INDIVIDUAL LEARNING

Običaj darivanja licitara, kojim mladić djevojci iskazuje svoju privrženost i ljubav, duboko je ukorijenjen u hrvatskoj kulturi , jednako kao i ukrašavanje božićnog drvca sitnim licitarima.

Begin your Croatian learning journey with one-to-one sessions and receive many benefits to your language learning experience: 

  • undivided, individual attention that guarantees faster progress
  • learning takes place in low-pressure setting without  performance anxiety and peer comparison 
  • receive better and more personalized feedback
  • fewer time constraints: more time for questions and for a deeper dive into the multilayered mechanics of the language
  • lessons are tailored to your individual needs and goals; according to studies (1983, Krashen), students acquire language best through the modified input of the teacher
  • flexibility: change your lesson time or number of lessons you have per week
  • better value-for-money: individual tutoring can accelerate your learning 
  • you contribute more to the lessons 

FAQ

How much does it cost?

1:1 Online Croatian Language Lessons are charged at £35. I offer discounts if a bulk amount of sessions is booked. In addition, I offer special discounts for small group learning for families and couples.

Who is this for?

For everyone who wants or needs help learning their target language! We have extensive experience with people of all ages and abilities: children, teenagers, adults and mature learners. Each of these groups requires a different approach to learning and lesson delivery, all in order to draw on their strengths.

Can I book only one lesson?

We require a minimum of 6 sessions to be booked in order to receive 1-2-1 tutoring. Because the aim of individual learning is a tailored approach that caters to individual needs and goals, tutoring requires careful planning and a lot of tutor’s time and investment before the actual delivery of the lesson. We create a learning journey for all our students which serves as a guideline for progress over time.

Essentially, when you take on 1-2-1 lessons, you are enrolled on a course. It is for those reasons that we set these requirement.

Additionally, if you are an advanced learner and require a few lessons on a subject that you happen to be struggling with (e.g. SER vs. ESTAR), paying as you go is an option, too.

All our potential students get a 30 minutes FREE session during which we will assess your language level and we can discuss your goals.

How can I access my lessons?

We use the Zoom platform to deliver our lessons. Once you book lessons with us, you will receive a link to a Zoom video meeting. 

When can I have my lessons? What if there's a time difference?

Flexibility is part of our service, and we will try our best to cater to your needs. In case that your desired time slot has already been taken, we can try to find the next best time, however, we have a lot of clients and we work on a first-come-first-serve basis thus we cannot guarantee that you will get the preferred time slot.

Additionally, we welcome students all over the world and have worked with time difference before! 

How long does a lesson last?

We follow the standard academic hour of 50 minutes. If you prefer to have a full 60 minutes hour, that can be arranged at a slightly higher price. Some of our adult learners prefer to book two hours (90 minutes) per session, however, we would advise against that for younger learners and children to avoid cognitive overload.

How often can I have lessons?

As often as you would like and depending on how fast you want to progress.

For beginners (A1-B1), we would recommend twice per week in a spaced out format (e.g. on Mondays and Wednesdays, or Tuesdays and Fridays), or a bulk of two lessons in one session (90 minutes weekly).

We require  a minimum of one session per week because language learning demands consistency, scaffolding and progressive overload. The longer the pause between lessons, the more time we have to take to revise previous topics, leaving you unable to progress at an optimal pace.

Can I reschedule last minute?

We require a 24 hours cancellation notice in order to reschedule. We completely understand that sometimes life happens and students need to cancel last minute but at that point, the tutor’s time has already been lost, including the time spent preparing for the lesson.

What happens if I cannot attend?

If you give a 24 hours notice, we will reschedule the lesson. Otherwise, you will lose the fee.

SMALL GROUP LEARNING

Baba Jaga, Baba Roga, Ježi-babo ili Baba Zima u slavenskoj mitologiji vještica je, čarobnica ili šumski duh.

Want to take a language course with your significant other? Perhaps you want to travel with your friends? Or engage in a family learning activity on Saturdays? Maybe you just enjoy interacting in a class with other students? 

If you enjoy developing a group dynamic, starting discussion with people within a learning environment, and learning from others’ conclusions and mistakes, then a Portuguese group class format is for you!

In an over a decade of private tutoring, we have tutored couples, families and groups of friends, as well as to groups of complete strangers. I have observed language learning bring out a healthy and fun competitiveness between siblings, bring couples closer, allow friends to travel across the world, and I have seen complete strangers become friends through a shared love for language. 

All you need is an Internet connection to access Zoom, a camera, a microphoneand you are all set.
