More Flexibility

Blended learning combines face-to-face learning and online learning by taking the benefits of both teaching methods to enhance your learning experience.

Are you looking for a course format that allows for flexible timing? Do you travel a lot or cannot attend classes at the Goethe-Institut on a regular basis? Then a blended learning course could be the right programme for you.

Blended learning with the Goethe-Institut – your advantages

With a blended learning course you can study at times convenient to you: in the morning, in the evening, at night – whenever your job, family or other commitments permit. Our blended learning course is as flexible as you need it to be. Classroom sessions take place once a week and focus on developing your speaking skills. You need to allow for about 4 extra hours per week for your online studies and homework.
Whether you are at home, work or university - all you need for the blended learning course is a computer or notebook with internet connection. A lot of the exercises are even available for your smartphone.
Learn at the pace that suits you. If you are a fast learner, you do not have to wait for others to continue. The online learning platform is available 24/7 and you can repeat each task as many times as you wish.
Have you ever tried to study a language by yourself but found it difficult to stay dedicated and focused? In our blended learning course you will be in touch with other students and can support each other. Your tutor will be available to answer your questions by e-mail, chat, forum or in person during your lessons at the Goethe-Institut. You will also receive regular feedback about your online assignments to ensure that you are on track with your studies.
Are you looking for a flexible learning programme which allows you to study with a group? A blended learning course offers you the best of both worlds. On the one hand, it is largely up to you where and when you want to learn. On the other hand, you will not be alone as you have contact with other students and your teacher. This will help you keep motivated and apply your language skills in a communicative way. At the computer you will mainly practice your reading, writing and listening skills and will interact with other students in forums. During your lessons at the Goethe-Institut you will apply what you have learned and practice your pronunciation and conversation skills.
As with all other courses at the Goethe-Institute you will also receive textbooks, CD´s and a DVD-ROM that will allow you to carry on with your studies even if your computer or internet connection are not available. The exercises will develop the practical language skills you need to use your German right from the start.
