Flexible
We design and deliver all our programs with the individual in mind, incorporating a blend of methods and activities to guarantee well-rounded language acquisition and keep students motivated and engaged.

Our story

Divider
Learner frustrations. Ineffective training solutions. Poor outcomes.

Too often, these are the results of English training. Despite years of study, students still aren’t confident using English to communicate in an everyday business context – whether it’s on a conference call, making a presentation or during negotiations.

With her background in cross-border banking, the solution was clear to Zoe Flaherty. She created The Language Grid to deliver a different approach to English language training for business and finance professionals – one that incorporates the best in digital learning and face-to-face instruction.

8 years later, our English language programs are renowned for their focus on real-life business scenarios and practical skills. We’ve worked with leading companies in Italy, such as Deloitte, KPMG, UniCredit, SEA Milano and Ferrovie dello Stato – delivering measurable results and ending the frustration and boredom often associated with learning English.
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.

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.

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!

I continue to be impressed by TLG’s commitment to innovation and, above all, to their students.
