Private lessons mean you can learn at your own pace and according to your own schedule. One-on-one lessons are also the most intensive way to immerse yourself in a foreign language. You may set up any day or time for your classes, including weekends and evening hours. The lessons may be held at your Manhattan office, home or at our language institute. Students meet with their private teacher from once a week to every day. Total immersion courses are ideal for people relocating to a foreign country and may include a cross-cultural training component.
INTRO / TRAVEL CRASH COURSES
Want to make sure that the next time you travel abroad you don't order the sheep's brain entrée instead of the steak? Interested in just checking out a new language before making a commitment? Consider this your first date! Our 2-hour Intro/Travel courses will take you through the vocabulary and phrases you will need to get through a couple of typical travel situations and introduce you to your new second language. If you fall in love with your new language and decide to take a class with us within in 3 months, we'll waive the $50 registration fee! The only question you have to ask yourself is "What have I got to lose?"
