Our Approach

We believe that the key to success in international business is the ability to speak English fluently and confidently. To achieve this goal, the participant needs regular practice of discussing important business topics, as well as coaching in how to improve grammar and vocabulary and avoid common errors.

 

We start with a 20-minute online assessment interview. This gives us a chance to determine the requirements of the participant:

 

What is the starting level?

 

What are the most obvious mistakes?

 

Which skills need to be improved?

 

Are there any special vocabulary requirements?

 

Does this participant require group training on a weekly basis, or is individual coaching more suitable?

 

Should the training be mainly on site at the company or would online video sessions be more convenient?

 

Group training is delivered in 90-minute sessions. Each session is divided into two parts:

 

  • 45 minutes of discussion-based training to improve listening and speaking skills and focus on specific words and phrases that the participants need.

  • 45 minutes of grammar, vocabulary and translation exercises that focus on areas where the participants have some room for improvement.

 

For group training, we recommend a regular weekly session, whereas individual coaching can be scheduled flexibly. The participant and the coach arrange convenient appointments on a week-by-week basis.

 

Individual coaching is provided in 60-minute sessions. Each session starts with a discussion about a topic related to the participant’s daily work or line of business. After that, the coach will focus on bringing the participant’s language skills up to the standard required for international business.
