Fees and Courses
Viva offers a variety of study options in all levels, from beginner to advanced, and all forms from private tutoring to group lessons. Prices vary based on the course’s length and size.
Private lessons usually have 2 hours of duration. We also offer shorter lessons for those students who lack time and availability!
Group Lessons last for 10 weeks and have 2 hours of duration each. If you are still keen on a one-on-one lesson and would like to save, then our pair lesson option (DUPLA) will allow you to share a lesson with another student on the same level as you getting more attention from your tutor.
Private lessons are entirely focused on your particular needs, even though most of the students are good at learning the language, they each have their own weaknesses to work. Our goal is to ensure you get value out of each session and recognise your improvements through progress checks, so you are always motivated!
You may be searching for a quick solution due to an upcoming trip, business opportunity, or even to get closer to their friends or partner's family. See below some of the programs offered by Viva Private. If you have any further inquiries, please feel free to contact us!
