Language Trainers Attends Amazon’s Services Trade Show at Coalville, UK
On Wednesday 25th September 2019, Language Trainers had the distinct pleasure to take part in an Amazon trade show at the multinational technology tycoon’s warehouse near Coalville, Leicestershire. The massive site is almost 180,000 square metres in size and the building alone is large enough to contain 1.5 million people!
Around midday, Language Trainers’ sales supervisor, Natalia Taylor, and financial controller, Ellis David Rosen, arrived at the warehouse, also known as the Amazon Fulfilment Centre. They promptly started to set up their stall alongside other attending companies, ready to communicate with the on-site staff of over 800 people.
“We also had different marketing materials: branded pens, agendas and flyers, which we gave to the employees,” said Natalia.
The event officially began at 2 pm, and over the course of the next 6 hours, groups of Amazon personnel took it in turns to browse the stalls of the attending businesses, learning about their services, perusing the materials and discussing everything from language courses to truck driving lessons.
Natalia and Ellis did a fine job speaking with the Amazon staff who approached the stall, focusing on non-native workers who want to improve their English skills via Language Trainers’ flexible and tailor-made lessons.
It is through such trade exhibitions that Language Trainers not only finds eager learners to enrol in our courses, but they enable our teams to establish strong links with successful and international companies, like Amazon Inc., as part of our strategy to raise awareness of the brand.
Our enthusiastic Sales & Marketing department has already begun enquiring about other high-profile trade shows for our talented team to attend in the near future! So, whether you are an individual looking to learn a new language or represent a business whose staff could benefit from improving their linguistic range, we hope to see you at one of these events soon!
Language Trainers Brings Romanian to The Language Show
London- From November 9th to 11th Language Trainers had the opportunity to be a part of The Language Show London 2018. This conference brought together some of the best ideas, best practices, and best technologies in language learning today. Language Trainers was honored to share its methods and excited to learn from all the other participants.
Language Trainers sent Academic Advisor and expert teacher Mariana Serb to share its teaching methods and practices with the conference. She took her 30-minute time slot and taught the attendees the ins and outs of basic Romanian. Her challenge was to teach the conference goers how to greet each other in Romanian by the end of a mere half an hour.
“Thirty minutes was short, it was a bit difficult, but it was fun to share some Romanian with the conference” Mariana Serb, Language Trainers Academic Advisor
By the end of that short block, Mariana had successfully taught her students basic greetings and pleasantries, and bid a fond ‘Mulţumesc’ to all her students.
Mariana demonstrated in just thirty minutes in London what Language Trainers teachers do all over the world, every day. She used the latest in education research, combined with innovative teaching methods to expand the knowledge of her students in a fun and interactive way. These methods helped the students learn the basics of Romanian, just as they help students learn languages from Arabic to Zulu.
“ It was exciting to meet so many language providers and passionate language learners at this unique event, and I must say that what I enjoyed the most were the language tasters that I attended.” -Mariana Serb, Language Trainers Academic Advisor.
Language Trainers is proud to be a part of the language teaching community. This community helps bring our world ever closer, speed the integration of markets, and foster understanding among cultures. Conferences such as the Language Show bring together the best minds in the community, and Language Trainers is proud to share our methods.
ISO 9001:2015 Certificate Renewed
Language Trainers has achieved the renewal of our company-wide ISO 9001:2015 quality-management certification, formerly known as ISO 9001:2008, for the provision of language training services to organisations and individuals.
ISO 9001:2015 certification is a globally recognised standard awarded to organisations to help them meet the expectations and needs of their customers. The primary goal of this standard is to improve customer satisfaction for a company by defining the processes needed to meet their customer's requirements. New to the standard are specifications regarding risk and opportunity management that strengthens its use as a governance tool. This makes implementing multiple management systems much quicker and easier, ultimately saving both time and money.
We pride ourselves on the excellent quality and service that we provide and by updating this certification, Language Trainers will continue to strengthen its position within the language education industry.
