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

These Italian Lessons are intended for people who really need to learn Italian to help make that difference in their work. For beginners, it will be useful to learn greetings and basic business etiquette, at higher levels reading and then writing become more important. Typical students include those involved in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, jobseekers in multinational companies where an additional language is required, and those working with international colleagues, academia and government. Even on our most basic lesson for Beginners, students should expect to end the lesson with basic Telephone Italian and e-mail Italian skills for communications as well as Survival Italian required for short visits to a country.

Italian Closed Group Lessons

2 or more people can benefit studying Italian together as these Italian lessons are also offered to groups (Two-to-One Italian Lesson or Small Group In-Company Italian Lesson). Every student must have the same degree of knowledge of the language, the same business or language needs and the ability to study at the same time and place as everybody else. The booking has to be made for all students at the same time. Listen & Learn do not advocate group sessions of more than 6-8 people, though Taster Italian Lessons can be experienced by up to 12 people.
