At Language Advantage we offer face-to-face, virtual or blended programs

Face-to-Face Programs

Our face-to-face learning programs are designed to improve communication skills and cover all key aspects of the business language and culture you need to manage in order to confidently interact with colleagues, clients and partners.

After a careful assessment, our team will be able to understand where, with whom, and how you will need to use the language. With this in mind, we will design a personalized program with grammar, vocabulary and goals to meet all your needs.

The classes can be private, semi-private, or organized into mini-group sessions (4-6 participants). The language training can be carried out at your workplace or in any other suitable location. The most suited instructor will be assigned to you based on your needs and scheduling preferences. Learn more about our teaching approach.

Please note that due to COVID-19, all our programs are currently running online. Contact us for more information.

English Business Immersion Program with Pre-Assessment

Your Business Immersion Program begins with a pre-assessment to determine your current level of knowledge and your linguistic goals. This language assessment consists of a series of approximately 25 questions, both written and verbal, that will measure your grammar and comprehension. After the assessment, our professional teaching team will discuss with the Director how to customize your Core Program.

Customized Core Program
Depending on your needs and goals, the elements of your Business Immersion Program might include: presenting, negotiating, telephoning, video-conference coaching, reading (and understanding business materials), chairing a meeting and socializing.

Your program includes:

  • pronunciation and elocution: enhancing sound production, intelligibility, and the overall impact of the message transmitted.
  • grammar and usage: writing emails, reports, memos, and letters.

To ensure good integration of these skills, our instructors will meet weekly to measure and evaluate your progress and adjust the program, if necessary.
