Parlamondo was founded in 1998 and is specialised in providing language services. Our team is made up of mother tongue professionals with a wide experience in the field of language training, translation and interpreting.
We meet our clients’ many needs and requests with experience, professionalism and competence and we guarantee a high quality service.
Our objective has always been: to work with and support our partners in developing effective communication in a constantly changing international environment.
Since we started:
HOURS of ONE-to-ONE
HOURS of Online Training
DAYS of interpreting
Our staff is our strength.
All staff working for Parlamondo, from our administration staff to our language teachers, from our translators to our interpreters, stand out for their professionalism and initiative.
Our success is built on two main strengths: dynamism and flexibility.
We bring our experience and professionalism to the corporate reality of our clients by developing high quality customised training courses and language services that match the company's culture and needs.
Parlamondo’s objective, which has been confirmed over the years, is to work with and support our partners in developing and enhancing effective communication skills in a constantly changing international environment.
The initial and final language level tests are extremely important for effective course planning and an objective evaluation of the attainment level at the end of the learning project.
The result in numerical form refers to the Common European Framework of Reference for languages (CFER) and international linguistic standards.
The test consists of a 45-minute written (multiple choice) test and an oral interview of 10 minutes.

A project for every need
The successful outcome of every single training project is the objective that we have pursued with constant enthusiasm since 1998.
Each project is “personalised” at every stage: briefing, entry test, presentation, training, monitoring, evaluation and client satisfaction.
Our team of trainers is made up of native or bilingual professionals who share our philosophy. Their work is coordinated by our director of studies, who supports teachers in terms of constantly evolving new and interesting teaching resources in line with the objectives of each individual client.

Financed training courses
Group courses are designed for those who are interested in acquiring communication skills in a new language, in consolidating previous learning or in improving their language level to reach a new objective.
Study groups are small (4-6 students) and we make sure that all students within a group share the same level of language skills. This, combined with the communicative method adopted by dynamic mother tongue teachers, means that students achieve excellent results.
The recommended minimum number of hours is 40 with one or two 90/120-minute lessons a week. Days and times are scheduled in agreement with the participants or with the HR manager in case of in-company courses.
Courses can start at any moment during the year.
One-to-one courses are designed for those who need a personalised learning programme in terms of the specific goals and/or the scheduling of the course. In order to guarantee excellent results, the course is tailored to the precise objectives and expectations of the client.
One-to-one lessons can be programmed with maximum flexibility during the week from Monday to Friday, from 8am to 8pm and Saturday from 9am to 1pm.
The recommended minimum lesson time is one 120-minute meeting a week.
The individual programmes can run alongside other courses.
Plus point: personalisation of topics and training needs according to client specifications.
An intensive course has clear and precise objectives to be met in a short period of time. It can be designed for a maximum of three people in a single study group as long as the language level and the objectives are the same.
Objectives and programme: the didactic programme is designed according to the specific needs of the participants to guarantee a perfect correspondence between lesson content and individual requirements. The course can be adapted to study a specific business area or sector–specific language (fashion, technical, administration etc).
Attendance: 8 hours a day for one week Monday to Friday. The course can also run over two weeks (semi-intensive) with 4 hours of lessons a day.
Plus points: maximum personalisation; 2-3 teachers alternately take the class in order to keep interest and attention levels high; lunch is taken with the teacher to develop socialising skills.
Objective: the same as in a face to face course: to strengthen knowledge of grammar, vocabulary and syntax and to develop the ability to interact with, and understand, others.
As in one-to-one courses the lesson content can be personalised and contextualised to a specific sector.
A computer and internet access is all that is necessary to follow the course. Lessons are held by video call with Skype or a similar application.
Plus point: continuity in teaching and learning and total flexibility in managing lessons.
Designed for those who have frequent telephone contact with foreign interlocutors or who simply want to improve their conversation skills and keep in practice.
Objectives: start and manage formal and informal telephone conversations, improve use of telephone language and fluency; develop listening comprehension and oral interaction skills with native speakers of other languages.
Duration and booking: each telephone conversation lasts 15 minutes; each call can be booked by accessing the booking file and reserving the day, time and teacher.
Effective communication must bear in mind the many aspects of the communicative act: social, cultural, behavioural, empathetic. There is never a moment when we are not communicating something.
Our exclusive workshops in English as an International Language are hands-on and practical. They are held by highly qualified tutors with considerable experience in the field and can be customised to the needs of your company or of a single individual.
For most people speaking in public, whether in the professional or personal field, is difficult and stressful. But what is the problem?

Emotional intelligence and sensitivity are at the basis of good communication skills. Practicing refining our social skills and raising our awareness of their importance can be very useful activities in the world of business. People judge our potential on the basis of our ability to convince, amuse, empathise and socialise with others. In fact, nobody is keen to do business with someone they do not trust or who does not appear to be on the same wavelength. We all want to be in contact with people who give us positive feedback and who show an interest in communicating.
The seminar focuses on developing these abilities, on encouraging participants to socialise and to familiarise themselves with available technologies in order to develop their awareness of their own social skills.
Participants acquire an effective set of communication skills, and take part in practical interactive sessions tailored on their specific area of business. Their social skills will be assessed during practical case-study activities and role-plays.
