Small Group Courses

All classes are 90 minutes long.

All the courses are 8 week long unless otherwise stated in the course description.
During the classes, at all levels, the emphasis is on spoken communication and active interaction. The method is based on the communicative approach.
We do our best to propose interesting and fun activities during the classes. Usually every second class we’ll spend 20-30 minutes listening to and working on dialogues. These will be mostly authentic dialogues (no slow motion speech!) chosen according to the class level and the students’needs.
