Thank you for your message. The Skype lessons will not be available under premium + . We will have however 1-to-1 coaching on Italian language and you will be able to discuss any questions regarding Italian with your teacher via e-mail.

Interesting, the personalized curriculum is appealing to me because my father owns a gas station, and Skype makes it much easier to connect with the instructor for role playing and practicing the language as it is spoken. My needs are for managing a bar, valuable property that I will eventually inherit, I need to be able to communicate those business matters with native Italians who will most likely not speak English. For example, buying and selling transactions, glossary of inventory items to keep in stock that will bring in more customers to the bar, mainly coffee that Italians prefer. After, watching a few episodes of "the Apprentice Italia" I found it difficult to understand Flabio and some of the participants who were conducting business. I really need to understand the Italian business language in order to keep the business operational. I need someone who can speak English well enough to understand my business needs from my perspective as an American. I will also need a coach who knows the basics of real estate law as it applies in my circumstances and as it applies to the country of Italy because when it comes to selling land I am sure there are taxes, real estate agents (notaio) lawyers and government bureaucratic red tape that I need to deal with. It would also be nice to have some pod-casts available for premium members that simulate these types of business situations where the metric system is being used. For example, liters, kilometers etc. In the USA the metric system is not used for measuring goods. This presents not only a huge translation problem but a big math problem (conversions) for American English speaking businessmen. The lessons I would need are surrounding the basics of accounting as it applies to the purchasing of fuel, GPL, petro/gasoline, GAS, etc as it applies to the automobile industry in Italy. In the USA we use different fuel and energy resources and as the world evolves, and humans attempt to lessen the dependency on Oil- something as easy as running "la benzina" becomes more complicated for international businessmen that want to conduct business in Italy and help Italy's economy grow.

Hi

Thank you for writing back. ItalianPod101.com focuses mainly on the conversational Italian therefore we do not have a specialized staff in the area you desire.

We will think of some more business minded series however I do not know if we can focus on one specific area.

Under premium plus subscription the teacher will be able to answer some specific questions that you may have, however I do not know how detailed you would need it. PS. all our premium plus teachers are native speakers with excellent English.

Could you send us an example of the specific query that you may have?

Regards
