I got an email today asking about English speaking vets in Milan, and I found the answer in the English Yellow Pages, which is ìa handy list of English speaking businesses and professionals throughout Italy.
The English Yellow Pages may prove useful to those of you who are not quite up to scratch with Italian, or are not going to be here long enough to have time to get a good enough handle on the language. This may well be the case if you have only been seconded here for a year or so.
This service may also be useful for tourists who have some problem or other and need to find some way to get round the language barrier. Not a bad favourite to add to your mobile phone browser, if you think the thing is up to it. My mobile phone browser is terrible.
Stop reading, start speaking
Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.
Assuming you can view the site, you will find that there is quite an impressive list of categories. You can wade through them all here, or you can simply search by name and city.
Despite its, possibly misleading, name, the English Yellow Pages are actually based in Rome in Italy and were set up in 1984 by an enterprising American woman, one Tracy Roberts, an American from Santa Monica, California.
Try the service out and see how you get on.
