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 have studied for four years for a bachelor in education before entering your course. I was hoping to learn a little extra, but instead, I learned more practical skills than I have learned in four years of training and teaching internships! I also noted that you covered most of the subjects we did, but the difference is that your input was more practical oriented rather than the silly academic approach. Sheila, you did a wonderful job and your preparation is definitely paying off. Thanks! With compliments, Pim ”

“My teacher trainer was very helpful and always included a personal message and notes/comments about my assignment submissions so that I would know when I was on track and what mistakes I needed to correct. Thank you so much for your help throughout this course! - Kristen”
