Can't attend a class in person? We offer virtual tuition via SKYPE. Classes are LIVE with professional teachers. All the study material is supplied and included in the fees.
How long is a lesson? There are no pres-set limits - you are free to decide with your tutor how long you want to your lessons to be. For example, you may only have 30 minutes available during your lunch break, have one or two afternoons free every week, or may be away frequently because of work but want to have some continutity to your studies. That's no problem!
Subject to agreement between you and your tutor, you can do as much or little as you want. The amount of time spent will be logged and set against your pre-paid fee. You can top-up whenever you want.
Is it difficult to set up? If you already use Skype, you'll know how easy it is to make a voice or video call. If you're not familiar with Skype, watch the short video below which shows how it's done*.

With a webcam (videoconference style) or without, you can talk/listen to your teacher, exchange and share texts and interactive exercises while speaking, and each of you can read in real time what the other one is writing (text-chat/ whiteboard). This method represents an excellent tool for the teacher to immediately correct any mistakes and for you to improve your written skills along with oral ones.
Our italian lessons are normally completed with written notes and homework which will be accessible through our regular student login area or via Skype.
