The second edition of Business English in London was organized by English Training (Lissone, Italy) in conjunction with LexeFiscal (Mayfair, London) and was attended by 9 Dottori Commercialisti ed Esperti Contabili from Monza e Brianza and Naples and one professor from Castellanza University.


The seminars (09.00 – 17.00) were held at the exclusive members-only Lansdowne club in Mayfair, one of the most prestigious areas of London.

All of the course was conducted exclusively in English. Even though the subject matter was very technical and detailed all attendees managed to interact and participate in English.

Here below is some feedback from participants:


Giorgio Catania

“How I can say thanks, thanks and thanks again to English Training for this unique opportunity.

Friday was a very interesting exchange of opinions. After a good overview of tax and legal system for companies and individuals in England, a real brain storming about legal entity over Europe took place with the speakers.

Friday night we had an amazing dinner and funny time at a historical and typical London pub like a group of old friends we had chance to enjoy ourselves even though talking in English was made mandatory by Mark 😉

Saturday morning after a running session inside the mythical Hyde Park (very close to our hotel) we had an interesting walking tour in the financial district of London “the City” led by a very stimulating and well prepared guide.

Thanks again to all, hoping to have the opportunity to repeat.”

"Do you know how to set up a Company in UK? Now I know.

Do you know why Banks started using trademarks? Now I know.

Do you know what a Turf Accountant does? Now I know.

Maybe you could easily answer those question with google, but that’s the difference between being a good and a bad consultant."


Laura Gerosa

“The ultimate Business Course with English Training: the best learning experience on a professional level and a chance of personal growth, as well. Thanks to Mark, I also feel to have a better understanding of English customs and traditions, something that I will never find in touristic guides ….. warmly recommended!”
