Private Italian lessons are the best option for students with specific needs, as the course can be tailored to the individual needs and goals of the student after a discussion with the teacher.
Private Italian lessons are an excellent alternative to group courses, because they allow the student to work with the teacher on a one-on-one basis and focus on specific grammar, culture and news issues, or on any other subject that the student may be particularly interested in. Moreover, they can be useful for students who have already attended a group course and need to strengthen and practice their knowledge and the acquired language skills.
Individual lessons are recommended for those students who aim at obtaining an official Italian language certification (CELI, CILS, PLIDA) and therefore require specific training on the contents and procedures of the relevant examination. This method is also valid for people who need to use Italian in their business dealings and wish to learn the specific economic, business, legal, medical or tourist jargon, or more generally, learn the language that can apply to professional situations in general.
It is possible to take private lessons with a friend or in small groups of 2-3 people, provided all participant have the same level of knowledge of the Italian language. The calendar of classes is flexible; it is possible to attend private Italian language lessons on any day of the year, including on Saturdays and Sundays, by agreeing a time with the teacher.
