One-to-one general language course for professionals

After having carried out a needs analysis of your staff, LSI's educational advisor will then identify any gaps in the student's knowledge of the chosen language. When the results show that the student's general level is below B1, LSI will recommend you to opt for a general language course first.

During the lessons you will develop communication skills which are useful in a vast array of everyday situations in and outside the office. The lessons involve grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation providing not only the necessary basics for communication but also for reading and writing.
 
This course can be given either at your company or at our LSI Brussels language centre.
