Language Training for Businesses

Flexible and Effective Language Training for Businesses

It’s no secret that being multilingual is essential in today’s corporate world. Have you always dreamt of speaking English, French or even Mandarin?

For your corporate training needs, Prolang offers a multitude of options to help your workforce learn and improve essential skills. Our experienced team members will help you determine your specific goals to plan out the best language program possible for your company. 

Private Language Classes

The private language course is best described as accelerated learning. The one-on-one training allows for tailored content, ensuring that the teacher focuses on the specific needs of the student.

Private language classes are the best option if you need a flexible schedule. Whether it be for writing, grammar or pronunciation, our teachers are equipped to help employees progress where they need it most. You never move to slow, or too fast: the teacher adapts to your pace and needs, always making sure to maximise your speaking time. 

Semi-Private Classes

The semi-private option is great for two people who share similar language learning objectives.

Together, students will benefit from exchange learning where they will be asked to work in a team to reach their goals. Because the class is very small, it allows for tailored teaching, greatly benefiting both learners.

Group Classes

The ideal group classes range from 3 to 7 students and are a perfect environment for collaborative learning.

The groups are small enough to ensure students get personal attention from teachers but are also large enough to promote discussion and educational activities.

Intensive Classes

If you need a language training boot camp, then the Intensive option is for you. In an ideal situation, the best way to learn a language is through intensive learning.

If you need to brush up or practice certain points before a conference or a big presentation, you can count on our professional teachers to help and coach you. These classes can be offered in private, semi-private or group classes of the same level.

AM   3 hours of class with your first teacher

Lunch   1 hour with your teacher

PM   3 hours of class with your second teacher

Study with international students!

If you’re interested in taking intensive classes, and would also like to learn among international students, your best choice would be to study at ALI . Choose between 20, 25, or 30-hour weeks.

Telephone Language Classes

Perfect for the person who needs to communicate in a second language on the phone, or simply to support live language training, Phone classes are a great way to perfect listening and speaking skills through auditory learning.
