Lessons on Skype are typically 1 hour. Lessons in person are 1-2 hours.
Exactly what they need in order to be successful at their job. This depends entirely on the employees’ needs. We discuss with the employee and management to pinpoint the exact needs. These needs could include accent and pronunciation, presentation prep, overall fluency and clarity of expressing ideas, learning jargon, incorporating and understanding more phrasal verbs/idioms, deciphering slang, proper usage of job-specific technical terms, understanding everyday phrases, culture, meeting preparation, confidence-building, email clarity and much more.
This depends on how quickly you want to see results. You can do intensive training of 4+ hours per week, but most employees feel that 2 hours per week is realistic and gives steady progress.
We recommend American Accent Training. We have a superb course that focuses only on what your employee has challenges with, so that every minute in class is spent on his/her communication needs.
We meet conveniently on Skype or Zoom.
YES! This is the core of Fluency Corp. We must always be checking in, meet with you quarterly and always be ensuring that the class is relevant and satisfactory to the learner. We meet with not only the management for feedback, but also the employees the learner works with (if needed) and also the learner. We take great care in 100% uber satisfaction with fluency and communication progress.
We have testing that will give us a CEFR level. This is the universal scale for English levels: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2. B2 is professional proficiency, and C1 and above are native-like. Everyone should be at C1 or above to be able to work easily in an English-only (or other language) speaking environment.
You will be billed monthly. But we can also work with you and your billing needs.
Yes. In order to ensure progress, we need your commitment to the classes. One cannot become Mozart in 10 hours, and neither can we quickly improve our language skills. It is a slow process that we try to speed up as quickly as possible by making the classes always as relevant as possible – that’s why everything is customized and can be applied right away.
If you’ve decided to sign up for a language training program, what exactly can you expect for your employees? Everything about our on-site and online language training program is customized. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to language training if you want to develop fluency and skills specific to the job and industry. What will improve your employee’s ability to function at 100% while at work? We utilize the employee’s upcoming meetings, emails, conference call topics, memos, and workplace common vocabulary in order to be as effective as possible and see immediate growth throughout even the first week in lessons.
We supplement with various books, TV, radio and other MODERN materials that the employee can work with at home, all depending on the needs and interests of the client.
We recommend a minimum of 26 hours of lessons, but see the most results when at least 52+ hours are taken. If you were to take 2 hours a week, that would be 6 months of classes. 90% of our clients take at least 100-200 hours of lessons to get to a native level of speaking, as most start at B2 level (upper intermediate). These 100-200 hours allow employees to polish accent, writing, and clarity of expressing ideas: this is the C1+ level, which allows a high level of confidence communicating at work.
