Blended Learning Courses

For those of you looking for the most face-to-face time with other course participants and our instructors, this is the option for you. These courses consist of 50% live group sessions, and 50% flexible online learning, closely supported by your instructors. With our virtual classroom platform, the online live sessions are just as interactive as meeting at the institute. The group sessions will take place online until in-person classes may resume safely, after which the classes will be once again held at the Goethe-Institut as usual.

Online Course Offerings

These courses are fully online and are offered year round. You have live online group meetings approximately every two weeks, but not as many as in the blended courses. 8-week and 16-week course options are available. You will be working more independently and more intensively in this format compared to Blended Learning Courses.


All exams scheduled for 27 March 2020 have been postponed until 8 May 2020 and we have contacted all participants who were registered. If you are unable to participate in May, we will issue you a full refund ASAP. Please contact us for further assistance:
