If you have tons of free time and motivation for homework, and you find that you have tons of questions all the time, maybe having class twice a week works for you.
If you are raising thirteen kids, working 60 hour work-weeks, and secretly moonlight as a vigilante superhero at night, you might prefer having class only every other week. Or just whenever you find that you have an opening in your schedule.
Most people try to have class around once a week.
If you're an independent learner on a budget, the self-study course might be best for you.
If you'd like more hands-on expert guidance and don't mind paying for the expertise, private classes are your best bet.
If you want to focus on improving your speaking abilities and like learning with a small, tight-knit group, the speaking course will be your jam.
It can take as little as a day to be able to order at a café, if you’re Danish and have a good instructor. It will take multiple lifetimes to be able to write a doctoral thesis, if you’re Vietnamese and never read or listen to any Icelandic.
As a rule of thumb, though, it takes about 1-2 years to reach equal footing with natives for day-to-day communication, assuming you’re immersed in the language on a daily basis.
