Crafting linguistic solutions together with you

FACE-TO-FACE INSTRUCTION

Individual Courses

INDIVIDUAL COURSES

An instructor/coach is available to respond as closely as possible to your professional language needs.

In an individual course, the participant actively progresses at a pace that matches his or her needs. The instructor customizes the multi-media teaching materials and also works from original working documents taken from the participant’s professional activities. For optimal results, individual courses can be combined with telephone courses. Alternating both learning modes enhances language acquisition.

  • Language personally corrected
  • Dynamic one-on-one interaction with the instructor
  • Greater confidence acquired
