1:1 and Group Italian Courses in Milton Keynes

Our Italian courses are usually offered by our clients as 1:1 training for their employees. Group sessions, however, are also available and can be excellent value for money. Planning is required so that participants all meet at the same time each week, and we recommend that numbers are kept to 6 or less. 1:1 Italian lessons at Milton Keynes mean that you will have your individual needs, weaknesses and strengths catered for, so that your progress is quicker.

Italian Course Management

A multi-lingual Account Manager with extensive experience is responsible for each SIMON & SIMON Italian language course. A profile on your trainer, Course Plan and course materials will be sent to you when you start your Italian course. After every 40 hours of training you will receive a Progress Report. We will also send you Breaking the Language Barrier, our quarterly newsletter, which contains a wonderful prize draw and valuable language learning resource weblinks.

Italian Course Locations & Schedules

SIMON & SIMON has arranged Italian language courses for clients in numerous locations, and with our global network of language trainers we can organise a Italian language course for you wherever you are – in almost any major city in the UK, Europe and beyond. The vast majority of our Italian lessons take place at our clients’ offices, removing the need for you to travel, but Italian lessons can take place in your home if that is more convenient. We can also arrange full-time residential Italian language courses for you – just contact our office for information on available destinations.

Milton Keynes Italian Course Schedules

The Italian language courses in Milton Keynes that we run go on through the year. Each week, most of our students will attend at least one of our 90-minute lessons, but many will do more. We can also arrange Weekend Courses for you. Italian courses run from Monday to Friday, any time from 8am to 6pm. Intensive Italian language courses can be arranged in residential centres abroad or in the UK, or on clients’ premises for 30 hours per week, 6 hours a day Monday to Friday.

Italian Course Content

Before you start your Italian language course we will assess your level of Italian and speak to you about your aims so that your Italian language course can be customised for you. You may have never been exposed to Italian before and wish to develop basic survival skills, or you may have some experience and wish to be able to speak more fluently in Italian when discussing business. You may want to further your ability to use Italian in negotiations and meetings or better your comprehension and pronunciation abilities. Whatever goals you may have, our experienced Italian language trainers will tailor your Italian course so that your goals can be quickly met.

Italian Language Examination Courses

We are happy to help in your preparation for any Italian examinations. Our students have a 95% pass rate and we think that their success shows the value of our policy of working with above-average experienced Italian teachers in Milton Keynes. Issuing of results certificates, registration for Italian examinations and administration of such exams is also provided by SIMON & SIMON.

About Italian

Italian is a Romance language spoken as a native language by about 70 million people in Italy, Malta, San Marino and parts of Switzerland, Croatia, Slovenia and France. Many native speakers are native bilinguals of both standardised Italian and regional varieties. Italian derives diachronically from Latin and is the closest national language to Latin. Unlike most other Romance languages, Italian retains Latin’s contrast between short and long consonants. As in most Romance languages, stress is distinctive. In particular, among the Romance languages, Italian is the closest to Latin in terms of vocabulary. Lexical similarity is 89% with French, 87% with Sardinian, 85% with Catalan, 82% with Spanish, 78% with Rhaeto-Romance and 77% with Romanian.

About Milton Keynes

Milton Keynes is a large town in Buckinghamshire, in the south east of England, about 49 miles (79 km) north-west of London. It is also the administrative centre of the Borough of Milton Keynes. It was formally designated as a new town on 23 January 1967, with the design brief to become a ‘city’ in scale. Its 89 km2 (34 sq mi) area incorporated the existing towns of Bletchley, Wolverton and Stony Stratford along with another fifteen villages and farmland in between. It took its name from the existing village of Milton Keynes, a few miles east of the planned centre. At the 2001 census the population of the Milton Keynes urban area, including the adjacent Newport Pagnell, was 184,506, and that of the wider borough, which has been a unitary authority independent of Buckinghamshire County Council since 1997, was 207,063 (compared with a population of around 53,000 for the same area in 1961). The Borough’s population is currently estimated to be over 230,000.

Assess Your Italian Level

The table below is based on recognised language levels used by various academic institutions across the European Union. A highly motivated student attending weekly sessions with their Italian language trainer in Milton Keynes can expect to move from one level to another after 50 hours providing they also commit to a similar number of hours of self-study.

Of course, some people find learning languages easier than others, and some students will have more opportunities to practise Italian in the course of their work and leisure, so these factors also need to be considered when trying to assess how long it will take to move from one level to another.
