Why have an English language course at your company?
You may have considered going to a physical language school rather than taking classes at your company. However, classes at your company have several key benefits:
· Monitor attendance
If you’re in charge of setting up English classes for your staff, you will be able to see that everyone is going to class because it’s on your premises.
· Save time
You don’t have to waste time travelling anywhere. In fact, many people who go to a traditional language school spend up to an hour going to and from class.
· Cheaper classes
We have a small administrative office so we don’t have our own classrooms. This means we save money and we pass this saving on to you.
· Know your classmates
If you a choose group language course at your company, you will be studying with your own colleagues. Accordingly, you are likely to have similar objectives.
What The Experts Say
Report: Why English Skills Matter at Work
This article in the Harvard Business Review highlights problems companies can face if staff don’t speak good English.
- Staff avoid meetings in English, keep silent and don’t realise when they haven’t understood.
- Employees separate into groups of their own language at work and so create divisions.
- Cultural misunderstandings and friction can occur.
These issues can clearly be avoided through training in English language and culture.
