Group Classes or Private language lessons?
There is no rule regarding which are better, group lessons or private language lessons. For some students, a private lesson is better, and for other students, a group setting may work better. It also depends on what is being taught, what the students are expected to do, and if the student actually wants to learn. We hope the points below will help you a sound decision.
Advantage of Group Classes
Group interaction helps to improve a student’s spoken language.
Classmates in the group are able to support each other.
Disadvantages of Group Classes
More commitment is needed because it is very easy to slack off in a group setting.
The lessons may be too slow for those that excel and too fast for those that struggle.
The student has to work their schedule around getting to class at the right time.
Just one disruptive element may slow the progress of all in the class.
Advantage of Private Lessons
People usually learn faster with private lessons.
Adaptive teaching is far easier when a student is one-on-one with an instructor.
Private lessons allow a student and teacher to concentrate on the student’s goals.
Disadvantages of Private Lessons
Private lessons can be a bigger investment.
Staying focused for the duration of a lesson can feel difficult.
Instructors and students with conflicting personalities may struggle. It's important to find the right teacher.
Summary of comparison
Group language lessons have worked for years in schools where many of the students are forced on one topic. It consists of having one instructor teaching a group of 10 to 30 students, which means the teacher's attention is shared amongst all the students. As the saying goes, "you only learn as fast as the slowest student in the classroom", so if you're a motivated learner with the desire to learn fast, group language lessons may be a frustrating experience.
On the other hand, students can benefit by interacting and learning from each other in a group setting. It helps build confidence with the language as they see other people both excel and struggle. When classmates struggle with the language, it can make others feel better because they see how being “wrong” is nothing to be embarrassed about. Learning and acquiring a language is a process, not a race.
There are many benefits to private language lessons, and the main one is that you're getting the full attention of a teacher, who can understand the student's needs, proficiency, and goals. Whether you're a motivated student or not, having a private language teacher will help you learn significantly faster.
Which Should You Choose?
There's no right or wrong answer. It comes down to what's important for you and self-awareness on how you best learn. If you're a self-motivated learner who thrives in group settings and being around others, then group lessons could be an option to consider. If you have a busy schedule and want the full accountability of having a private instructor, then private language lessons are best.
