English Inside Out

English for the Digital Age

About Us

So apart from a combined total of 40 years of experience teaching different languages in different nations - adapting to the needs of different cultures and different learning styles, we have various professional qualifications, including:

  • CertTESOL – Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (Trinity College London)
  • Doctorate in Comparative Literature (Italian and French)
  • Laurea in Lingue
  • Cambridge CAE, CPE
  • Mother Tongue/Bilingual English and French

Yes, but what does this really mean?

Well what it means is that we have developed strategies that work for Italians wanting to learn English.

Strategies, based on a recognition that adopting a 100% Anglo Saxon teaching style can be confusing for some people, whereas the Italian methodology can be ineffective for a language that is not Italian, for example the tendency to translate between languages, which defeats the purpose of the learning process and kills confidence.

Where are we?

Our Language Centre currently serves the area of North West Rome - Olgiata, La Storta, Formello, Cesano, La Giustiniana and around. For details see our Contacts page.
