For some it may seem like yesterday, but this year Linguarama Turin is celebrating 25 years of providing quality English training to the good people and industries of Turin. Started from scratch in 1990 – the same year as Turin hosted the World Cup – the school has moved premises since the first location, but has retained some of the original team of committed, dedicated staff. Most notably the Centre Manager Cristina Fiderio who opened the original school and has been instrumental to its continued success.
‘I remember clearly the year we opened the school, the city was full of international football supporters. Hosting the Olympics and then the World Cup was a real turning point for Turin which has since gone from strength to strength to becoming an important business and cultural centre in northern Italy. And I feel that at the same time Linguarama Turin has grown alongside the city to become a well-known and respected training centre.’
Withstanding the economic highs and lows of the last 25 years Linguarama Turin has built a solid reputation, mostly by word of mouth, by offering quality teaching, flexibility and excellent learning support with easy access to up-to-date course information. ‘We look after our customers; and the training officers really appreciate the fact that they can access invoices, lessons, feedback, and attendance through our unique on-line School Management System.’
The flexible individual courses have proven to be the most popular course option of Linguarama Turin’s portfolio. Cathy Ryland, the Director of Studies since 2003, manages the teaching team who regularly travel to locations around the city to deliver the courses in-company. Linguarama Turin has a wide client base and is a major supplier for FIAT, which since becoming part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has found, like many international businesses, that English has become an integral part of their future success. And if the past 25 years is anything to go by, Linguarama Turin is the ideal training partner to help achieve this goal.
Many congratulations to the team at Linguarama Turin!
