I had a great experience with both the school and my teacher, Martina K. I would recomment both without hesitation, whether you are looking for regular classes to maintain or improve your German or whether you are looking for an intensive course to help prepare for an exam (my case). I came to Martina with a difficult task - to prepare me for B1-level exam within 6 weeks, with only vague knowledge of the language and its rules beforehand. Mission accomplished. Martina was an intensive teacher, who consistently pushed me to make fast-paced progress. At the same time, she never stopped to encourage me. Our classes were perfectly tailored both to help PASS the exam (pragmatic exercises and tips geared towards understanding what the demands of the exam are, and how they can be satisfied) and to strengthen the areas in which I was weaker. I would describe the learning experience as comprehensive and progress-oriented. The platform - GOI - is definitely user-friendly and ideal for any kind of online student. All administrative tasks, such as scheduling, rescheduling, cancelling, choosing a teacher and so on, can be made within a click or two. The display of the website is clear as can be. Overall, I am a satisfied client. I got what I came for and had fun while doing it. Martina is a fun, friendly, competent and professional teacher, and the platform is as good as you can find online.
I have been taking classes from GOI and my teacher is Angela R. I am at B2 level in my German studies and I have had amazing experience.- GOI uses Google platform which is amazing. All the materials are right there and I can access them from my laptop, phone or iPad. I can study whenever I want. No excuses! - As we do class my teacher writes down all the vocabulary that I do not know and sends me as Quizlet cards that I can study any time.- Also all the class materials are in Google Docs. As we do the class we can collaborate nicely and simultaneously. - My teacher (Angela R.) is great. She always comes prepared and tailors the class according to my needs. We focus on things that I have difficulties. She gives me homework just enough to support my development. She is always in a positive mood. She explains difficult concepts very well. We have a smooth, encouraging and positive teacher-student relationship. My over all experience is great and exceeded my expectations.
After i take my A1. 1class i decide to continue my lessons with GOI Gmbh. Main reason is Anna El-Serazh. She try to give all from her to learn me. For me is good that she also speak freely English and if i do not understand something she could explain me.When i do not understand something , she try to explain me until i do not understand it clear... She is also very good orgnised and always prepare everything before class start and we have our grammer book, which is very useful.Definetly recommend her ...
I have been having a great time learning German with Surhbi. She is a lively person full of passion in having conversation with people and teaching German. For those who feel shy applying unfamiliar languages, an one-on-one German course is definitely a good choice for you. Surhbi is so experienced that she can easily capture what you mean, even if you cannot yet structure the sentences with perfect grammar. Then, of course, she will smoothly guide you and note down the mistakes you made, and facilitate you to restructure the sentence. By this way, you can boost your confidence for speaking German in daily life. For those who can already speak some German, Surhbi can help fine-tuning the language and to help you differentiate subtle differences between terms, so you will be able to apply the language more precisely.An extra bonus for learning with Surhbi is that she is a native English speaker. From time to time, she uses English to explain some German terms to me, which is very efficient and to-the-point. If you do not yet have experience learning a language online, you should definitely give it a try. It is such a great way of learning that you should grasp. It saves you a lot of time, keeps all your learning materials archived in a cloud folder. It also gives you a chance to get in touch with excellent language teachers worldwide. You can access the equally high-quality teachers in your home town and have the instructor that suits you the best.Ms. Lo aus Taiwan
Ich habe die Vorbereitung für TELC C1 Deutsch mit Julia K. gemacht. Absolut top und empfehlenswert! In kurzer Zeit (2 Monate, von B2->C1) hat sie mich für TELC C1 so gut vorbereitet, dass ich beim ersten Versuch die Prüfung bestanden habe und das Zertifikat bekommen habe. Keine Überraschung bei der Prüfung, ich war völlig bereit und habe alles gut erledigt.Ich bin mit den Unterrichten von Julia K. sehr zufrieden und kann sie nur weiter empfehlen.
I am having a great experience with learning German with GOI! My teacher, Martina K., is great and very professional and she makes the learning fun and interesting. My motivation to learn has gone up since I started.The online institute set-up is very flexible yet well structured, online tools very convenient and the teaching methodology works very well for me so far. I would recommend GOI warmly!
I have been exceptionally pleased with every aspect of my experience with GOI and my teacher Martina K. She is wonderful, encouraging and knowledgeable; our lessons have been proactive, efficient and flexible according to my needs. I liked her style and attitude as well where she was straightforward to the points and my development areas. Lessons was also very effective through google classroom and complemented with follow up materials from my teacher. I extended my course after the first package and hope to continue with Martina in the future.
Me and my wife have been using GOI for about half a year already and we are super happy with it. Thanks to my teacher, Martina K, I was able to drastically up skill my German. With only 2 months of lessons I already felt comfortable having basic conversations with people, ordering food, asking for directions, chitchatting, even talking to colleagues.I really enjoy my classes with Martina K, in only 3 months I finished A1 thanks her support and encouragement and I'm know on my way to completing A2.I love the 1:1 format and private lessons. It allows you to learn at your own pace.I have ordered a second packet of 50 hours which will give me enough lessons until next year! I recommended it to many friends that have also sign up!Awesome platform to learn German
I had a great experience with Lena R. She is a native speaker, very professional and friendly german teacher. She tailored the lessons carefully to my individual needs and helped me to identify the gaps in my german knowledge. With her help I could speed up my learning really significantly. She always made an extra effort to make each lesson unique and interesting for me. On top of it all, she is a very pleasant and friendly person which made the lessons enjoyable. I warmly recommend Lena R as a german teacher, she is definitely one of the best I have ever encountered. :)
I started learning German online due to COVID-19, the registration process with GOI was very easy and user friendly, my teacher Ana M. is also very patient and always ready with new exercises and with a smile on her face, she took the time to learn about my strength and weaknesses in German to prepare a study plan that will get me ready to take the exams. It is easy to book lessons using the system, and I also like that there is some flexibility in booking process, which make very convenient for me even when i am on business travels. I enjoy my German lessons at GOI with Ana M. and it is one of the positive outcome i had as a result of COVID-19.
I have been taking lessons with Angela. I am very satisfied. The lessons can be quite flexible - Angela adjusts the lessons to my needs. I can take a break for a few weeks then start again. I can go slower or faster, can focus on where I want to improve. Can take lessons on the weekend, or evening. It is recommended for people who require flexibility both in terms of time and how you want to study.
Hello all, i'm taking lesson since April with teacher Angela R. I'm fully satisfied with my teacher, the way she teachs, the way the lessons are mades works really good for me. Angela is very prepared and patient, i was a little scared at the beginning because i was not sure to find the time to study and do homeworks between one lesson and another. I can assure you with this GOI method all lesson are tailored over your needs and you can see the progression by yourself, during the months. I'm sure i will continue with Angela and GOI to achieve my goal which is B2 level of german.
I have been learning German with Maria L for the last 2 months and it's been a great experience! I love how the teacher uses technology to make classes interactive and easy to understand. I have good progress and feel much more comfortable speaking German in my daily life now and have a lot of motivation to continue studying!
I have been self learning German for a while and it was quite chaotic (although I have lots of motivation). I was glad to start working with Ana at the German Institute to get my knowledge organized. Now I am filling in the holes in my knowledge and Ana is teaching me the basics so that I get a good basis to start from and integrate what I know with what I am learning. I very much feel I am learning correctly now and will make good and I hope fast progress. I highly recommend Ana M. to anyone who is serious about learning German.
I've taken German lessons at a school in a small group with 3 other students, and I've found that the tutors here on GOI know how to better explain grammar and provide materials easily in a digital format. It's obviously a question of how much time and work you put into learning a language. But I've found that it's much better to advance at my own pace when I can get materials right away that GOI provides and directs me to. I've also tried out other skype / online tutors but I found German Online Institute the easiest to navigate and I love how they provide materials and work off google classrooms, etc. It's very accessible. Most importantly, my German tutor (Elisabeta K) is extremely good at explaining grammar, which is something I didn't get even from an in-person school, and she easily customizes my lessons so it's what I need to work on! Thanks!!!
I am very happy with GOI services, always efficient and the accesses are very intuitive. I have been having classes with Irma D. for few weeks now, and I totally recommend her. She is very kind and makes the learning process very easy and adjusted at your pace. She always has a way to make you understand! :)
Maja S. is a great teacher. She understands my learning goal and always makes sure that my 60 minutes session is structured well and balanced between different elements of the learning plan. I particularly like the Tafel she produces each time that captures the mistakes I made during the free talk section of the lesson, so that I am conscious of my weak points and can improve in focus. The flashcard is also super useful.
