Flexible Italian Language Courses For Living

Flexible Italian Language CoursesItalian for Living

Whatever reason you have for wanting to learn Italian, we can help you.

You may be planning a holiday in Italy or a Italian-speaking country or, perhaps, you are even going to move there permanently.

You could have a Italian or Italian-speaking partner, and would like to be able to communicate in their language, or you may just be interested for no other reason that you have always been attracted by the people who speak Italian and the culture surrounding them.

You might just be looking to communicate, at a basic level, on holiday or you could be looking to fully interact with non-English-speaking in-laws.

Whether you are a complete beginner or have some knowledge of your ‘target language’ already, we can create an Italian programme that will correspond to your own individual needs and requirements!

Whatever it is, we are here for you!

How it works - View / Hide

We visit you (free of charge and obligation) in your home, or wherever you plan to have your Italian classes take place, to discuss your needs. Following an assessment, we can then propose

  • a one-to-one or small group class (Ideally of up to 6 participants although we can cater for larger groups)
  • weekly, bi-weekly, semi-intensive or intensive classes, ranging from a single 90 minute class each week, through to a number of hours every day over a shorter period
  • ad-hoc maintenance sessions if you already have a sufficiently good level

with these taking place either as

  • regular classes on the same day/s and at the same time/s
  • classes booked ahead on a diary system or week-by-week to suit you (This option can be less easy for participants to administer if it is a group class)
  • a combination of the above

Whatever you choose, all are subject to only 24 hours notice of cancellation, so you can even reschedule your Italian class to allow you to attend that short-notice commitment.

We provide individually created and selected course materials free of charge, so all you should bring is a pen and paper.

Whilst our Italian teachers are dedicated professionals, our office staff are on-hand to help throughout your course with us – we are just an email or telephone call away!

Why it works - View / Hide

We select our Italian teachers carefully to ensure that you get the maximum return upon your time with us. The principle criteria by which they are chosen are good teaching ability and pleasant and positive personality, with both being required.

As all of our teachers are native-speakers, you receive your Italian classes from a person who speaks Italian as a mother tongue, enabling you to reproduce the language from its original form.

You have the same Italian teacher* throughout your course, allowing you to maintain a good working relationship and ensuring that the teacher has ongoing, first-hand knowledge of your progress at every class. Should you wish to be exposed to different accents and voices, we can arrange for a periodic change of teacher.

* For intensive and, sometimes, semi-intensive courses, two or more teachers work as a team with you, liaising directly with each other before and after classes. This is to ensure that your class is always fresh and dynamic.
