Private Courses (One-on-One Lessons)

There are many reasons to prefer an Individualized Course. Personal instructions are the best option for you if you feel disturbed by other students or if you need specialized vocabulary. Also if you already know some Spanish but have trouble to speak, the more focused conversation will insure fast progress. You can also add individual classes to any group course; have a look at our combination courses.

One-on-one setting is ideal for professionals that need to improve their language skills to work in a Spanish speaking country. Special courses can be given with terminology in many fields such as: medical, education, general business, environmental, scientific, law, etc.

Private Courses are offered with different amounts of lessons per week. You can choose if you want to receive 10, 20 or 30 lessons, which means 2, 4 or 6 lessons per day. So you will always have enough time to join our excursions too.
