Corporate Language Tuition
Business language classes with Talk Languages
We organise one-to-one and group lessons for companies who want to bring language classes to their business. Our teachers can come to your office during the working day, early morning, lunch time, after office hours, even the weekends – whatever time suits you.
Perhaps you have an office abroad, or spend time visiting or studying foreign markets? Your lack of language skills may be holding you back. Learning a few basics of a new language could have a dramatic effect on your business in expanding overseas markets.
Our prices are competitive and we have a simple pricing system. We don't charge handling fees or credit card surcharges. What you see is what you pay.
Our strength is in the quality of our teachers. We conduct a face-to-face interview with each member of our team. We help and encourage them as much as we can.
Our catchment area is Central London and Greater London, typically within the M25 motorway, and some of South East England.
Our business language classes go further than social etiquette. Do you want to learn about business documentation, or how to do a presentation, or learn specialist vocabulary in your chosen language? We can teach you that.
What to expect from a lesson
Meetings, Greetings, Communications and Presentations
Our teachers can teach your chosen language at the level you want. They will create lessons which focus on social situations, basic business vocabulary, communications, presentations, or specialist vocabulary for your business. Conversation classes will be geared towards getting you to speak! A beginner business language course will enable you to master basic business etiquette in 10 sessions. A personal tutor is the best way to gain confidence. Perhaps you need something very specific for a client?
Personal tuition for corporate language learning
One-to-one tuition with a qualified teacher is undoubtedly the best way of learning a language. Your teacher can concentrate on your own particular needs and problem areas, and may well turn into a good friend! You will be more willing to perform and make mistakes in front of an experienced teacher, and there is no better way to build on existing knowledge and consolidate new skills. Your confidence will know no bounds!
Two-to-one tuition can also work well, especially if the two of you are of a similar standard. There is the obvious advantage of being able to do role plays, an important tool for conversation and pronunciation. You can also do set homework together and practice between lessons. A bit of healthy competition can work wonders!
We can also cater for small groups of up to 6 (sometimes more, but many more than this would seem like a lecture). Small groups are good if the members are all concentrating on the same goal, such as business vocabulary, or making a presentation in a foreign language. Several businesses have remarked on our teachers' ability to get their message across to a group of students in a short time, inspiring enthusiasm and making lessons fun!
Your choice of location
Language lessons for business are normally held in the student's office or workplace - your Talk Languages teacher will come to you.
If this is not convenient, there are other options - a nearby cafe perhaps, or the quiet public spaces in the South Bank and Barbican Centres. The great city of London with its riverbanks and parks is the perfect location for lessons alfresco! Our teachers can also come to your home to teach, and some teachers have excellent teaching facilities in their own homes.
Simply state your preference when you contact us - we will find the best solution for you.
Timings to suit you
When are you free for lessons? Language lessons work best if you have lessons regularly, on a day and at a time which suits you and your company. However, you will always need a bit of flexibility for those unexpected events.
We have teachers who work during the day, in the evenings, and at weekends, so we should be able to find a teacher to suit you.
You can liaise with your teacher to rearrange tuition times - as long as you give 24 hours notice of cancellations and changes then no fee will be charged.
Flexibility is the key!
