Flexible language training
Your personal Language Learning Mix
Give your career
a real boost.
Every year, BLCC organises more than two thousand language courses. The best thing about them is no two courses are the same. Choose a course based on what you want to learn, your language proficiency, your professional context and much more. You can put together the perfect Language Learning Mix for your needs. One size fits all? Not at BLCC! Put together your personal language solution based on how and what you want to learn.
Do you prefer on-site sessions or remote sessions?
Would you like to meet your trainer in person or would you rather start quickly with a flexible schedule? You can opt for personal contact or a virtual training programme depending on your preferences. Whatever you choose, you may be sure of assistance that always goes at your pace.
How much emphasis do you want on e-learning?
Do you want to start on your own and then practise with your trainer? Or are you looking for more assistance and support? Determine the mix of e-learning and coaching sessions that works best for you.
A focus on language or a bridge to business skills?
Are you a beginner getting to grips with a particular language for the first time? Or can you already speak the language and are you looking to improve your communication skills more generally? Learn to make an impact — and make huge improvements to your language skills.
Individual training, group training or a combination?
An individual course is appropriate if you are the only person in your company doing language training. But you can also have lessons as a group with your colleagues, even if you all have somewhat different goals. With an optimum mix of group sessions and individual supervision, you get the best results.
Do you want general language skills or skills for a specific professional purpose?
Sometimes you want to master a language for a distinct situation. So you want to focus on the relevant vocabulary. You want to be able to give a presentation, use the key phrases that make you better at your job or send faultless professional e-mails. Your training programme will be designed to meet these professional needs.

What our clients,
Virtual learning is very efficient as it can flexibly adapt both to work and private schedules. Despite being undoubtedly the future of training, it is true that this form requires motivation and self-discipline in order to be effective. Because of the lack of fixed timeslots and usually the absence of classmates, one might have the tendency to skip sessions and therefore lose pace. To avoid this, motivation can be boosted up by tailoring the learning content upon items that you really need, that you truly like, and that help improve your skills. My personal experience with the BLCC courses is very positive, having followed German classes for several years and I can express my full satisfaction about the teachers’ professionalism and competence.
“I find it important to speak the language of the country where I’m working so I can hold a simple conversation in that language with my employees. My language teacher is very professional. She adapts the lessons to suit my learning style.”
“Melanie taught me English, with an exclusive focus on my professional field. That means I am now able to do my coaching sessions in Manchester as well. Even my friends and colleagues soon noticed a big improvement in my English!”
“I feel much more comfortable now when on the phone. I can express myself more fluently in French as well when giving presentations and I no longer worry so much about the mistakes I make.”
“I was looking for a course that focused on speaking, in the sales context rather than general speaking skills. BLCC listened perfectly to my specific requirements. The trainer was very knowledgeable.”
“I have regular lessons via Skype and I’m already reaping benefits from those lessons. I recently advanced one level. My French has genuinely improved: I notice the difference in my contact with colleagues, clients and journalists. I’d give BLCC an 11 out of 10!”
“I did a German course for my job, but I found learning German an enriching experience personally as well. What I liked most about the BLCC training was the trainer’s personal touch. She focused completely on my requirements and wishes.”
