Business language courses in 20 different languages
Business Talen Rotterdam BV offers:
Your needs are central to every private language course provided by Business Talen Rotterdam BV. To meet those needs in the best possible way, you will have your own private teacher. This means that every course is tailor made, in other words, a course where the material is adapted to suit your personal needs.
Free introductory lesson
In order to put together a professional course, the teacher needs some information from you. In a free introductory lesson of 1.5 hours the teacher will assess your language skills (if indeed there are any at all in your target language). During this time you can also inform your teacher about your wishes and learning goals.
On the basis of your indications in the free introductory lesson together with your learning needs, the teacher will put together an appropriate course for you. During the course you can put emphasis on the following:
verbal communication (speaking and listening), grammar, pronunciation, reading and writing skills, sentence structure, vocabulary acquisition, state exams. giving presentations, correspondence, writing reports and e-mails, telephone language. business language for international trade, technology, law, finance, accountancy, logistics, insurance, ICT, services, industry, health care, agriculture, industry, etc.
Based on the results of the introductory lesson, the teacher will write an evaluation report in which your various language skills are analysed. In an accompanying level table, ranging from 0 to 10, you can see at which level you currently function. Reference to the European Framework (A1-C2) is possible, of course but, due to it having just 6 levels, there is less differentiation.
The teacher will also advise you on the number of lessons needed to achieve your goal. The report will also be sent to you, so you know where you stand right from the beginning of the course and what the objectives are.
Of course you want to know what results Business Talen Rotterdam BV can guarantee you after completing your course. Assuming that a normal effort is invested into the course, you will always achieve the objectives the teacher indicated as feasible in the introductory evaluation report.
After the course, the teacher will write a final evaluation report in which the final results will be displayed. In the level table you can easily see how many steps you have climbed. This will give you a clear indication of your progress – following a language course at Rotterdam Business Talen Rotterdam BV is a sound investment!
The starting point for all courses is to familiarise you with the foreign language. To this end the teachers speak only in the foreign language and constantly invite you to respond. In these guided conversations the teachers use intonation, phrases, grammatical constructions and speed of speech to suit the level at which you started the course.
You will find that this immersion technique is highly effective: your utterances acquire the appropriate structure and so you will succeed in communicating effectively.
The material used is modern and above all practical. In all courses we work with the latest books, and only after they have been subjected to close scrutiny.
The course includes – at your level – relevant key terminology. By practising this, it will help you to communicate practically from the start. To make the lessons varied and lively, the teacher has access to a large variety of audiovisual aids. This professional equipment, combined with the personalised guidance of your teacher, helps ensure a successful course.
