German Online Institute is definitely one of the best language courses I've ever attended.You will have the chance to improve not only grammatical skills but also speaking skills with experienced native teachers.I improved my German skills significantly thanks to the flexible course schedule, experienced and helpful attitude of all GOI Family.I would recommend German Online Institute to anyone who is interested in becoming fluent in German.
Önsel B.A. (Turkey, students since 2013)
I am really glad I found them. They've prepared me for C1 Goethe Certificate in a few months and I've made a great progress in my speaking skills. It's very comfortable way of learning language - time scheduling is very flexible, you learn from your home and you have all your new grammar vocabulary in Skype history log. Lessons are fun and friendly, it's very easy to find a topic to discuss and you also learn a few good tips how to improve your German in your free time. I really DO recommend.
Martin S. (Czech R., student 2012-2013)
I have been a student of the German Online Institute for two years now, and I really enjoy the one-on-one instruction and the conversation that I couldn't get in a classroom environment.  Of course with Skype it's extremely convenient -- during my lunch hour at home, I can take lessons from a German native who lives in Berlin.  My instructor challenges me and doesn't let me get lazy in our conversations.  She's flexible, punctual, and easy to chat with.   
Jim C. (USA, student since 2011)
 I'm very happy with the lessons that I am taking.  When I started taking classes with German Online Institute, I could not speak one sentence in German.  After three months I am able to have a conversation with my teacher only in German.  My teacher Claudia is amazing.  She knows how to make the class enjoyable while challenging me at the same time.  I highly recommend German Online Institute for their professionalism and results. 
Wellington B.G. (USA, student since 2013)
 The school offers a very pleasant and convenient way to keep your German alive. As a pretty busy person I appreciate the opportunity to have regular flexibly scheduled and highly customized classes without the need to travel to a physical classroom. 
Sergey Z. (Russia, student since 2012)
I started German lessons as beginner and had to try and fit them into my very busy schedule. Learning with the German Online Institute has been the perfect solution. My teacher, Olesia, is fantastic and very flexible, enabling me to have short lessons in my lunch break, early in the morning or late at night - and is often available at very short notice. I am really enjoying my lessons and hope to continue making good progress over the next few months. 
Camilla M. (GB, student since 2013)
At first thought about the idea learning via Skype, it didn't work in my head but your school offer a free trial class so actually i don't have anything to lose so i tried it and it was far better than i thought so l asked for more classes i found it more better so l left my private live in person teacher and take more classes with the school because you can really develop all language skills via Skype believe it or not now i have recommended the school for some of my friends and one of them tried it and he did  the same how l said in the start
Abdulqader A. (Saudi Arabia, student since 2013)
 I have been taking one hour lessons once a week through German Online Institute  since February 2013. My teacher Claudia is wonderful. I needed help with conversation, so she prepares a lesson, but also takes time to chit chat with me in German. The lessons have help me become much more confident speaking German and are reasonably priced.
Kevin (UK, since 2013)
"After several years without learning German, I decided to resume my contact with this language in October because currently it is very useful for my job.
At first I was a little bit skeptical to take lessons by Skype, but after almost a year, I´ve no doubt that it´s a great way to gain access to a native speaker.  
In this time I´ve had lessons with Nina, and I learn grammar, listening and speaking because of her great patience and always with a smile. She is very attentive and helpful on correcting errors and teaching enjoyable lessons"
Beatriz M.R. (Spain / student since 2012)
After 2-5 years living in a German speaking country not succeeding to join German lessons due to working and private duties I was feeling extremely frustrated for not being able to learn and communicate on the language of the country I live at. Just by chance I learnt about German Online Institute… pitfalls are gone, now, I can manage the schedule with extreme flexibility with my teacher. Besides a 1:1 learning session allows for individualised attention and tailored process… all this with an extremely affordable and competitive price.
