Tim O'Donnell

I was born in England and grew up near Chester, on the Wirral. I first came to Italy in September 1983 to study in Rome and have been in Italy for most of the last 25 years. I am a businessman and have set up and manage a couple of companies. I am always interested in new ideas and propositions and if you're interested in doing business in Italy why not get in touch?

English in England

In 2005 I launched a start-up which became formalised in Study English in England Ltd in 2006. This is a company which operates in Italy, England and Ireland and organises study holidays for Italians in the UK and Ireland. We provide an excellent customer service which includes a 24 emergency help line. We are still growing!

English in Italy Building on the success of English in England we created English in Italy. This is a language school that we opened in my town, Borgoricco, in January 2008. We teach mainly English although we also have some Spanish and Italian lessons. If you would like to learn some Italian, why not drop me a line?
