While some U.S. cities are only now taking their place on the global scene, Washington, D.C., has long been one of the most influential and international cities in the world.
As the center of U.S. government, Washington draws expats from around the world. As just one example, consider the diplomatic presence in the District. There are more than 175 foreign embassies, residences, chanceries and diplomatic missions.
Of Washington’s more than 702,000 residents, over 94,000 are foreign born. Common foreign languages spoken in Washington include Spanish, French and Afro-Asiatic languages.
Washington, D.C., is often considered part of a single metro area with Baltimore, Maryland, and Arlington, Virginia. The area as a whole has a population of more than 9.8 million people, and it also includes parts of West Virginia and Pennsylvania.
Besides the federal government and government-related entities, the Washington, D.C., area has many other employers with a global presence. They include Lockheed Martin, Danaher Corporation, General Dynamics and Northrop Grumman. Hospitality companies based in the area include Marriott International and Hilton Worldwide.
Thanks to the presence of the federal government and top global employers, there’s a big need for language training in the Washington, D.C., area — and no shortage of options for receiving that training. However, with the second-worst commute times in the nation, getting to a language school in the Washington area might be no easy task.
That’s what makes Fluency Corp such a great option for language learners and employers who need to offer language training. We offer language classes onsite at workplaces throughout the Washington area. Your language learners will never have to sit in that notorious D.C. traffic just to get to their classes.
Need even more flexibility? Fluency Corp classes are also available online to accommodate any schedule and any language training need.
Both onsite and online classes are presented in-person by instructors who are native speakers of the language being taught. This is the most efficient way to get students up to speed in using their second language for business.
We also customize all language training to learners’ individual needs. There are no cookie-cutter lessons here. Class time focuses on the specialized vocabulary students will need to hold everyday conversations as part of their jobs.
