Course consists, like the basic course, of 15 group lesson hours per week, from 09:00 until 12:20, but in the afternoon it offers the extra of either 4 hours (2 hours per day twice a week) of individual lessons per week of standard course or 8 hours (2 hours per 4 times a week) of individual lessons per week for intensive course.
This course is suited for those students who wish to study intensively and on specific topics but have little time available: it can be taken for a minimum of 1 week. In the individual lessons students can choose to specialize in a particular area of the language – e.g., business Italian, Italian for journalism or politics, literature, conversation, history of art, etc.
The advantage of the individual lessons is that they are tailored to the specific requirements of the student, and therefore the pace and content of the lessons are adapted according to the individual so that he or she may learn in a relaxed atmosphere with the undivided attention of the teacher.
Starting dates: every Monday.
Duration: minimum 1 week.
Lesson in group: 3 per day. 1 hour of lesson = 60 minutes. 15 hours per week + 4 private lessons.
Individual lessons: 4/8 per week. 1 hour of lesson = 60 minutes.
