Your French language training

Before designing your Business French language training we will carry out a detailed Needs Analysis and level assessment. This allows us to create a course targeting your specific requirements.

Popular areas of business French courses include: making company presentations, participating effectively in meetings, negotiating deals, undertaking successful business trips, writing accurate emails and reports, and improving social and networking language skills.

General and Business Language Training

Recent courses have ranged from hosting French business clients, to leading French sales teams, to preparing for relocating to Paris. Our language training also has the inbuilt flexibility to adapt as new needs emerge at any point during training.

Cross-Cultural Communication Skills

Alongside building French language skills you will develop an understanding of cultural differences and variations, and strategies for building and maintaining professional relationships with international colleagues, partners and clients.

Industry-Specific Language Training

We can provide industry particular vocabulary and language use. We have the experience and expertise to deliver industry specific training in French across many sectors, including finance and banking, law and marketing.
