Private language schools in Italy

When looking for jobs in a specific city or region in Italy start your search with the Italian yellow pages or pagine gialle.
Where it reads, Cosa: type: scuole di lingue
Where it reads, Dove: type: city or region (e.g., Florence or Tuscany OR Genova or Liguria)

Print out the listing and visit each school in the city or region that interests you. Bring your CV/resume with you and ask the director if they are hiring English teachers. Italians prefer face to face contact and presenting yourself to each school, in person, will work much better than sending your CV by email or snail mail.

“I just wanted to thank you again for the brilliant course. The thing I appreciated the most from this course was its structure. When I read the schedule I felt like I might have been a bit overwhelmed by the big deal of different topics we were going to discuss. Especially since this one was the first teacher training course I had ever followed. But it was logically structured and that made it very easy to be followed through. Touching upon so many issues was also very useful as it made me understand where both my strenght and weakness might be found as a teacher. The creation of the portfolio was the ultimate, good idea for someone like me who has had only 2 months of teaching experience up to now. - Silvia ”
