In-Company Language Classes for Public
and Private Organizations of All Sizes
Language Trainers organizes 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 organization - 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 organizations 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 inquiry
Where your organization 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.

Client Case Studies
”"Yes, the program has been extremely helpful. My teacher was the most helpful and useful"”Rediscovering the Spanish Language
Language Trainers: Good afternoon, Bob. How are you doing?
Bob: Good afternoon. I’m good, thanks.
Language Trainers: Would you mind telling us a bit about yourself?
Bob: My name is Bob, I am 50 years old, and work as a CPA. I began studying Spanish with Language Trainers in November of 2013.
Language Trainers: And why did you begin studying Spanish? What were your reasons and goals?
Bob: Ten years ago, I was living in Guatemala. I became conversationally proficient, but after I left I did not keep practicing. Although I should have. In Tampa we have several stations that broadcast the same shows —including news programs—in both English and Spanish. I began because I wanted to be conversationally fluent again.
Language Trainers: So, why did you choose Language Trainers?
Bob: My employer found the company and picked my program for me.
Language Trainers: And did you find Language Trainers helpful?
Bob: Yes, the program has been extremely helpful.
Language Trainers: What was the most helpful part about the course?
Bob: My teacher has been the most helpful and useful. My challenge isn’t vocabulary, it’s conversational: I can hear a word that I know, but still not recognize it immediately. My teacher helps me overcome this.
Language Trainers: Do you think you would recommend Language Trainers?
Bob: Yes. Yes, I would recommend Language Trainers!
Language Trainers: And on a final note, what’s your favorite new expression in Spanish?
Bob: Well, I’d be better off not to say. It’s a funny expression, but after translating it literally to English, I might get slapped!
