In-Company Language Training
For an introduction by Dr Mike Freeman: click here. [YouTube video clip]
Lingualearn is able to offer in-company language courses for: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Japanese, Chinese, Arabic, Dutch and Swedish. We have a very large network of language trainers on our books at present, all qualified and experienced native-speaker trainers. Very high quality corporate language training is our speciality!
All our courses are tailor-made to suit the needs of small groups or individuals. We would suggest starting with a needs analysis for each person who is interested. This would consist of a language assessment (email test in the target language, checked by telephone when necessary), questionnaire and interview to evaluate the needs, wants, strengths and weaknesses of each potential trainee. Following this needs analysis we would design a training plan for each person concerned. The training plan could contain elements of:
1. a self-study package using tapes, CD ROMs, websites, books, videos ... [see our materials section]
2. in-company language training in a small group or 1:1
3. a distance course using telephone, email and web-based materials [see our distance courses section]
4. personal tuition at the tutor's home, in a restaurant, or other suitable location [see our tutors section]
One of the main features of our courses is their exceptionally high quality. We only use the best language trainers and learning materials available. We also offer in-company training at almost any time of the day, seven days a week: lunchtime lessons, early morning sessions, evening classes, weekend seminars ...
The needs of trainees vary considerably from person to person, and from company to company. There is no one ideal method nor approach to language training. Some trainees require a more structured, traditional approach, while others prefer a more communicative methodology. We try to take into account the learning preferences of each individual, giving them just the right amount of challenge and encouragement.
The combined effect of all these features is language training at its best: a real sense of achievement and personal satisfaction for delegates, improved performance and skills in the target language, better relationships with overseas clients and suppliers, a greater understanding of foreign cultures, more meaningful international communications, and more successful international trade. There are a host of benefits , some obvious, some less so.
In-company courses are for a minimum of 20 hours; we recommend at least two hours per week. Courses vary in price according to their length, location, number of delegates and complexity, but a ball-park figure for a 20 hour course would be £1600 + VAT with a qualified native-speaker trainer. This price would include a high quality course for up to 6 employees, but exclude needs analysis, materials and VAT. The cost of training is slightly lower for longer courses (e.g. for 40 hours+) and individuals, but slightly higher in large cities (e.g. central London) and for larger groups.
Please complete an on-line registration form for groups or individuals, and we'll get back to you as soon as we can. There is no obligation and one of our consultants will contact you with a price and suggested starting date. If the price is too high, we can suggest ways of lowering it e.g. incorporating more self-study using the latest CD ROMs or DVDs.
