There’s a fact traditional training companies don’t like to acknowledge: standard English teaching methodologies don’t deliver results. After all, Italian professionals have been learning English throughout their lives. The business community should therefore be full of people who can communicate effectively — people who are confidently fostering cross-border relationships and using English to drive lucrative deals.

But it’s not. Instead, it’s full of frustrated people who have spent time and money on training — but don’t have English abilities that reflect their expertise or seniority. And that means those cross-border bonds and deals aren’t materializing in the way they want.
