In Company Language Service

Our language service for companies provides a personalized service with high quality and effective training, adapted to your linguistic needs and focused on the development of your employees’ professional skills. Our courses are designed based on a detailed understanding of the client’s needs in order to offer tailor-made training.


We offer face-to-face classes in your company, online courses and bimodal or blended learning (a combination of face-to-face and online). In the last few months we have overcome many new challenges and we  realise that companies need flexible solutions, which combine the benefits of online and face-to-face learning. Online classes can be convenient for those students with limited availability and have many advantages, such as:

  • Communicating with teacher and classmates in real time
  • Watching videos and other relevant resources 
  • Working in pairs or groups
  • Using live chat to ask questions, receive instructions and error correction

If you wish to receive more information or have any queries, can advise you about the best option for your company free of charge.
