E’ dalla caparbietà, dalla tenacia e dal giusto punto di follia di Ian che nasce, nel 4 ottobre 2016, Language Consultants Srls.

Dopo 20 anni di esperienza per le più importanti scuole di lingue di Milano, Ian decide che è arrivato il momento giusto per iniziare la sua nuova avventura. La sua nuova Scuola di lingue, già nel nome, Language Consultants, è un riconoscimento della professionalità di tutti i colleghi collaboratori che durante il corso degli anni hanno lavorato attivamente al suo fianco.

Il desiderio di mantenere standard qualitativi sempre elevati, per il contenuto delle proposte formative, per la professionalità e la competenza dei docenti, per l’attenzione alle persone e ai loro reali bisogni, fa sì che oggi Language Consultants sia una scuola di lingue riconosciuta da importanti aziende e dalle tante scuole pubbliche in cui opera.

“I would like to present the project and the company I represent, with the objective of helping you better understand the reason and the determination with which I have decided to undertake the start-up of a new language school with a long history in language teaching.

Language Consultants Srls, situated in Milan, Italy, was started in 2016 due to the sudden closure, after the acquisition by the Inspired Group, of Milan’s historical language school Oxford Institutes Italiani founded in 1957 and part of the International School of Europe Group.

For almost 20 years I actively worked for Oxford Group as Head of Studies and person in charge of the Quality management systems ISO 9001. I have personally been active as a private language consultant since 1990.

I have always been motivated by the passion to teach and diffuse my knowledge of the English language to students of all ages and backgrounds.

Pushed by my desire to continue my work, the work I love and enjoy, I decided to involve my closest colleagues and collaborators, many of whom have spent their entire career with us, in our new adventure Language Consultants, sure to be availing myself of a team of serious, passionate teachers that has accompanied and helped us distinguish our work over the years. We have around 40 active language teachers in Italy.

As Head of Studies from the year 2000 to today I have been the person of reference for the language training courses in company and in state schools while my business partner Paola Pantaleo, from 2004, has followed us in all organizational and administrative aspects.

Every year, we manage all kinds of language course:

Our principal languages are Italian for foreigners and English as a second language, however, we run courses in many other languages for adults, children and business people.

For children we run courses in private and state run kindergartens, primary schools, middle schools and high schools as well as exam preparation for ages and summer camps. For state school teachers we run both language courses and teacher training course inline with the Italian MIUR (Ministry of Education) guidelines with validated training credits.

Our specialized courses are intensive training programmes created for those who already have a good knowledge of the language and wish to examine specific themes in order to handle “social” situations such as business discussions, meetings, negotiations with foreign customers, telephone conversations, e-mails, company presentations and to speak effectively and confidently in public.

In light of what was said above Language Consultants was born, with the knowledge of years of experience and a full portfolio of clients that has trusted us to continue in our work.

We are, therefore, convinced that you will agree to put your faith in us and our new business venture.

My warmest regards.”
