Deutsch _1ive© - German lessons online

TANDEM Köln offers German online courses for the levels A2, B1, B2 and C1. Deutsch _1ive is not a classic online learning. This innovative format can do more! Here you learn German interActively most of the time together with our experienced teachers and other course participants from all over the world!

Active communication and life-like settings based on our Talk-it-easy!-method are our top priority in these courses. Supplemented by a range of tools and apps, you will also experience lively and varied German lessons inside the virtual classroom, where all language skills will be trained.

As part of your German course, we also offer you an online consultation once a week for learning advice.

For technical questions and the exchange of experiences with other students regarding online learning, please visit our TANDEM Köln Forum. Here you will also find useful links for learning German.

And so that you can network with other course participants from Cologne and all over the world, we organise an online cultural programme once a week.

And last but not least for finding a TANDEM partner, you can use our TANDEM Köln Facebook group.
