Passionate About People

Do you ever need to use or better understand another language at work? Have you ever missed parts of a presentation or discussion because you couldn’t fully understand what was being said?

Language miscommunications like these can lead to problems and inefficiencies in the workplace. Productivity decreases. Relationships can be strained. Studies¹ have found that collaboration is more difficult when colleagues don’t share a language.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

For over two decades, my team at Language Advantage has been helping executives and professionals learn to speak, read and use languages for business. Our clients develop the skills and confidence to bridge communication gaps that often come with operating in a globally connected world.

Yes, it is possible! With our simple, enjoyable methods, you can quickly become proficient in a foreign language and business culture. We teach what you need to know most: the language, etiquette and specific industry terms you use every day.

My life’s mission is to have you feel comfortable enough in another language to communicate easily and confidently. Hundreds have been successful. You can, too.

Let’s get started.
