4. Live online German courses

In addition to our course offer in Vienna we also offer live online German courses. There are different options of live online courses for adults 16+, teens 12-18, German Teachers´ course, Certificate Preparation course for OSD or TELC, Business German course and German for adults 50+.

Many of our student choose our live online classes, because they prefer the opportunity of studying in small, international groups from home. They value the chance of learning German with a native speaker teacher in their free time in a familiar environment. 2 lessons of live online cultural programme are included each week, which gives the students additional insight into Austria's history and culture. Our live online classes are the ideal preparation for a future language course at ActiLingua Academy.

The safety of all course participants and employees is our top priority. In the implementation of our safety guidelines, the highest level of student safety is key and group sizes and physical distance are designed in accordance with the applicable regulations. It is important to adhered to the physical distance guidelines and to wear a mouth-nose-protection at some indoor venues (e.g. public transport, health care).
