Is the best Spanish language school able to provide both private and group instruction? Both have pros and disadvantages. As a newbie, you'll find lots of group classes at your level for a lower rate. Group lessons are a great opportunity to meet other students and form lifetime connections. They are also less rigorous than one-on-one sessions, which may be exhausting over the course of many hours. If you pick group classes, inquire about the maximum number of people in a class; the fewer the students, the better.
