ConversationCorporate clients need to rapidly develop fluency for compelling business reasons. Students are required to do most of the speaking in class. This differs radically from the traditional classroom approach where students spend around 10%-20% of class time generating phrases and sentences.
Written Business CommunicationsLingua train students in the use of business letters, email, meeting agendas/protocol, policy writing, procedures/regulations, marketing/sales, etc.
NegotiationsIt is not easy to form international alliances when the cultural rules of the game are not understood. Students learn to understand when to be aggressive, listen, or compromise in our negotiations training.
Effective Presentation SkillsStudents receive training and practice on how to make an effective presentation to a foreign audience.
Composition and StyleLingua provides effective training in formal writing.
Specialized VocabularyStudents receive training in the correct use of the vocabulary particular to their professional environment. For vocabulary acquisition, we apply accelerated training techniques scientifically proven to improve learning efficiency.
Accent ReductionWe reduce the students' accent in a relatively short time through oral drills and then, highlight gains and areas for improvement.
Cross-Cultural CommunicationA language is of limited use without knowing cultural factors, tips, and pitfalls to avoid. We train students to use proper foreign customs and understand nuances of the target culture.
Literary and Cultural ReadingsBackground readings to facilitate.
