Our corporate language courses

Our most popular business language courses run in Arabic, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, Portuguese and Russian. However, training is available in all world languages. Lessons can be delivered:

  • in a range of formats including one-to-one, and small and large groups
  • using various delivery modes: face-to-face, blended, online and telephone
  • with both intensive and extensive/flexible schedules
  • focusing on language as well as business communication skills

Our business language courses are delivered by well-qualified and experienced trainers who:

  •   are native speakers of the target language
  •   have experience teaching business learners and business communication skills
  •   and are often able to draw on their own background in business

For our learners’ convenience, training normally takes place at our clients’ premises. However, lessons can also be arranged at our training suite near London Bridge. Lessons are scheduled in line with learners’ business commitments.

Our approach: professional, personalised and results driven

The length and breadth of our experience in the private sector provides us with deep insight into the communicative challenges facing our corporate clients – and the training solutions needed to achieve their objectives. Each client works with a dedicated Account Manager who works hard to ensure that both the training and administrative services we provide are tailored to our clients’ requirements. We pride ourselves on being responsive, proactive and efficient.

Our Account Managers provide a fully-managed service on behalf of our clients, overseeing the full life cycle of every course:

  • pre-course needs analysis and skills assessment
  • tailored learning plan design
  • course management, monitoring and reporting
  • and detailed end-of-course progress reporting

We understand that our corporate learners have busy professional lives and require training that focuses strictly on their learning and business requirements, and delivers an excellent return on investment. To this end, our specialist language trainers deliver lessons that:

  • are highly tailored to learners’ work roles and sectors
  • develop learners’ work-based vocabulary and business communication skills such as telephoning, presenting, negotiating, etc.
  • are practice-based incorporating real-work tasks and scenarios, such as conference calls and meetings
  • use relevant, business-focused, real-world materials

Service level agreements with exacting key performance indicators are agreed with our corporate clients, rigorously implemented by our Account Managers and regularly reviewed at client meetings to ensure our clients are fully satisfied with our services.
