MEET THE LANGUAGE GRID TEAM
Divider

From management to trainers and admin staff, everyone at The Language Grid is committed to freeing you from the frustrations normally associated with learning English.

Divider
Your first contact is with the management team. We delve into your business goals and structure your program to help you achieve them.

Because language is intrinsically linked to culture, you work with different trainers over your course. This exposes you to a range of backgrounds, from English and Irish to American and Australian. You therefore develop an understanding of the cultural nuances you experience in a business context.

Over the last 8 years, many Deloitte professionals have attended TLG courses, and our business with foreign companies has more than tripled. TLG is not only a partner, TLG is part of the Deloitte value chain.

Alessandro Mercuri

Equity Partner, Deloitte Consulting Italy
TLG is not about ‘learning a language.’ It’s about effective communication: adopting Anglo-Saxon culture, style and behavior. It’s a real-life experience. Our meetings are about my transition as an Italian English speaker to a more natural English communicator. Courses are not focused on the academic level of our staff, but on the real everyday needs of our people, depending on the level of international exposure within the organisation.

Antonio Solinas

Function Leader of Financial Advisory, Deloitte Italy
TLG is always professional, reliable and precise. Absolute flexibility in terms of lesson scheduling is a huge plus. I appreciate that courses are always tailored to the skills, level and ability of every student: TLG continues to involve both junior and senior staff with the same passion and dedication. This approach makes learning not only possible, but also enjoyable.

Partner, Triberti, Colombo and Associati
TLG is one of the best English schools in Milan. The organization of the lessons is compatible with the working day, meaning that you can do your lesson from your office, during your work time. The trainers help you with the real problems you experience every day in your work, for example writing emails, reviewing documents and discussing business matters in English. I've had a lot of English lessons in my life, but I've seen the most improvement while being on TLG's program.

Fabio Petti

Head of Risk Appetite and Credit Strategies, UniCredit
In my opinion, there are two kinds of English schools. Those which teach you English, and those which truly make you learn English. The Language Grid is definitely one of the very few English schools which belong to the second category. Extremely skilled teachers, passionate about their job. Programs totally focused and designed, to suit each student. Attention to every detail. Timely feedback on the student’s performance. The Language Grid... IS THE English school!

Riccardo Motta

Financial Services Leader and Partner, Deloitte
Throughout my time working with The Language Grid, my trainers have supported me in becoming a more effective English speaker. In particular, TLG's digital approach has allowed me to take my English language learning to the next level, with my trainer, course materials, and resources always available and at my fingertips, no matter where I am. I continue to be impressed by TLG’s commitment to innovation and, above all, to their students.
