Working at the British School in Sondrio was an experience I won’t forget.

I do hope there are still some ex- students of mine walking about with a wee Highland accent.

From the moment you arrive at The British Language Centre you are made to feel welcome and one of the team. The friendly staff are always there to help with any issue, small or big, professional or personal.

The work-life balance is great as it gives you the opportunity to make the most of Sondrio’s beautiful location’.
The BLC is a very professional school with excellent resources but yet at the same time small enough to feel friendly and personal.

The classes were very managable sizes, generally from 6-12 and the regularity of classes meant I was able to build a close rapport with the students.
Sondrio is a sweet small town surronded by mou…
