COURSES

My courses are divided into four segments:

BUSINESS ENGLISH COURSES

aimed at developing linguistic competence in the corporate world. During the lessons we will simulate real-world business contexts and we will take it from there to improve our grammar and vocabulary. Into detail:

  • telephone and conference calling, meetings and presentations;
  • E-mail writing;
  • focus on grammar and specific vocabulary;
  • focus on metalinguistic awareness (eye contact, gesture, posture).

We will use a textbook and addtional multimedia learning materials.

FULL-IMMERSION WORKSHOPS

To make sure you take in as much as possible during your learning experience I churned out full-immersion workshops that offer additional hands-on training. The seminars will focus on:

  • Email writing;
  • Telephone and conference calling;
  • Presentations aimed at an international and qualified audience.

The content of the seminars will be tailored according to your needs and will certainly enable you to effectively communicate, answer questions and better perform with a renewed body language.

GENERAL ENGLISH COURSES

My General English courses focus on the four main aspects of language: reading, writing, listening and speaking. You will also learn vocabulary and grammar, and how to speak in formal and informal discussions, interviews and strategies. If you wish to take a more intensive English program please take a look at my Full Immersion Workshops. The lessons are designed to offer additional skills lessons that include meetings, presentations, e-mail writing.

EXAM PRERARATION FOR CAMBRIDGE (PET, KET, CAE, etc.) and IELTS

My exam preparation courses will prepare you for Cambridge exams and the IELTS (International English Language Testing Systems) test. Whether you are applying for an English-speaking job, a university place or a student visa, a Cambridge English exam can help you achieve your academic and professional goals. The IELTS is the ideal test if you need to study or work where English is the language of communication. IELTS scores are recognized by universities and colleges, employers, immigration authorities and professional bodies. British universities and other centers of education generally require IELTS level 6.0 or higher as evidence of language ability.

How I do it

Needs Analysis and Testing

The first things I take care of are your English competence and your learning needs. I will also perform a mid-course review and a final test to appreciate your improvements over the duration of the course. I will refer to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (e.g. A1, B2, etc.).

The Didactic Program

Before starting the course I will draw up a tailored didactic program that outlines the content of the lessons so to maximize your English learning results.

The Participants (Adult Students)

I offer one-to-one and group courses to max 6 participants. This way I will be able to train you with due attention and dedication in a stimulating learning environment.

The Duration of the Courses

You can buy as many hours as you want. Because I am a flexible trainer I am happy to let you try my teaching style by buying 5/10/20/30 hours. You can take it from there and then decide to extend the course and buy extra hours. Every lesson lasts 1,5/2 hours according to your needs, ideally twice a week. The full-immersion seminars may last approximately 4 hours per session during one day. All the lessons will be held at the client’s office.

COACHING

Long-Distance Coaching: The Multi-Channel

Learning English can be frustrating at times. That’s why I want to be close to you whenever you need it the most. I will be happy to follow you via Skype, email and telephone.

The Multi-Channel brings about self-confidence at all times even when we are not studying and performing together in class.

TRANSLATOR

Academic and Specialized translations

I translate from English into Italian and vice versa for a number of private and public customers.

I am a specialized translator in the field of Sociology at an academic level (research papers, PRIN, workshops, etc.), advertising, health and safety documentation, technical catalogs.

Testimonials

  • Martina is a very smart lady. I’ve always been impressed by her outgoing personality and ability to socialize in an effective and respectful way. Also, she always worked hard to get ahead during her B.A. degree. I wish her all the best!

  • Ho avuto il piacere di conoscere Dario durante un corso di inglese da me erogato. Sono rimasto impressionato dalla sua solidissima conoscenza della lingua sia scritta che parlata; non avevo mai incontrato un italofono così competente anche sotto il profilo della lingua parlata nelle sue sfaccettature idiomatiche. Inoltre, la cura dei dettagli e le doti organizzative nei processi di lavoro e di apprendimento sono assimilabili a quelle di un accademico. I taught Dario during a Business English course. I deeply appreciated his spoken and written English skills, which I had never found in any learner of English as a Second Language. He turned out to know idioms which I had forgotten long time ago: really impressive. Moreover, he proved to be as excellent an organizer as the academics I happen to work with.

    Giampietro Gobo
  • A couple of years ago I had the pleasure of being one of Massimo’s student. When I first met Massimo I was unable to understand at first glance whether he was native English or not … he was so fluent I couldn’t believe he was Italian. Besides his professionalism in being a perfect teacher, what I mostly admire is his simplicity, honesty and, above all, his capacity of being sympathetic with people. I hope I have the opportunity to work again with him.

    Michele Lupo
  • I got to know Mr. Massimo Montanari Veracini during one of his stays in England in July 2009 where he worked as a group leader for an Italian company. Apart from his really extraordinary talent in foreign languages, Mr. Montanari Veracini possesses great pedagoical skills as a language teacher. He was able to motivate his students and to encourage them to improve their language skills. Mr. Montanari Veracini was highly appreciated by his students and his colleagues. Mr. Montanari Veracini is a very friendly, creative, energetic, open minded and outgoing person. He is highly knowledegable in a wide range of fields, above all international politics, social and cultural matters and sports. Both as a teacher and a representative of an Austrian travel agency, I wish him all the very best for his future career. If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact me.
