Italian 1-to-1 General

These Italian lessons are more general in nature and are targeted at students with a whole range of different needs. While all beginners level students can expect to cover Survival Italian - required for short visits to a country where English may not be spoken and/or the intention is to make good contacts with the local population, students then generally progress in different directions depending on their needs. Typical students include those buying property overseas, spouses of overseas nationals, people about to set off on that long-awaited world trip, Italian culture enthusiasts and those who are keen to pass a particular Italian examination.


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.

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).
