Some of the biggest names in international business call Atlanta, Georgia, home. Major players in the local economy include The Coca-Cola Company, The Home Depot, United Parcel Service, Delta Air Lines, AT&T Mobility and Newell Rubbermaid.
But it isn’t just business that’s making Atlanta a global city. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is the busiest airport in the world, with nearly 300,000 passengers passing through it each day. Atlanta is also an emerging entertainment center. Tyler Perry Studios just opened a massive complex there. Universities attract students from all over the world to Atlanta. The Georgia Institute of Technology, for example, boasts almost 4,000 international students each year.
Recently the Atlanta area has become a “new immigrant gateway” in the U.S. The U.S. Census has found growing foreign populations in the counties around the Georgia capital. Almost 15% of residents of the sprawling Atlanta metro area are foreign born. Mexico is the top country of origin for foreign-born Atlanta residents, followed by India.
As the world comes to Atlanta, and as the city’s thriving economy makes an impact on the global stage, corporate language training becomes more in demand. Is your company seeking customized and practical language training for employees who are relocating to or from the U.S. Are you interested in accent reduction programs for U.S.-based employees from other countries? Fluency Corp can work with you to tailor a solution that suits your needs.
Perhaps you’ve been hesitating to offer English classes or other language programs for Atlanta employees because you’ve believed that it will be too great of an inconvenience for them. After all, in a metro area where the average commute is close to an hour one way, you probably don’t want to ask employees to drive anymore than they already are.
But when you work with Fluency Corp, you don’t have to burden your employees with having to go offsite for English language classes or other language programs. We come to you, through either online language instruction or onsite programs (office, home, local library) all over the Atlanta area.
No matter which option you choose, your employees will always work with a live instructor. That’s because there’s simply no better way to learn a new language, polish skills in a second language or improve your accent. Your employees will enjoy plenty of practical conversational practice with their language instructors, which gets them ready for the real-life scenarios they encounter in the workplace.
If you’re relocating employees to the Atlanta area, that means you’re also relocating their family. Fluency Corp knows that the whole family must assimilate in order for the relocation to be a success. That’s why we curate English courses for spouses and children also. Kids need homework support, and spouses need to get confident in English in order to talk to teachers, go to the doctor, get around the grocery store, and so much more. We don’t just get your employees and their families fluent. We make sure they feel at home in Atlanta.
Just like our founder wanted, Fluency Corp instructors become your employees’ guides to Atlanta’s rich local culture, a friend that not only gets employees speaking more clearly, but also helps them and their families assimilate to their new country and city. From the sites associated with Martin Luther King Jr. to the High Museum, the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum to the BeltLine, there’s so much to explore.
