We will be happy to offer a free language consultancy before the start of your language training course. This normally takes the form of a telephone conversation in which your specific language training requirements are discussed. We talk about the business situations in which you might be required to use your new language skills, and what work-specific terminology you would like to be able to use in the target language. We can also advise on the best method of learning for you to achieve your goals, and then design a language training course which will enable you to achieve them.
