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 very quick to respond to enquiries and keeps you up to date on when you will receive your lessons. This makes them a very easy company to deal with"”Learning Korean to get her dream job
Language Trainers: Katie, thanks for speaking with us! Can you tell us the language you chose to study and why you chose to learn with Language Trainers?
Katie Taylor: After discovering an internship in South Korea that gave me the opportunity to practise my dream job, I decided to start learning Korean to give me a greater chance at getting the internship. But apart from simply learning the language, I also have a huge love for the culture and, so, I wanted to find a tutor who lives in South Korea to teach me the most up to date cultural information and adaptations of the language. Language Trainers was able to find me a teacher who lived in Seoul and this gave me the opportunity to ask questions, during my lessons, about the country and what it is like living in South Korea. In addition to this, Language Trainers was also able to find me a teacher who suited me and gave me the option to change teachers, if I found the teacher was not right for me. Luckily, my teacher is a perfect fit, with many years of experience in teaching both English and Korean.
Language Trainers: That’s excellent! Most of our students are satisfied with the first teacher we match them with, but there are occasionally exceptions, so it’s great you were so pleased. In general, what is your favourite thing about your Korean course?
Katie Taylor: I like that Language Trainers keep in regular contact to ask how your lessons are going and if they can do anything to improve the learning experience. This is quite refreshing because some other learning providers are lacking in their communication.
Language Trainers: What is the most useful thing about learning with Language Trainers?
Katie Taylor: Having the ability to contact my teacher or Language Trainers whenever I need help or support remains the most helpful aspect because I know that if I am stuck, either will respond very quickly.
Language Trainers: And do any especially rewarding experiences spring to mind?
Katie Taylor: My rate of progression and how quickly I could start having conversations in Korean has been so rewarding. Learning a language is always hard but when you look back and see how far you've come in such a short space of time, you begin to believe that you can go even further. My teacher is so kind and patient and always supports me in my journey.
Language Trainers: Do you believe your language ability has improved? Have you had an opportunity to use your new skills in the real world?
Katie Taylor: When I first began learning Korean, I was a complete beginner with no previous experience of the language. Now, I am able to read, write and hold a conversation quite comfortably, which has happened very quickly (within a space of 2 months). I have not had a chance to use my skills in the real world just yet but I am moving to London very shortly and am planning on dining out at a few Korean restaurants to practise my skills and my accent.
Language Trainers: Would you recommend Language Trainers to other learners?
Katie Taylor: Definitely. Language Trainers is very quick to respond to enquiries and keeps you up to date on when you will receive your lessons. This makes them a very easy company to deal with.
Language Trainers: Thanks so much for your time and honesty, Katie! Finally, do you have a favourite Korean word, phrase, or expression?
Katie Taylor: 잘 먹겠습니다 - it means "I will eat well". It's a polite term to use when dining in a Korean home. It is a way of thanking someone for their efforts and saying that you will eat well because of them. I thought it was a very sweet expression.
