I have been recommended GOI and Lorenz by my friend, whom he successfully helped to prepare for the TELC exam. We have been having classes for almost 4 months now and I am seeing great progress: I am finally able to understand and speak German!Lorenz is listening to my requests very carefully and really makes an effort to adjust to the way I would like to learn the language. I look forward to the classes, the studying materials we use are interesting, diverse and never boring. I have absolutely nothing to complain about and can only highly recommend starting classes with Lorenz!Also, the actual format is perfect: classes are 1:1 so I can study topics important individually for me, I don't spend time on the commute and don't miss classes during traveling. 5 stars out of 5!
I've been a GOI student for quite some time and I have to say that, after trying several teachers, I'm very happy I've found Surbhi.Her methodology helps you to learn from your mistakes, without interrupting you after every wrong word or sentence. However, the thing I appreciate the most is the fact that she makes learning German look easy... even fun!I don't learn German because I want to, but because I have to. That has made the journey (before Surbhi) slow and difficult. Nevertheless, after four months with her, I have never had an "argh-I-wish-I-didn't-have-a-German-class-now" moment, quite the contrary.Therefore, I'm not lying when I say I look forward to my next class with Surbhi :)
I am having lessons with Meliha since few months now. I am making quite good progress now. Course organized by her is very structured and helps a lot to get better understanding. She is quite patient and tries to adjust with my pace and provides lessons accordingly. Ich gehe besser mit meinem Deutsch jeden Tag. Höffentlich bald ich Deutsch B1 Prüfung bestanden kann.
Since about a year I am having lessons at GOI with Clara K. and I am very happy of that. Clara is a very good teacher, with lot of patience. Moreover she does not stop me at every small error and focus on the theme or specific grammar topic at hand.She always asks me if I have any wish for next lesson and if everything we spoke about was clear.I particularly appreciate the flexibility GOI offers in learning: sometimes I can have lessons once a week, some other times just once a month and that would be not possible with classical front lessons in a class.Finally I also appreciate the possibility to review the course material whenever I want and to download it.I've already recommended GOI to several of my teammates and they're also very happy about it.
I have enjoyed my lessons with Jana M. - and have learned a lot. She is obviously very experienced and knowledgable in German. The best part of working with her is her responsiveness to feedback. I have requested a few additions or special foci in our lessons and she has responded immediately!
I've been a loyal GOI customer for nearly 4 years, and I can highly recommend it to anyone who needs professional teachers, individualized learning plan, and a schedule customized to their needs. Due to logistics, I've learned with different teachers (a replacement was always easy to arrange with the owner, regardless of reason - holidays, schedule change, type of expertise/personality etc) and I can recommend all of them. My favorite so far has been Lena R. - a competent and friendly conversation partner, a very thorough yet adaptable and quick on her feet teacher - with lots of encouragement, learning tips & ideas. My goal was to get admitted to a bachelor's program in psychology in Switzerland, and with Lena R.'s help, I passed all the written and oral exams. Not only did she help me with the German writing and speaking skills, she gave me invaluable practical feedback on the content of my self-presentation and the essay. I highly recommend investing your resources with GOI and booking with Lena R. if you can!
I have my german lessons with Surbhi. I found her really easy to learn with and such a good way of teaching. She teaches in such a friendly way. Highly recommend her for German. She is not only teaching grammar, words and situations but also making sure I pronounce the words in a proper way. That was something which I was not doing properly and her constant focus on this helps me with my pronunciation. Thanks Surbhi.
I started lessons in GOI in May 2019 rather as an experiment and I didn’t expect that it would work so well. Since then I do regular courses at C1 level and I am very happy with it. I had the luck to have as teacher Emily B.. Emily is a very good teacher and person. She is very pleasant, patient, always willing to help me, to give answers to all my questions, to explain unknown words and grammar, to fill in my gaps from previous years and to adjust to my complicated time schedule. Emily prepares the lesson always very good, she is structured and encouraging. I enjoy very much the lesson with her, it is never boring and my German has improved a lot in this time. I highly recommend her and the school!
Irma D. ist die beste Lehrerin der Welt!Ich empfehle Irma D. als Trainerin, sie arbeitet sehr strukturiert, gezielt, ergebniss orientiert.Sie hat faszinierende pedagogische skils und nicht nur, sie ist immer posittiv und macht den Unterricht sehr sehr spannend.Einmal mit Irma D dann kriegt man grosse Lust zum Lernen!
I would absolutely give a big 5 star review score to Julia k., not only because she is an extremely knowledgeable and professional teacher, but also she is very well organized and responsible person. It has been a great experience to prepare for TELC exam under her instruction, and I am very much looking forward to take more courses with her in near future.
Anastasia is WONDERFUL!I started learning German online with a very clear goal for progression. Anastasia jumped right on board from the very first trial session! She was so sweet and welcoming, and made me feel very comfortable in the class. She also worked diligently with me to ensure that I would meet my target. She was always available to answer questions outside of class, offer additional support, or review topics that remained unclear. She made the process feel organic and fluid. It was clear that she genuinely cared about my success as a learner of the German language and was willing to support however she could. Over the time, we also developed a lovely friendship and banter, which made it even more enjoyable! I am so grateful that I was paired with an amazing teacher like Anastasia. I cannot recommend her enough! :)
I've had classes with Tatiana S. for 2 years now and I'm extremely happy with the lessons and the progress. It's always fun as she picks interesting topics to discuss, which helps me practice speaking in complex subjects, correcting grammar and learning vocabulary. I can absolutely recommend Tatiana as a teacher, She's wonderful. The flexible dynamic of GOI is also ideal for me in order to keep consistency over time and not miss classes due to work or traveling. I can just have classes on the go, wherever I am.
It is really great learning experience with GOI. It provides me good flexibility to learn German considering my hectic work schedule. I had started with A2 intensive course with the goal of passing Goethe A2 certification. It was a tough target (w.r.t timeline) but Anastasia shaped the course perfectly according to my level of knowledge. I am highly impressed to see the dedication and efforts put by Anastasia to achieve my goal.She had structured the learning plan very well to prepare me for the exam. Apart from learning, I have now developed interest in the language and looking forward to more classes and new targets. Big Thanks To Anastasia & GOI for doing wonderful job.
