Private italian lessons

one-to-one Italian lessons

Why take private or individual Italian lessons?

Private or individual lessons are particularly suitable for you if you want a tailor-made course because you need to focus on particular aspects or on particular skills in Italian.

During our group courses all language skills (Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing) are practiced, but if you need to focus your attention and studies on only one of these skills in particular e.g. on improving listening comprehension or speaking skills, then individual lessons are suitable for you.

Private or individual lessons vs. a group course

A group course must follow the average learning pace of the group and tries to accommodate everyone’s language needs and expectations, while also employing different didactic approaches in order to ‘activate’ the various forms of ‘intelligence’ (see Gardener’s Theory on Multiple Intelligences). 

A private or individual course, on the other hand, can focus on you and your most natural way of learning. Some people have an ‘auditory intelligence’ way of learning and need to listen a lot, some have a ‘visual intelligence’ and need a lot of visual aids, some have a ‘logical-rational intelligence’ and need a lot of systematization and exemplification, some have an ‘intra-personal intelligence’ and prefer solitary study, while some have an ‘inter-personal intelligence’ and like to work cooperatively in groups.

Knowing your natural way of learning can help the teacher to plan the individual lesson according to your personal learning preferences, needs, goals and character.

Are private lessons available for all language levels?

Private or individual lessons are available for all students from absolute beginners (A0 level) up to the highest levels (C1 and C2).

Private Italian lessons for a specific purpose

Individual lessons are more suitable than a group course if you have limited time or need to work on a specific language area or topic as they are, by nature, more intensive.

You may need to learn Italian for work or study or to learn vocabulary specific to a particular profession e.g. Business Italian, Italian for business correspondence, Italian for finance, Italian for law, Italian for fashion, Italian for medicine etc.

Can I do a private course with another person?

In addition to the individual 1-to-1 Italian course, we also offer 2-to-1 and upon request 3-to-1 courses. Therefore, you can ask your friends, boyfriend/girlfriend, husband/wife, father/mother, son/daughter etc. to come and study with you. The important thing is that you all have roughly the same level of competence in Italian.

If I do a private course, can I still participate in the cultural activities program?

The weekly socio-cultural activities program is available to every student on all our courses. The afternoon or evening socio-cultural activities are also part of your Italian language learning program after all!
