International Briefing Packages
This product or service was discontinued on 19th of July 2012. Following the restructuring of the company, the board decided to focus on our core products and services related to language learning.
Lingualearn would like to thank you for your past custom and hope that this change does not cause you any inconvenience.
WHAT DO THE PACKAGES CONTAIN?
Lingualearn provides tailor-made packages for individuals, families and companies. These packages may be made up of selected components from our range of international briefing services:
- general information on the country
- specific information on the town/region of interest
- advice on living in the target country & regulations
- useful things to take
- advice on health and safety
- travel information and advice
- information on hotels and accommodation
- general information on the culture & stereotypes
- information on the culture of business in the target country
- information on how businesses are organised in the target country
- survival language skills
- useful phrases
- useful books, guides, films and websites.
WHO ARE THEY FOR?
Lingualearn's international briefing packages are ideal for executives on the move, expatriate families, and international travellers who wish to find one easy way of preparing themselves for a foreign language, culture and location. As all the information and advice is given by distance means, it is a very flexible service which can be delivered by email, fax, telephone, mail or internet to nearly any location worldwide.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The first step is to fill in the on-line form for Lingualearn's international briefing packages. We need to assess your needs carefully before giving you an estimate of costs, so we may request some further information. After that, we'll propose a tailor-made package with timetable and costs to suit your exact requirements. The cost of the package will vary considerably depending on the location, language and number of services required. As a rule of thumb, the information and advice presented in English costs ~£1000 per person per location, plus £85 per hour per person for the language tuition. It can be presented in different formats and adapted for special needs, e.g. the visually impaired, children, etc. Catering for special needs will inevitably increase the price of the package—quotations on request. The briefing can start before departure and continue while you are abroad. Being in touch with your language tutor while abroad can be very reassuring for some people. You can have your very own help-line to sort out linguistic and cultural questions on arrival. Bon voyage!
To be able to understand the training, we recommend that clients have at least an intermediate level in English (~ band 5 on the IELTS scale). If in doubt, we can arrange a short distance test for a small charge.
