Overview of business lessons

Today's challenges
Training and development is #1 on the wish list of employee job perks. A multilingual workforce is win-win: companies benefit from engaged staff, increased employee wellbeing and greater diversity and inclusivity. Teams benefit from wider connections and networks colleagues resulting in innovation and creativity. Individuals improve their communication skills resulting in a positive impact on growth and development.

But IRL examples are just as important: our business language clients can sit next to their CEO and hold an insightful conversation, overcome nerves and give presentations in front of 1,000 people and deal with complex audits in half a billion dollar acquisitions - all in their non-native language.

We achieve this via a hybrid model of:
1. Tailored 1:1/group lessons
2. Technology - cloud-based learning dashboard and app
3. Methodology - needs analysis, assessment, onboarding
4. Real-time progress tracking - quarterly Lab Reports, actionables and milestones
5. Check-ins – dedicated customer success manager
6. Reporting - to key stakeholders.

For individuals
Our language sessions are suitable for students who wish to learn or improve their language knowledge specialising in their chosen industries alongside incorporating a broad overview of general topics. We offer language instruction in modern foreign languages such as English, French and Spanish as well as Mandarin, Russian and Arabic amongst others.

We tutor all levels from beginners to those who have some language knowledge, in which case we'll ensure you've consolidated the foundations so that you can progress to the next Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) level, the internationally-recognised framework for language proficiency.

Classes will focus on terminology used in typical business scenarios including email communication, participating in and giving presentations, video conferences, financial reporting, competitor analysis, forecasting and budgets, LinkedIn updates, news articles, industry magazines, projects, business trips and culture. Whilst we use a textbook to provide structure to lessons, this is supplemented with authentic audio, video and speaking activities so that you reach fluency quicker by putting sentences together, asking questions and understanding answers. Of course, all skillsets of reading, writing, speaking and accent reduction, listening, grammar, verbs and vocabulary will be studied.

For employers
A multilingual workforce provides greater access and expansion into domestic and international markets. Brexit has highlighted the need for companies to engage further with European and global partners, suppliers and counterparts.

Our language lessons have increased students' confidence working with colleagues, partners and their network, enabling them to build greater relationships, overcome challenges quicker and in turn boost stakeholder satisfaction. Speaking more than one language heightens cultural sensitivity and diversity to promote an inclusive work environment and increase collaboration across teams.

Case study

I have had lessons for a couple of years while working for a Spanish company. All I can say is that it has been fantastic! The one-to-one Skype lessons were great. (She) was always accommodating around my schedule and made the classes engaging and topical with current affairs. There were endless amounts of resources for my lessons, but always a perfect mix of understanding the language, reading, writing, listening and speaking to suit the level I was at. I couldn't recommend My Language Lab more highly.

Individual & employer outcomes

Ian, Chief Information Officer, PHS Group plc
(Business Spanish)

I have to say (she) is at a totally different level to any other tutor I had. I have made great progress with her, as she is doing less textbook work and more interactive conversation which suits me down to the ground.

MariLuz, CMO, Rastreator, Spain (Intensive business English)

Thanks to your good level of Spanish, you teach me all kinds of expressions. For the first time I feel like continuing to learn and not despair with English. Skype classes are very comfortable. No doubt highly recommended!!
