How do private language lessons with accommodation with a teacher work?

These are programs that adapt absolutely to all ages!

Three different options are available. These combine accommodation in a single room with 3 meals per day and:

  • 15, 20, 25 or 30 individual language lessons per week.
  • 10, 15, 20 o 25 individual lessons + 5 hours of general activities with the teacher per week.
  • 10, 15, 20 o 25 individual lessons per week + cultural, sports or leisure activities.

Each lesson lasts one hour. Please note that most of the time teachers live in the suburbs, not in the city centers. Indeed, there are more spaces in the suburbs for larger houses that can accommodate foreign students. On the other hand, the language schools we work with are always located in the centre of the cities. The activities allow you to directly experience the language you decide to study. The way of learning the language is therefore identical to the way you learned your own language and at your own pace. We always try to find a teacher who has interests in common with the student. This is in order to more easily create a connection and complicity between them. Each geographical area where there are teachers available is managed by a “local organizer”. The responsibility of this one is to follow the progress of the students and guarantee them an enriching experience. In case of any problem whatsoever the student can always get in touch directly by phone with the local organizer. The latter will provide support, advice and constructive solutions. All professors we work with must have an official teaching degree or a privately accepted academic degree (or equivalent). And they must have at least 2 years of teaching experience. Checking their accreditations and inspecting the accommodation offered is also part of the tasks of the local organizers.

Why take private language lessons while being hosted by a teacher?

The most effective way to learn and master a language is to be 100% immersed in a country where that language is spoken. And this is precisely the principle of this special program that offers language courses as well as accommodation with a private teacher. It is a totally differentlanguage immersion experience than taking classes at a language school. Firstly because there is no daily journey to get to school, and secondly because they are individual lessons and therefore really personalized. In addition, there are no specific dates to start the lessons as is the case for most schools. And the most important thing is that you will not be able to speak your mother tongue because you will have no contact with other students who speak the same language as you. Any conversations you will have outside of lessons will be in the language being studied and with native speakers. Your teacher will guide and correct you not only during class hours but also at any time you are with him/her. Private lessons can be combined with activities (general activities defined with the teacher at the time of starting the program, or predefined activities: cultural, sports or leisure).
