Language is at the heart of our business. We believe that language learning should be about both acquiring the language skills and developing your cultural awareness.
Optima’s approach to language training for business not only combines language and culture but targets specific business objectives. We seek to create an awareness of the cultural sensitivities relevant to the target language in the context of your own business situation. For example, learning German to make effective sales is more likely to improve company performance when you also have an understanding of contextualised selling techniques and German attitudes to business.
There are many reasons for learning a language: personal development, career progression or to improve the effectiveness of your business in overseas markets. There are also as many different learning styles as there are language learning needs. We provide the language courses and training that is right for you, not the other way around.
Before choosing language training, you should first look at the needs of your organisation. We can support you by providing a language audit, which will help to identify any existing skills, gaps and priority areas. We will also conduct an assessment of existing language skills and learning styles to allow us to design the best possible language training solution. After engaging with you to establish the needs of the business and appropriate language learning strategies, we will propose a solution. If we are not confident that we can meet your requirements, we will make recommendations for alternative options or providers.
