Face-to-face training

In face-to-face training your trainer works with you on-site to analyse, identify and develop a joint curriculum and learning objectives (see learning cycle diagram above). This approach enables a real-time, dynamic learning process as well as encouraging peer group learning. Questions, responses and feedback are immediate. This type of training can also be held virtually, as a webinar or via Skype.

Online training

Online training using our Learning Management System provides learners with an online classroom that offers access to their learning materials anytime, anywhere. Learners communicate with their trainers either virtually in video conferences or webinars, or in a blended approach that combines online with face-to-face training.

The CEF levels (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) describe what a language learner "can do" and are the basis of all our training.
