Although we do offer and love teaching group lessons (in Italian, French and Spanish), we also realize that one-on-one lessons work best for many. Not only can the personalized attention and ample speaking time guarantee progress towards your goals, but individual lessons can also be scheduled at a time and on the days that work best with your busy schedule. Speak! can create an individual course to match with your particular needs, whether they be professional (i.e. Health Care Spanish, ESL for business or academic purposes, leading study abroad programs) or personal (travel, personal enrichment/satisfaction/fun).
Once you fill out a registration form, we get to work finding an instructor who can best match your needs and your schedule. Turn-around can be as quick as 24 hours, but usually not longer than one week. How’s that for tailored service?
For University of Virginia full-time employees (and postdocs), we have created a special 37 hour course, which you can complete in 3-12 months. Other options are also available (from 5-20 hours). Education benefits ($2,000 per year, every year) are accepted at Speak! from all full-time employees in the College of Arts and Sciences as well as the Medical Center and just about any school or program at UVA. If you don’t work at UVA, perhaps your employer will offer tuition reimbursement – it never hurts to ask!
To register for one on one lessons, just go to the page of the language you wish to learn (i.e. English, Italian) and click on the 1-on-1 course option. For further questions, please contact Liz Launer at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at (434) 245-8255.
