Your ideal language learning mix

About appraisal interviews in English.

Conducting appraisal or job performance interviews requires a sensitive touch. You may have delicate messages. This could be a familiar issue too if you have a coaching role that requires you to give a lot of feedback. That can be a challenge even in your native language.

Are you equally good at deploying your communication skills in English?

    Could this be for you?

    You already have command of English to an intermediary level. That means you already speak English reasonably effortlessly in familiar situations. But you want to learn how to communicate unambiguously, openly and with respect in English as well. It is not always easy to give feedback, especially if you have to do so in a foreign language. You need to be able to introduce nuances in your message and to formulate the right questions while maintaining clarity and avoiding confusion.

TESTIMONIALS

What our clients, trainers and trainees say.

At first, I was hesitant towards virtual learning formats like distance learning, probably because it is intimidating to be alone with a teacher in a virtual classroom. Now, I am happy with my choice to go digital! I have significantly improved my level of English in a short period of time. Indeed, this tailor-made language course took my current language level into account, as well as my objectives and personal job context. Our lessons focussed on my linguistic shortcomings. And when necessary, I could ask my teacher Jacques for additional exercises on certain subjects.
Tailor-made online language course
Working virtually enables me to do it from the comfort of my home. Talking to a teacher who is, in turn, at her home makes it easier to ask silly question we normally do not dare to ask. Having private lessons helps me learn faster and with the best results, so that I can communicate effectively not only at work but in informal situations too.

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!

As a foreigner who recently began working in the public sector in Belgium, and being a native French speaker, I believe it's crucial to make an effort to learn the mother tongues of other countries. MY BLCC language courses were highly effective, with support materials specifically tailored to my profile. I now find myself comfortably engaging in conversations with colleagues from Flanders in Dutch, even if we occasionally switch to another language later on due to my occasional gaps in vocabulary.
I now find myself comfortably engaging in conversations with colleagues.
I've been with BLCC for over 4 years, but my journey actually began during university when I had a summer job here. Even then, as a student worker, I felt like a valued part of the team. After graduating, I applied for a job and was thrilled to join a company that shares my passion for languages. Since then, my role at BLCC has grown alongside me. I started as an account coordinator, managing language training courses from start to finish. When I expressed interest in a more commercial role, BLCC supported my goals and guided me in the right direction. BLCC is a small company with big dreams, emphasizing excellence, empathy with clients and trainers, and a strong entrepreneurial spirit. In return, BLCC provides a trusting environment, professional growth, flexible work arrangements, and a comfortable setting that feels like home. Proud to be part of this team!
Jody Dewancker - Training Advisor
My time at BLCC has been truly remarkable so far. The bright and learner-centered environment fostered my personal growth, while the challenging tasks pulled me to excel. Also the charismatic team made each day a joy to be at work. I am incredibly excited about what more the future holds!
Liesbeth Maes- Project Manager
I’ve been working as a coordinator at BLCC since april and it has been a fantasic experience. The team is not just great; they're exceptional in their work ethics and teamwork. The flexibility in working hours is a game-changer, allowing for an optimal work-life balance. I'm grateful to be part of this dynamic and accommodating work environment.
