Foreign Language Training for Business Professionals
It’s all about respect.
It’s easy to make the assumption that your employees don’t need to learn another language to do business with foreign colleagues and clients because English has become so prevalent. While English is widely spoken worldwide, foreign language training for business professionals can be critical to both individual and organizational success. Learning the language of clients and global partners demonstrates respect for their language and culture, and respect is a key component in building relationships and trust. The very prevalence of English around the world makes your gesture even more valuable.

Transitioning from another foreign language training provider
A French bank had a high volume of employees taking French language training with another provider. They were interested in contracting with inlingua, but the organization and effort to transition over 100 employees to a new provider were daunting. inlingua Metro New York strategized the transition. In a quick turnaround time, we assessed the skills of all of the employees in group and private training, reorganized group assignments, and set up new schedules. inlingua Metro New York also took on the accounting for the company’s language training investment and developed special monthly financial reports.
Overcoming scheduling difficulties and improving course effectiveness
A law firm in New York City had a need for Mandarin for many of its attorneys, all of whom were intermediate or advanced speakers of the language. The attorneys were all in the same group set up by another foreign language training provider, and there was a disparity in levels. Additionally, scheduling was difficult due to heavy travel schedules. inlingua Metro New York assessed the levels of the attorneys and recommended two groups, an intermediate and an advanced. This helped progress as some had been over-challenged and progress was affected. We also came up with a more practical schedule and system to help those who were traveling to keep up with the classes, and made recommendations for content for lunch discussions in Mandarin.
