Specialist individual courses
Do you need something very specific?
Many of us have very specific needs when it comes to language learning. These needs are often related to our work or life situations.
Our specialist courses are designed to provide you with the necessary language skills required for specific professional contexts. Whether you are looking to improve your English, Italian, or Czech for business, medicine, law, engineering, or any other field, we will help you achieve your goals.
Together with you, we will identify your specific needs and tailor the course content accordingly.
English for specific purposes (ESP) and specialist Czech
Throughout my career, I have worked with students from a wide range of professions, requiring very specific language instruction. I have created and taught courses for:
oil and gas industry (management of a gas storage facility, preparation for international conferences, etc.)
public speaking course (working on presentations skills, gaining confidence, engagement with the audience, visuals, etc.)
job interview preparation (helping students prepare for interviews for management positions at Amazon, Stellantis, etc.)
preparation for a "concorso dirigente scolastico" (discussing education systems in EU countries, talking about education reforms, etc.)
courses for English teachers (helping teachers with English and teaching methodology)
Italian for specific purposes
In my years of teaching Italian as a foreign language, I have helped students from all around the world from Canada to Australia. Many of them have moved to Italy for family reasons and having a good level of Italian and specific language skills related to their professions has been essential for them to succeed on the Italian job market.
I have worked with students:
working in physiotherapy (vocabulary related to body parts, body movement, procedures, etc.)
working in psychology and therapy (talking about feelings, various question types, etc.)
preparing to move to Italy (survival Italian phrases, dealing with offices, etc.)
coming from abroad to study at Italian schools (school language and culture, Italian school environment, etc.)
working in the theatre business (discussing drama pieces, on stage events, etc,)

Online diagnostic test
Let's take advantage of the online tools we have so you can complete a language diagnostic test in the comfort of your home or office. After that we schedule a video call.
During the call, we have a chat about your job, what you like doing in your free time and also ask some more challenging and abstract questions to fully understand your level of the language you want to learn.
Once we fully understand your level, we're going to talk about your language needs - what you need to improve and why, your motivation, your availability, etc.
Finally, we suggest your learning path, materials to work with, the frequency of your lessons, etc. Then it's up to you to take the first step. We're here to guide you!
