Interested in offering your employees English classes at the workplace or online? After our initial conversation we’ll schedule a time to meet with management and other interested parties. This initial meeting will last for up to one hour. Here we will discuss the current levels of English language proficiency among your team partners and any issues in communication that you wish to improve. We will also discuss what goals management has for the team partners.
Then we prefer to meet for 15-20 minutes with those team partners that need support with their English language skills.
Once we have gathered all the information and assessed the situation we will send a proposal and a class schedule.
What about the additional services of assessments and consultations?
ESL Cambridge ® is unique in that we offer more than just language classes.
Each project is different, each client has specific needs and goals, and we are creative in our approach to finding solutions and creating content. We are open to discussing any and all projects that will help your team partners improve their English language skills. Solutions will become evident as we discuss and evaluate the potential project.
What about special classes on U.S. culture, idioms, and other content?
We are currently offering a long-term client content that guides their team partners through the preparation for Naturalization.
Yes! We can create a course on most any content.
Can you work with more than one primary language background at a time?
Yes! In fact the more primary language backgrounds you have among your team partners the better as this requires that all use English as their common language.
Is there a limit on how many can attend a class?
For onsite we prefer to limit classes to the size of the room where the classes will be held. If the room comfortably seats 12-16 we are happy to work with that! Note that 16 is a good overall maximum. We require a white board and sufficient, comfortable seating and table space for all in attendance.
For online classes we find it best to limit classes to 12 students.
How long are classes?
For onsite classes a minimum of 1.5-hours to a maximum of 3-hours. But the time is based on your needs and goals, and we can be flexible with scheduling. We also offer day-long workshops .
For online classes 2-hours is the recommended limit.
Are all of your teachers multi-lingual?
No. That’s hardly possible or practical. Classes are conducted in English by native speakers. This model of instruction in English strengthens the communication skills for all in attendance. In many of our projects we’ve had several primary languages in attendance. A recent project included Khmer, Creole, Hindi, French, and Spanish speakers!
What industries can you service?
Interested in offering your employees this great benefit of workplace English lessons? We work with any industry! In the past few years we have worked with a variety of industries including uniform and industrial services, property management, software, and a company that specializes in a unique medical device. We also service the construction industry.
When are classes scheduled and for how many weeks?
For onsite classes some clients have us come in at the end of the workday, others during the workday. We are available every day of the week. Online classes can be scheduled for anytime. Note we our offices are located in the U.S. Eastern Time Zone.
The number of class sessions is based on your goals.
What else should we know?
We work with all sizes of organizations. We’re in our fourth year of providing onsite classes to a publicly-traded company with an international exposure. We’ve also provided classes to a small family-run company and to mid-size companies.
We make this as easy as we can for you and your team. For onsite classes we do our best to not disturb your workday. We arrive, we teach, and then once class is finished, we leave.
