One of the fastest ways to reach a higher level of proficiency is to attend an intensive target language course. Within a week (8 hours per day) or two weeks (4 hours per day) trainees can complete a module accounting for half a level. Thus, a trainee with an initial A2 level will acquire B1 level of proficiency by the end of the (semi-)immersion programme.

It is an experiential training session based on accelerated learning concepts and contextualized use of the acquired language. In the context of this type of interaction, the trainees will practice linguistic structures specific to a particular segment of activity to solve different situations and make decisions. Thus, they will use the target language to send and receive information that is subsequently processed in order to achieve the desired results.
In this type of course, the way in which the participants relate to the learning process changes. Therefore, each course is a unique event where participants are involved in a heuristic dialogue, guided by the trainer. Items of strict linguistic competence (lexical, morphological, syntactic) account for only a part of the objectives of this type of courses because they are used to practice conversational skills, non-formal interactions in a foreign language, processing information from various areas of interest and reporting them to the social, historical and cultural background. Thus, Courses without walls focus on those communication skills addressed only tangentially in business language courses. Courses without walls offer a solution of total immersion into a foreign language with a creative, coherent, personalized and interactive structure, proposing practicing language skills through networking and dialogue.

Agile learning is an alternative programme that requires access to an online platform, as well as face-to-face meetings with the assigned trainer.

Interesting topics and interactive exercises urge the trainees to study on their own, online, either at work or at home.

Immediate benefits:

  • Applied learning of the written and spoken communication rules (in emails, business meetings, presentations and conferences, negotiations, etc)
  • Performing tasks specific to their department: accountancy or financial sector, public relations or HR, marketing and advertising, legal or sales and acquisitions
  • Pleasantly eliminating language barriers in communicating with partners or suppliers from the global business environment
