Many couples and professionals enjoy the flexible hours and curriculum of private group classes.
Our private group classes are designed to combine the dynamic learning environment of a group class, with the flexibility and personalization normally only available through our private one-on-one classes. Many couples traveling together enjoy this particular option, as it allows them to work alongside their spouse or partner whom they know and trust. This is also a great option if you have a group of friends or coworkers who wish to focus their area of study for professional reasons. We regularly have private groups dedicated to developing Spanish vocabulary related to such fields as medicine, business, and technology. Private group classes are also an excellent choice for groups who are similarly skilled, and who are all preparing for the same standard exam, such as the DELE or CELU.
Our private group classes are typically scheduled between 2pm and 6pm, Monday through Friday, with a minimum class length of one hour. Your group can determine the number of classes per week, and the length of each session. Openings are first come, first serve; the availability of spots varies a great deal, depending on factors including our current class schedule, season, and teacher availability.
Private group classes use the curriculum and exercises that best suit and benefit your group.
Private group classes tend to emphasize conversational exercises, in order to encourage interaction among students. However, other types of exercises can also be incorporated into the curriculum as needed, such as intensive writing exercises, social games, and interactive audio/video programs. Additionally, homework can be assigned according to the needs and wishes of your group. After each class, our academic director will meet with your teacher to make sure that your group is progressing well and on track to meet your goals. If necessary, the director will make adjustments for following class sessions, in order to make sure that you stay on track.
Private group classes are an excellent and cost-effective choice for couples and groups of friends who want to learn Spanish with one another.
Private group classes are for groups of individuals who wish to work and study together (private groups are not put together by the school–for those wanting this option, please see our small group classes). For those who wish to form their own group, all expected participants must complete our Spanish level assessment upon registration, so that we can make sure that everyone’s current skill levels are compatible for a shared learning environment.
The cost of private group classes is US$22 per person, per hour. This fee includes all class materials, tea or coffee during class, access to all on-site facilities, cultural workshops, and a class certificate. All you need to bring to class is a pen and a notebook to write on!
Discounts are also available for those who book 10 hours or more of private group classes ahead of time. Please see our prices page for more information.
