Our Blended Learning approach

Our Blended Learning approach

Our VWU classes are in-classroom courses with blended learning components. Our classes are built on the most modern methods and digital elements and blended learning approaches.

Concept

Our VWU German classes consist of four in-classrom and one online course day. This Blended Learning approach is a reaction to the new learning reality that our students face. At university as well as in work environments, online learning and usage of digital tools are nowadays a requirement for which we prepare our students in the best way possible. Moreover, Blended Learning trains viable self study skills that will be necessary throughout your university path. Our courses train all language skills, conveyed through a mixture of modern, communicative methods and supported by the targeted implementation of digital tools and apps, during in-classroom as well as online sessions.

In the case of face-to-face courses, we reserve the right, in accordance with our General Terms and Conditions, to switch to home learning in the event of official closure of our locations (e.g. due to COV-19).
