MY FIRST BOSS didn't speak great Italian but when we held open evenings in Milan for learners to come along and find out more about our courses, he was always as cool as a cucumber when he presented to them. I realised that this was for two reasons. 1 he had overcome the fear of looking silly in front of other people and had accepted that his level of Italian was good enough to transmit his message even if it wasn't perfect. 2 he practised his presentation to the potential students over and over again to help him feel more confident and comfortable. The result? He sold plenty of courses! If you do these two things, you're sure to succeed and be as cool as a cucumber too.

Hot day water play 💦 makes for lots of fun, a good way to cool off and a great sensory activity plus learning about pouring and filling and talking about how it feeds and looks. 💙 (the lower neighbours may have been annoyed when the bucket was spilled, he was outside 🙈
HERE'S ANOTHER TESTIMONIAL FROM SUSANA "The classes in the morning and afternoon went very quickly due to the very dynamic rhythm and the excellent preparation of the topics. It was a luxury to have a teacher for myself, who was correcting every mistake I made, not only in every single conversation but also written." Our personalised language coaching course is focused specifically on the needs of the learner. You need to make presentations in your job? No problem, we'll work on your delivery, the effectiveness of your slides, your body language etc. Feel you need to write better written communications, being more concise and accurate? We'll work on that too. Whatever you need, we will build a course around your requirements so you can feel a real improvement by the end of the week.
#WednesdayWisdom We make #mistakes every day, large and small, failures and faux pas. But failure and mistakes still don’t feel like an awesome #learningopportunity. But our mistakes and failures are gifts, gems, guideposts in our learning and growth as people. So #embrace failures, mistakes, screw ups and shortcomings because they not only make us uniquely who we are, but also teach us #powerfullessons.
We have to be willing to accept that we cannot change what has happened in the past and use it as a learning and growing opportunity. What we can do is be open to using those moments of disappointment and revelations to grow and move forward. . . Be bold in moving forward! #momentsofdelight#win#tomorrow
Mireia did a #full-immersion English course with us for a week. Here is what she has to say about it. "The experience was incredible!! From the first moment we only spoke in English and after a few hours I was also thinking in English. The best was that it happened in a natural way and I could feel comfortable." As Mireia says, one of the greatest advantages of doing a full-immersion course is that you will feel your #self-confidence increase so you really feel comfortable speaking a foreign language.
