MilanoInglese is a website for English teachers working in Milan, in Italy. In 2009, rather than create their own English language school in order to compete with local language schools, a group of freelance English teachers got together and created their own teacher cooperative. Advertising their services as a group of individuals, sharing their marketing costs and benefits, the group needed a website, which we built.
Local individuals or companies looking for an English teacher have absolutely no difficulty finding MilanoInglese - it has been the Number One result in related Google searches since 2010! Thanks to the level of interest this helped raise, the original group of 4 teachers has grown steadily to over 30, most of whom are now full-time freelance teachers. Visitors to the site can browse the list of teachers to see who is available in their area, read about the teacher and then contact the teacher directly, without involving middlemen, if they want. There is also a language resource section, including language quizzes, grammar guides and an automated level test for people who are studying alone.
To avoid confusing locals with pages in both English and Italian, the MilanoInglese teacher information pages are hosted on a sister website, Milanoinglese.com. This is where teachers can read about the site and, if they choose, apply to join the group. Open only to mother-tongue teachers, the group does not accept everybody who applies to join, preferring to concentrate on maintaining a quality pool of teachers rather that diluting the amount of work available.
Currently in it's third reincarnation, MilanoInglese is a simple HTML website, built entirely for speed, seo performance and ease of use. It's easy to navigate (assuming you read Italian!) and pages typically load in around half a second. Fully responsive and compatible with all browser types, it's a very good example of how keeping things simple is almost always the answer.
MilanoInglese.it and its sister site MilanoInglese.com were both built using simple HTML, focussing on speed, ease of use and seo performance. The main MilanoInglese.it website is updated frequently, at least once a month, and none of the teachers involved with the site have the time to do it themselves, so we provide a full update and maintenance service as well as hosting the site on our server. We could easily have built the site using WordPress, which would have allowed the teachers to update their own pages at will, but this would have robbed the site of a little speed and simplicity. If you are interested in getting a website like this, get in touch with us. Our prices are more than affordable and you are guaranteed a professionally-built website that will do you proud, and personal service.
