About French
for managers.

As a manager, you have a wide range of skills. You excel at client-oriented communication, giving presentations, preparing financial reports, giving feedback, showing empathy, being persuasive, chairing meetings, networking and giving advice ... in your native language. But are you equally good at this in French?

Iets voor jou?

Could this be for you?

If you currently work as a manager or have ambitions in that direction, choose our course in ‘French for Managers’ to make sure you can communicate effortlessly with French-speaking clients, suppliers or team members.

You currently have command of French to a good intermediary level. That means you speak effortlessly and can function well in a range of situations. However, you still don’t have the same impact when communicating with clients or team members in French as in your native language. Boost your command of French in areas tailored to your job and the associated requirements. Your product, clients and discussions form the basis for the training.

Testimonials

Wat onze klanten, trainers en cursisten zeggen.

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.

Christiam Gasparini, Marketing manager at ON SEMICONDUCTOR

“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.”

Yves Zinggeler,CEO of Amgen Benelux

“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!”

Catherine Poissonnier,Business manager at Improve

“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.”

Steven De Winter,HR officer at Reynaers Aluminium

“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.”

Mario Muylle,Managing Director at Dovy Keukens

“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!”

Gianni De Muynck,Spokesperson at Axa Belgium

“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.”

Benoit Van Elst,Key Account Manager for DIY at Unilin
