ITALIAN SMALL GROUP COURSES (3 - 4 participants per class)

italian small group courses

Our small group courses in Florence of Italian language are intensive classes with max. 4 students per group*. Being only in 3 or 4 people per class they assure a full exposure and immediate introduction into the language. Therefore, they are an optimal course choice for all those who prefer to participate in a group course but still wish to have individual attention from the teacher.

Thanks to the fact that in a small group course the students share their time with only 2 or 3 others, their active participation at the lesson of doing in person the exercises and conversation is quite high. As the practice under the guidance of an experienced teacher is one of the key factors in the process of language learning, a small group course enables the students to achieve good results in only a few weeks of course. In fact, 2 weeks of a small group course correspond to about 4 weeks of a standard course (8-12 students) or 1 week of a personalized one-to-one course.
