CEFR B2 - 3rd Year Middle School/1st Year High School
CEFR C1 - 3rd Year High School
CEFR C2 - 5th Year High School

With a CEFR C2 certification, students go above and beyond the minimum requirements necessary to be accepted into university departments in English worldwide.  EE4K Staff is dedicated and determined to help students reach those goals, allowing them to enter adulthood prepared for any opportunity, inside or outside Italy.

extreme english staff

Extreme English 4 Kids & Teens staff consists of English-speaking freelance English teachers who teach English out of passion.  We have no in-transit teachers, which allows us to follow our students closely from year to year, allowing us to reach specific and rigorous objectives with each student.  Our goal is for students to become bilingual in speaking, reading, writing, and listening in English before finishing high school, an ambitious and arduous task.  Our teachers also speak Italian, which is necessary when teaching an intermediate to advanced English grammar.  Teachers work with student groups according to their age-specific unique capabilities.  Christina and Niccoló work with preschool and elementary school students covering beginning and intermediate English learning.  Christina, Giorgio, and Niccoló work with pre-teens and teens from fourth-year elementary to second-year middle school students covering intermediate English learning.  Christina, Elisa, and Fabiola work with students from third-year middle to high school, carrying students through intermediate and advanced English learning.  Teachers regularly communicate and closely monitor every student's English language learning experience by working together as a team.
