OUR APPROACH

Blending digital learning with face-to-face training

Divider
Combining proprietary research with extensive expertise in the psychology of learning, our language training programs are proven to help professionals communicate efficiently and effectively in English.

Our cutting-edge digital learning platform has been developed over 8 years and with €500,000 of investment. And as part of our blended approach to learning, AI-driven tools complement face-to-face sessions with qualified native English speakers.

From interactive workshops to lessons with multiple teachers, we’re committed to an array of inspirational techniques that inspire, empower and motivate – giving you confidence to use English in your everyday working life.
Check
Individualized approach - the blend of methods and activities guarantees well-rounded language acquisition, challenging and engaging you
Check
Flexible, personalized approach - our trainers are not restricted to conventional learning styles or pre-written texts, so you’re continually building capabilities that help you work more efficiently and effectively
Check
Flipped learning model, which means there’s no homework - instead, you prepare for face-to-face lessons using the interactive tools on our digital platform at a convenient time and place
Check
Flexible scheduling - you have face-to-face lessons at your office, or via video chat or phone to suit your busy schedule

Stop the grammar fixation

Divider
Studying on its own won’t make you a better English speaker – yet all too often language training courses focus heavily on theory and grammar, meaning you can read English but can’t use it in real-life business scenarios.

We take the opposite approach. Bridging the gap between learning and applying English, everything about the way we work is designed to ensure you communicate with confidence.

Our trainers help you with writing emails, reviewing documents, giving presentations and participating in conference calls – in other words, the practical things that you need to do every day at work.
Check
Focus on learning through doing and experiencing - our programs are so successful because they focus on real-world scenarios to deliver measurable improvements in your English
Check
Linking language to culture - your sessions are conducted by different trainers (all native English speakers), so you’re exposed to a range of backgrounds and develop an understanding of cultural nuances
Check
Business, cultural and social experiences - we incorporate projects with multinational companies and informal business events into your learning journey. This increases confidence and improves your ability to use English in a real business context

Measure success as you progress

Divider
Are you negotiating with a mother-tongue speaker? Participating in conference calls? Giving presentations? Drafting emails?

We delve into your true business goals, so we can home in on where you need to communicate more effectively in English. Then we structure your program to help you achieve those goals – and guarantee success.
Check
Evidence-based course design - we’ve been delivering English language programs for over 8 years, analyzing data from thousands of students to optimize our methodology. From the length of our courses to our use of AI and digital learning, we fine-tune everything to ensure you experience sustainable improvement
Check
Data-driven benchmarking - our focus on business and finance professionals means we have a wealth of data to benchmark progress. For example, it takes a mother-tongue English speaker 2 minutes to draft a paragraph in an email, while a student at CEF Level 1 takes 24 minutes to perform the same task
Check
Real-time progress tracking - at every stage of your program, you can check your progress on our sophisticated digital platform

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.

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.
