Workplace Italian

Learn Italian, do business better!


Are you a professional working with Italian clients and colleagues? Do you want to take your business to the next level?

You came to the right place!

As you progress in your career, you are starting to interact with your Italian customers or colleagues more often. You know that to be respected and recognised as a leader in your field you need to establish a closer relationship with them. To do so, you communicate in English, but you feel that something is missing.

While it helps you to get through the most basic tasks, you understand that English cannot give you the level of deep connection with your Italian counterpart you are looking for.

⚠️Robert, the Polish country manager of a multinational Italian company had a similar problem. He was responsible for the company in the Polish market and he was proud of the results they achieved.


💭But Robert had a dream. He wanted to convince the Italian members of the board to open a new production plant in Poland. He knew that he would get a chance if he managed to build a stronger relation with his colleagues. But how to do it?

One day, a famous quote attributed to Nelson Mandela came to his mind:

“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart”.

This was the answer Robert was looking for: if he wanted to persuade his colleagues he had to speak to their heart!❤️ To do so, he thought of using the Italian language to establish a deeper connection with them.


Then, he contacted me to improve his Italian. Together, we worked on mastering his communication skills, with a 1:1 programme based on what he really needed to take his Italian to the next level.

Results came soon: after a few months, the management is now considering his proposal and they have started negotiations to open a new production plant.


Based on this experience, in 2021 I created the Workplace Italian coaching programme, to help other 50 executives from global companies such as Mapei, Honeywell, Raben and De'Longhi to talk to the heart of their Italian customers and colleagues!📈

I started classes with Simo in December 2019 and I still continue today. Simo is a professional teacher with a very positive approach to sharing knowledge. You will learn Italian, get to know Italian
culture and customs better and laugh every time. Currently I am able to speak with my colleagues in Milan and
communicate "correctly" during my holidays in Italy. I absolutely recommend learning with Simo!

I have had lessons with Simo for a year. From this moment on I have seen great progress in my Italian. Lessons are well organized and very interesting. Simone is a professional coach, I am very satisfied with our lessons and I highly recommend learning with Simo!


Kristen Lemma
Senior Grants Specialist at NYU Langone Health

I came to Simone with 10 year old rusty Italian knowledge from my two years taking it at University and half a year of Babbel. I have learned more in a little over a month with Simone’s style of language learning then I have with years of study. Simone’s dedication to the field, provides high quality lessons that engage, immerse, and have proven results. I highly recommend Simone to anyone interested in a personal approach to learning Italian at all levels.

I wanted the classes to be interesting and conducted in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, and this is exactly what the classes with Simone are like. He infects you with optimism and makes learning a pleasure! Grazie Simone!

💭Now, you are at the point of a decision. You can either continue the path you have already been travelling, or you can choose the road less travelled. The first option will probably result in you getting the same outcomes you’ve always received.


But if you want something different to happen, if you want to change the direction of your career you’re going to have to do something different. Make a new choice, and pursue a new outcome!🚀
