About our clients

Our clients do business in many sectors including banking, insurance, pharmaceuticals, industry, fashion, entertainment and food and beverage.
The majority of our courses are Business English courses: the focus being on providing our students with the language tools and skills necessary to communicate effectively and efficiently with their counterparts and customers around the world.

About our courses

Teachers will encounter both group courses (max 6 students) and individual courses (normally management).
Levels range from Beginner to Advanced.
Lessons are on a once or twice a week basis. Lesson length is anything from 1 hour to 4 hours in the case of semi intensive courses. Course length: from 20 to 60 hours.
A typical working week consists of approximately 25 contact hours. Lessons usually start at 9 am and finish at 7 pm from Monday to Friday. Lessons mostly take place at the client company’s premises.

Getting around

Public transport in Milan is cheap, well organized extensive and easy to use. Most of our teachers use public transport to get to and from their lessons.

Holidays

The month of August is traditionally when Italians take their holidays. A teacher can therefore expect to do a reduced amount of hours in this month. In fact most of our teachers book their holidays to coincide with those of their students in this period.
