Expat: noun a person who lives outside his or her native country.

Our CEO and Founder, Micah Bellieu, was an expat herself; she took a job in Mexico in 2008 and her Spanish was not great. How was she to work, let alone, live, in a country where everything including the language, was foreign and new to her?

We serve expats for this reason. We understand what it’s like to arrive in a new country, for a new job, with your family or on your own, knowing that you will now have to be working and living in your 2nd language. The expat life is a challenging one.

Leading the charge of guiding your employees into the expat life? Even though you have adequately prepared your employees for the relocation, perhaps even with years of 2nd language classes that proved sufficient up until now, they will still need real support during the first year or more.

Language training and assimilation help is not a perk; it is a crucial component of international relocation programs.

A Fluency Language Coach Will

  • Meet with your employees on a regular basis to practice speaking with confidence
  • Help them prepare to speak in meetings and conference calls
  • Improve email communication
  • Get them accustomed to the local way of speaking, the accent, the culture
  • Clear up accent and pronunciation
  • Design a curriculum for every employee you have, their spouses and their children, based on exactly what their needs are
  • Assist children with schoolwork, discuss cultural differences, and guide them through assimilation and making friends in the community
  • Aid the spouse in making a new life, prepare for interviews, and answer questions about the new neighborhood and city

We do not sell off-the-shelf classes that have no relevance for your employees and their families.
