Business French Courses

Business French Programs Overview

Flexible and targeted, with content and topics that are updated as the need evolves, these courses are highly adaptable and results-driven.

Non-French-speaking professionals quickly improve their proficiency and are able to communicate effectively with colleagues and customers. They better understand internal communication, safety signs, and operational protocols in sectors like mining and construction.

National companies with offices, sites or customers in Québec, Canada and other francophone countries or regions are able to communicate better with French speakers there, minimizing barriers and creating better relationships.

Testimonials

“Learning a new language means acquiring a new culture and mindset; once you are comfortable with these new language skills, they open doors into a more welcoming and interactive environment.”

Lizbeth Toscano, Health & Safety Manager, IAMGOLD

Business Language Programs

Language learning that’s customized for you, in any of six language programs. Your industry, role, and sector-specific vocabulary is the focus, intensified for maximum effectiveness.

The programs combine general communication with real business scenarios and tasks. You learn by enacting situations and conversations that are relevant to you, both on-the-job and as someone living in another country.

A training plan is developed for you specifically, following a thorough evaluation of your writing and/or oral skills.

Elite Coaching – Advanced Learning

Offered now in English and French only, we focus on concise, precise language; public speaking techniques; and strengthening presentation skills. There are courses for intermediate, advanced, and English and French-as-a-first-language professionals.

To begin, we evaluate your writing or oral skills. Then, we design a unique training plan that emphasizes the areas you want to focus on—reports, email, presentations, meetings, or other interactions. Topics and exercises deal with real-life and business scenarios and examples, so you can begin putting what you learn into practice right away.

Lunch & Learn Boootcamps

Yes! Language learning can be fun! An interactive small-group forum can help you practise and improve your language skills with others at the same level who have the same goal.

At Bootcamp, groups of four-to-six participants meet for conversations and different activities to learn and practice general and business vocabulary. From New Beginner to Advanced, you’ll be with others whose language ability is similar, so you can encourage each other, chart your progress and have fun learning together.

In one-hour sessions, you’ll learn to improve your language skills with colleagues and/or clients. Discussions, role-plays, mini-improvisations, presentations, and a theme day (work, current affairs, social interactions, telephone skills, travel, and others) will keep your interest high, your spirits light, and the vocabulary relevant.

Language & Culture Basics

The perfect starting point. In just 12 weeks, professionals and business people will easily grasp the essentials of a new country’s language and culture.

Even a rudimentary knowledge of another’s language and customs sends a strong message of respect and courtesy. People recognize your effort. That builds trust, reduces “foreignness” and establishes the basis for an ongoing relationship.

With our help, those important first connections with people in other countries will be both appropriate and positive. You will be able to greet people, introduce yourself and even invite someone to a social function.

You can relax, knowing that at work and socially, you understand the language niceties, essential manners and customs of the country where you do business.
