Mads Tailor teaches English for our Internship Progamme. With a background in accountancy and finance, she decided to combine her career with teaching and qualified as a Celta teacher in 2006. We asked her how a week of tailored English classes prepares students for work experience, boosting their confidence. Singing, apparently, is one way to overcome first day nerves.

Our Director of Studies, Giulia Revelli, has drafted a list of tools that can help you get through common problems when facing a big group of students.
