Really excellent teacher ( Susanna T), website is a little shaky at times but booking process is simple and the classroom setup straightforward. A very good option to practice German at home.

I'm taking individual lessons with Jasmin S since June/July 2019, and I couldn't be more satisfied. Jasmin S is very organized, flexible, and the lessons are really enjoyable. So, I recommend learning German at the Institut and in particular with Jasmin S.

First experience was good. I have just booked a 5-hour package. It is good that we can select the same teacher for our private lessons. And this can be organised directly with the teacher.

I thoroughly enjoy my experience and lessons with Maja S. She's patient and friendly and I like that many interesting materials are used in the class to help me understand better.The process of signing up with GOI is simple but it is a little frustrating to navigate around the platform.

Anne Wang - March 28, 2020

I always have problems in pronunciation. My friend recommended me to have an online GOI tutor. Even dislike online tutoring, I give t a shot. It really surprised me because they're really professional. First, there's free trial before getting start. The tutor was thoughtful to understand my learning experience and individual goal. A questionnaire was made in the beginning. I didn't expect it could be customized as this. Secondly, my tutor Erna always prepare plenty materials in class and after class. They are suitable my level and attractive to me. I'm able to learn better and practice more. Third, the tuition is fair enough. My company had ever hired a tutor for me, and the price is unbelievable expensive but the quality is totally opposite. Therefore, I also recommend to apply a tutor from GOI GmnH.

Ef - March 28, 2020

I have been doing classes with Alexandra M. She is very friendly, structured and gives me motivation to keep going with language learning even when its sometimes challenging. I would and have recommended GOI to my friends. One critique though: is that the website could be more user friendly. Booking appointments can be quite fiddly and sometimes links are broken.

Stefanie Pinheiro - March 26, 2020

I have been learning German for almost 2 years now and I can say that my classes with David definitly made a diference on my progress. With David's help I was able to successfully pass my B1 Goethe Certificate Exam. I found my classes with David so helpful that after passing my exam I decided to continue the classes in order to keep improving the level of my German. David is a great teacher, patient and creative, who always finds different and fun ways to teach new topics. German classes with David are definitly not boring. GOI has a great platform which makes it easy to interact with your teacher and to make notes during your classes in order to have some study materials for later.

Spanish Student - March 24, 2020

I have been trying to learn German for a long time. However, the usual German courses I attended, were full of students and at times when I am working, so it was difficult to practice and properly learn the language. So, I started this online German course with the hope this would change. And I think I made the correct decision! My teacher Tanja is really good. She prepares lectures, exercises, homeworks, discussions about some current topic to make the most out of one hour. She clearly explains the concepts and makes the time together enjoyable and useful. I really recommend her as a teacher and in general this way of learning languages. Also, one can easily arrange the appointments so there is no additional stress about timing.

Eleonora Chatzipolichroni - March 24, 2020

I have been taking private lessons on the GOI platform three times a week for the last three weeks. Having tried Skype lessons before I was a bit apprehensive. I am very pleased to say that these are not just Skype lessons. The platform provides for a very interactive experience and makes best use of technology. My teacher Angela R. is in one word excellent. She not only provides me with the material I need to advance, but also assists me in a very constructive way, always taking into account my needs. She takes time to find the right materials and prepare. And very importantly she motivates me to keep learning and improving.

Jayne Gidlow - March 20, 2020

Overall an excellent learning experience for my needs. The online German institute was able, firstly, to offer me exactly the times and dates that I needed to do a intensive course for a very specific purpose. I was assigned an excellent teacher, Nikola B, who listened carefully to my needs, sourced relevant materials and made suggestions regarding areas of language where I needed to improve. He also appreciated what could be done in the time allotted for the course. I feel better about doing my job in German, have a fuller understanding of language structures and feel motivated to keep learning and improving! I can certainly recommend him. Thank you so much!

J Robert Beaumont - March 16, 2020

Since starting A. 1.1 at the GOI last October, I cannot praise Maida C's teaching philosophy, her charming and supportive personality and her skills as a German teacher enough. She is a credit to the GOI! My experience with her has been always pleasant, helpful and kind, and most importantly flexible and understanding in terms of lesson planning and homework objectives. Maida C uses a variety of materials, from a classic textbook to specifically tailored online video with questions along with engaging worksheets. With speaking currently my hardest skill, Maida C always listens closely and uses her natural empathy to help without reproach or shame - always positive and encouraging. We talk about German and Austrian culture too. When imagining Vienna, I can almost taste the Tafelspitz and the Sachertorte! :)

George Perdikeas - March 15, 2020

I have been using GOI for more than 2 years now. I started from scratch and so far was able to pass 2 Goethe-Institute exams, A1 & A2 levels, currently working together with my good teacher Maja towards the B1 level. I am very pleased with the experience thus far, the booking/payment is simple and reliable, I see clear results, and I am very happy with my teacher Maja who is very knowledgeable, friendly, patient and supportive in my journey to learn German. My only hesitation would be that the prices seem to go up quite considerably each year.

Souzana - March 15, 2020

I am very pleased with the lesson and my progress. I feel I am learning a lot very fast! I travel a lot for work so the fact that I am flexible and I can plan the classes according to my schedule is very useful for me and it was the main reason I chose to take lessons at GOI. My teacher Savica P. is excellent and she always prepares the classes perfectly! Also communication with her is very efficient both during the lesson and for additional questions and clarifications by email after the class!

Ursula Rabar - March 14, 2020

I have been using this platform to learn German since January 2020 and am very happy with the flexibility and dedication of my teacher. Maja S. is very patient and supportive. I've noticed an improvement in my vocabulary and grammar understanding straight away. It would have been 5 stars if the platform was a little better, I receive way too many reminders (via email and text) for my lessons and there is no easy way to find the account page with my own settings.

Yulia S. - March 12, 2020

Ich erinnere mich an den Tag im Juli 2014, an dem ich meinen Free Trial bei German Online Institute gebucht habe. Damals habe ich einfach auf den ersten Link in der Liste von Google-Ergebnissen geklickt und… ich hatte Glück! Seit 2014 bin ich bei der GOI. Am Anfang hatten wir noch keinen Kalender, keine Google-apps, alles war per E-Mail. Seitdem hat GOI einen weiten Weg zurückgelegt und hat sehr viel modernisiert und verbessert. Zusammen mit der Schule bin ich auch meinen Weg gegangen und dank der Hilfe meiner Lehrerin Anja habe ich es von A2 bis B2 geschafft. Meine B1 Prüfung habe ich 2017 mit dem erstaunlichen Resultat von 100% bestanden. Inzwischen habe ich eine Pause gemacht und habe dazu noch einen Schweizerdeutschkurs gemacht. Jetzt bin zurück bei GOI mit meiner neuen genialen Lehrerin Nele. Ich könnte mir wirklich für den C1 Kurs keine bessere Lehrerin wünschen. Ihre Deutschkenntnisse, ihre Persönlichkeit und die Fähigkeit neue Themen zu erklären bringen schon nach der kurzen Zeit sichtbare Ergebnisse. Nele hat einen guten Ausgleich zwischen «jetzt müssen wir lernen » und « jetzt dürfen wir über alles reden und Spass haben», den ich an Ihr sehr schätze. Je höher das Niveau, desto schwieriger ist es, eine gute und passende Lehrerin zu finden. Die Ansprüche sind höher und der Fortschritt wird langsamer (oder besser gesagt, weniger bemerkbar), als bei A1-2. Wie man sieht, bin ich mit meinem Unterricht bei GOI sehr zufrieden. Ich habe die Schule vielen meinen Kollegen empfohlen und habe bis heute von ihnen auch nur positive Feedbacks erhalten.

Christine - March 9, 2020

I have had an excellent experience with GOI and my teacher, Milena D.. She is friendly, patient and organised. She is flexible when I want to adjust my lessons or homework goals and provides constructive feedback on my progress. She explains topics thoroughly and teaches using a variety of materials such as videos, audio, role-play, and reading activities.

Stonestone - March 7, 2020

I have been extremely pleased with my experience with GOI and with my teacher, Lorenz. Our lessons are usually a mixture of reading and discussion of current news articles combined with readings from a textbook on business German that is well suited to my needs. Lorenz mostly uses German to explain words or expressions that I may not understand, which I appreciate.

My teacher, Ilda, is very kind and she is effectively helping me to quickly improve my German. I tried different methods and the one hour lesson with GOI is so far the best one. I recommend both the teacher and the website.

Jana. M Is an excellent teacher, she is attentive, driven and provides a versatile approach to teaching German - especially for individuals who speak one language and are dyslexic. Currently, I am studying A2, we follow up to date workbooks, which you can follow from home and during the lesson, this provides visual, oral and audio training for all types of learners. I am confident Jana will get me to the level of B1 over the course of this year.
