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.

“First of all, thank you for such an enjoyable learning experience. It was a very intense weekend but it was worth it. They told me that I would have fun and that I would learn a lot of new things but I never would have imagined I'd have that much fun while learning something. So thank you for your useful handouts, your priceless pieces of advice, and especially for being so kind to me. Thank you for this amazing experience in Florence. - Martina”
