A Practical Approach

Our courses employ the ELAM method involving a structured and systematic acquisition of language which you are immediately “trained” to use in a verbal, practical and functional way. This method aims to produce confident oral and aural fluency and essentially through constant usage, is designed to facilitate long term memory retention in adult learners.

Inter Cultural Training

“Working Effectively Across Cultures” – The focus of this briefing is to provide an insight into the differing cultural models found across Europe, Asia Pacific, Africa and the Americas and to enable participants, through understanding and acceptance of other sets of norms and values, to work ever more effectively with colleagues or customers from different cultures.

This Cultural workshop blends practical theory, tips and techniques with case studies and “summary action” ideas to help you in your day to day work and understanding of the differences in cultures across your international business network.
