Leaving Cert. Grinds

 

We are well aware of the importance of this exam preparation and we aim to provide a friendly learning environment where students can learn at their pace and classes are structured to meet their specific needs. Our fully qualified native teachers will take care of your preparation offering grinds in small groups for 5th and 6th-year students. Classes are limited to a maximum of 7 students. Private courses can be arranged with a minimum of 4 students.

We believe it is crucial that our classes have students of the same level of Italian. This is why a free of charge assessment test is required before the enrollment.
