Italian Lessons in Coquitlam

Our Italian speakers, fully qualified to teach their native tongue, can train you and, if need be, the rest of your group at a time that is suitable to you, at your home or place of work. Sessions can take place on the day of your choosing - even weekends - and at the time you want: whether it be morning, afternoon or evening. If circumstances arise where your home or office is not convenient, the classes can be held at your trainer's office. Resources for the lesson are provided for you.


Italian 1-to-1 General

This set of Italian tutorials are less specific and more targeted at those who want to get a range of different things from learning Italian. Even though all novice students will cover survival Italian: enough Italian to make a visit to the country or make good contacts with the locals, but what do you do from there? It depends on your needs. Those who have benefitted from these lessons have been those moving or investing overseas, spouses of overseas nationals, people who love to travel all over the world, those interested in Italian culture, and those who just want to pass a specific examination in Italian.


Italian 1-to-1 Business

Those who would benefit the most from these Italian tutorials are those who feel they need to learn Italian to help them out in their business lives. For starters, learning salutations and business etiquette is integral; once these have been practiced then reading and writing lessons can start. Typical studiers have been those involved in international import/export, negotiations and acquisitions, those in multinational companies requiring another language, and those working in any way with international governments and relevant administration. Just our simplest lesson for beginners will have students finishing the lessons with basic telephone and e-mail Italian, as well as survival Italian should a visit to the country be necessary.


These are completely free and will take no more than 15 minutes

Italian Closed Group Lessons

If there are 2 or more of you with the same level of Italian, the same targets within the language, and be able to study at the same time and location, then you'll be happy to know that these Italian lessons can also be made available for Two-to-One Italian Lessons or Small Group In-Company Italian Lessons. Listen & Learn do not generally recommend classes of more than 6-8 people, although Taster lessons in Italian can run with up to 12 people. Bookings must be made for all participants at the same time.
