Therefore the small group courses are a good middle way between a one-to-one course and a general group course for all those who do not have any special requests and do not need a personalized program (for the specialization of a particular vocabulary / focus on a particular aspect of the language). Our small group courses meet the same high standards of personal attention and care given to the school's individual programs and language services.
The small group courses "A-gr", "B-gr" and "D-gr" are organized for beginners, intermediate and advanced level.
The afternoon course "S-gr" has been designed for anyone who works or studies in Florence and has only little time to devote to the study of Italian. This course is offered at the beginner and intermediate level only. For those with advanced knowledge of Italian, we recommend our one-to-one courses, which give the opportunity of having a personalized approach.
- The small group courses have a minimum length of 2 weeks and are scheduled from Monday through Friday
- The level will be determined by the results of our language test.
You can also chose the Superintensive Italian One-To-One Courses, which are made for those who wish to make most of their time and/or need to study specific aspects of the language.
Since 1985 the Institute Galilei has been specializing in Italian one-to-one courses to meet the needs of all those who wish to make most of their time and/or need to study specific aspects of the language for their work/studies – business people, students and private persons of all ages.
The one-to-one courses are characterized by the individual study programs, which are tailored to the linguistic needs and the profile of each student taking into consideration his/her linguistic background, age, motivation and learning structure. In this way, it is possible to focus also on particular aspects of the language, such as grammar, conversation, pronunciation etc. and/or to include the vocabulary of the Italian language you use for your work / study.
In the process of learning a language, the fact of being continuously follow by an experienced teacher and practicing the Italian structures actively during this time permits to accelerate a lot the speed of learning. One week of our one-to-one courses corresponds to about a month with a regular size group class. The study program is developing according to the daily results.
Non-beginners are asked before the beginning of the course to complete our Italian language test and send it to us so that we can ascertain their specific knowledge. The Italian test serves as an aid to structure the student's course, and to choose from our team of Italian language teachers, those with the expertise best suited for each student's needs.
