English for IT professionals.

If you work in IT, you often need to use English, for example with all those international colleagues or your partners abroad. Many companies aim to offer their support services in English. But this does mean you need a good command of English.

    Could this be for you?

    If you work in IT or are preparing for a job in the IT sector, or perhaps even a career abroad.

    You already have command of English to a good intermediary level. That means you speak effortlessly and can function well in a range of situations. However, you still don’t manage to have the same impact when talking to clients as in your native language. Don’t worry! We will improve your English in areas tailored to your job and what you need to be able to do. Your product, clients and discussions form the basis for the training.

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!
