In-Company Language Classes for Public
and Private Organisations of All Sizes
Language Trainers organises tailor-made classes in any language in any location. Our native-speaking, experienced trainers will teach your employees at your offices at any time of the day, any day of the week. We are that flexible; wherever your office is located, whenever you need to study, we will set you up with your ideal language instructor. In addition, our trainers can teach individual employees at the employee’s home or via Skype (for groups of up to 4).
Private classes are ideal for busy learners who have very little time, need complete
focus on their needs, and total flexibility to be able to cancel and reschedule
with very short notice. If you need to change the day or time of the class, we only
require 2 working days notice (e.g. to change a class on a Tuesday, let the teacher know the Friday before).
A group can consist of anywhere between two and fifteen students. However, we find that with large classes, instructors are unable to provide enough individual attention to help each student progress quickly and confidently. Because of this, we recommend seven or eight students in one group. In a closed group course, all participants should be at approximately the same language level. If proficiency levels are markedly different, we recommend splitting the group into two or more smaller classes. This will help ensure that each learner makes as much progress as possible with their language learning.
If you are unsure about your company's current language capabilities, our IT department will create a personalized online level test for your organisation - this is completely free of charge and you are under no commitment to continue if you decide to use a different provider. The test results are reviewed by our Academic Team and recommendations are made for the ideal group size and combinations.
If students are absent from a group course, we can provide make-up classes
that are usually billed at the end of the course. If the teacher is notified in
advance, it is possible to record an audio cassette of the class so the absentee
may listen to it later.
Another option is to arrange live online classes, which
can be attended even when students are in remote locations (as long as they have an internet connection).
Online classes can also be recorded and reviewed later.
For organisations taking 3 or more courses (of the same or different languages in the same or across different offices) Language Trainers also offers special Loyalty Rates which we can discuss after you make your enquiry
Where your organisation needs more than just general language skills (for travel, survival, or conversation), our qualified, native trainers can teach more specific business topics to cover giving presentations, writing e-mails, making phone calls, managing negotiations, and/or technical language relevant to your industry sector.
Since our courses are tailor-made, a very detailed needs assessment is
done with you and the participants at the beginning of the class to ensure
that we cover everything you need to know and don’t waste your time with unnecessary
topics. You are also welcome to bring your own suggestions to the trainer and
elaborate the finer points of your course. We can also include accent softening and cultural
awareness where these are required.
Our teachers are all native speakers who are both experienced and certified to teach their own language to foreign learners. Furthermore, our tutors have a language-related university degree and at least 3 years of teaching experience. Before you start the course, we would be happy to send you your trainer's profile so you can have a look at her/his teaching qualifications and experience along with a suitable course outline. Beyond the quality of our tailor-made courses, our personal Course Coordinators (account managers) and our highly-experienced native-speaker instructors, we know that HR Directors and other managers will also appreciate our state-of-the-art Client Control Center which offers instant reports to monitor your employees' progress, attendance and test results in real-time.More info....

Client Case Studies
” Language Trainers is a great platform for people who are completely new to a language and the flexibility of being able to have lessons online and at different times was amazing. I think you are an excellent option for people who have busy lifestyles but really want to make a start in learning a language”Dutch Flemish: A Birthday Surprise
Language Trainers: Hi, Kate! It’s great to speak with you today! Would you mind starting off by telling us a bit about you?
Kate Adley: Hi, of course! I am an international recruitment consultant living in London, but I lived in Prague for 3 years previously, working for an international company. I find I have a very diverse mix of nationalities around me all the time and am constantly surrounded by different languages. My mother is also fluent in French and German, so languages have always been a big part of my life!
Language Trainers: It sounds like you had a lot of languages you could have chosen to study, then! Which one did you settle on with us?
Kate Adley: I contacted Language Trainers because I wanted to study Dutch Flemish. My motivation was my boyfriend, who is Belgian, and I wanted to surprise him for his birthday [Laughs]
Language Trainers: That’s so sweet! I bet he loved that! Why did you choose Language Trainers?
Kate Adley: Language Trainers has really positive reviews and I liked that I could have a taster lesson first before committing to anything. The flexibility was also really important to me as I have quite a demanding job, so being able to find a teacher who could fit the lessons around my schedule was super helpful, as well as being able to have lessons remotely.
Language Trainers: I’m delighted we could be so accommodating. So, Language Trainers was worth it, would you say?
Kate Adley: Yes, for sure. It was great for me as a complete beginner. I really liked the flexibility of the lessons, the ability to go back over things that I had initially found difficult and that my teacher, Chris, was so amazingly kind and patient, even when I wasn't so patient with myself!
Language Trainers: If it makes you feel any better, I think every student feels moments of frustration when learning a language. It’s one reason we try so hard to find such experienced and good-mannered trainers. With everything you mentioned in mind, what was the most helpful part of the course?
Kate Adley: Chris could easily see in each class how much I had absorbed from the previous lesson and I liked that he didn't overwhelm me with information. We went at a pace that worked for me and often revisited lessons as needed. I have certainly noticed an improvement in my understanding of Dutch and it was hugely motivating to discover how much I could understand when with my boyfriend and his family.
Language Trainers: And what's been your most rewarding experience from all this?
Kate Adley: I would say the confidence it has given me to keep going with Dutch, even when it seems really challenging. It was also really satisfying to see my progress as the lessons went on and that Chris was enjoying my progress with me.
Language Trainers: That’s wonderful! It’ll be great to get to know them even better! Well, it sounds like you have had a great learning experience, but would you recommend Language Trainers to others?
Kate Adley: Yes absolutely. Language Trainers is a great platform for people who are completely new to a language and the flexibility of being able to have lessons online and at different times was amazing. I think you are an excellent option for people who have busy lifestyles but really want to make a start in learning a language.
Language Trainers: And finally, what's your favourite Dutch Flemish expression that you like to use?
Kate Adley: “Ik ben zo blij”, which means “I am so happy!”
Language Trainers: An excellent choice! Thank you so much, Kate!
