Language Classes or Private Language Lessons?

A potential client ask me why the prices are so expensive, while students can take for example the IELTS exams at a cheaper price?

You can’t compare private tuition to classical language classes OR exams, tests like IELTS….

They are all different processes, with different learning methods, different purposes.

There is no set or standard rule regarding which are better, language classes or private language lessons. For some students, a private lesson may be better, and for other students a group setting may work. It also depends on what is being taught, what the students are expected to do, and if the student actually wants to learn:


Private tuition is more for people motivated to learn, improve their language with a more customized language learning method. The teacher can adapt the courses for each student. In language classes you have a method for everyone , and you need to stick with it. Some people need / prefer personalization of their courses, as they have their preferred learning method ( visual, hearing, music, conversation…)They need a customized learning approach to improve the language faster, better.

It is good sometimes to try both: a few clients who took language classes first can decide afterwards to switch to a private tuition for different reasons.

Whatever the option you choose, learning a language can be a FUN experience and be very useful ( travel, job…) So let’s learn languages .
