One-to-one & small group courses

The Italian one-to-one and small group courses (max. 4 students) enable the students to put the learned grammar structures directly into practise because they assure a high degree of active participation at the lesson.

In fact, the experience showed us that the key factors for quick and in-depth results are a rigorous attention of the teacher to each student, a studying program tailored to the individual linguistic needs as well as a continuous practise of the learned structures under the guidance of an experienced teacher. In order to learn more about the main differences of studying the Italian language in a one-to-one courses, a small group or bigger groups, please consult the page “considerations”

In terms of results, this is the reason why 1 week in one of our Italian one-to-one courses corresponds to approximately 1 month in class with a regular size group of students. A 2-week course of a small group course corresponds to approximately 1 month in a normal size class.
