Language Services Direct is committed to providing you with professional English lessons tailored to your specific needs.
Our English language training can be adjusted to any ability level, can be designed to target specific corporate skills, and can be set to a pace suitable for your team.
We aim to meet the specific goals you have for English language training in the most cost-effective manner. You will experience a personalised, flexible service that is created specifically to suit your needs.
We will have an initial conversation with you so that we can get an idea of exactly what you require, what your goals are, and to get an assessment of the ability of the learners.
Your dedicated Account Manager will be assigned and become your single point of contact for everything to do with your English course. They will be committed to making the process as simple as possible for you.
We then search through our database to find you the perfect English language tutor to deliver the level of training that your learners need.
We have an extensive database of fully-qualified trainers, so we will get extremely specific about matching the English trainer’s skills to your needs.
For example, if you have a team member who needs to become more skilled at negotiation in English, then we will ensure we find you an English teacher who is confident in teaching business negotiation skills in English and has experience in your industry.
Together with the teacher, we then craft your English course to your specifications, taking into account the availability of both your team and the teacher, what the teacher thinks needs to be focused on first, and your required time scale.
Our Account Manager will then communicate all of this information to you in a clear, simple, and concise manner, and arrange all the set-up procedures.
Your Account Manager will be keeping a close eye on every aspect of your course throughout its duration. We will arrange for detailed progress reports, along with any management information that the learner’s HR or L&D department require.
We apply rigour to this not only to ensure this training is meeting your goals and producing a return on investment but also so that the learners are completely satisfied and we are collecting any feedback on our teachers.
