Language Services Direct’s professional Portuguese lessons will be designed to match your exact requirements.
The intensity and level of training, the corporate language skills and the pace of the course will all be created in a very bespoke way according to what your learners need.
We aim to meet the specific goals you have for Portuguese language training in the most cost-effective manner. You will experience a personalised, flexible service that is created specifically to suit your needs.
The first step is to have a conversation with us to gather the details of what you are hoping to achieve with your Portuguese course and to assess the ability of the learners.
You will be assigned a dedicated Account Manager. This person will take care of every aspect of your course, and will be available to answer your questions and simplify the process for you.
Your Account Manager will perform a search through our very extensive database to locate a Portuguese tutor that meets your needs.
We are very specific about teacher’s skills here according to your learners’ requirements. For example, if your staff were preparing to be more involved in negotiation in Portuguese, then that specific skill of negotiation training is what we will look for in the teacher. We would most likely also be finding a teacher that has experience in your industry.
Once we have confirmed your Portuguese teacher, we then collaborate with them to build your specific Portuguese course that meets your goals in the duration you’ve requested in the most effective arrangement, leveraging on the teacher’s extensive experience in the learning process.
Your Account Manager will succinctly deliver the information you need to know and set everything up for you. You can choose how much detail you would like, and our Account Manager will adjust as required.
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.
