Successful managers know investing in their employees pays off, and that’s doubly true when it comes to language skills in a global economy. The need for multi-lingual communications has never been greater, and while there are a lot of sound business reasons for English speakers to learn the language(s) of their clients, it is also true that English continues to be the world’s lingua franca. And it’s not just about language–learning the ins and outs of the business culture and etiquette of the people with whom you’re interacting is vitally important to successful interactions.
TFLI offers customized solutions to meet each of our client’s needs. We can bring a custom class at whatever level(s) are appropriate with emphasis on whatever aspect of language is most important to you (e.g, speaking, understanding, reading, writing, accent reduction), directly to your workplace at a time that fits your employees’ schedule. We can also ensure that we cover specialized vocabulary to suit the organization’s or business’ needs. If it is more convenient, we can host classes at our offices in Metro Center.
Our corporate client list includes Linden Waldorf School, Bridgestone/Firestone, Nissan, Caterpillar Financial, the Predators, Chipotle Grill, Belmont University and Vanderbilt University. We began offering English language courses in 1999, and we are proud to present the most comprehensive, customized and enjoyable English classes available in Nashville. Our teachers are well-trained, professional, and are graduates of TESL@TFLI, TFLI’s certification program in teaching English as a second language.
Custom group classes must have at least three students, and the maximum number is 20. There is a 10-hour minimum commitment required. In general, prices start at $75 per hour; there is also typically a materials cost of $30-50 per student and a placement test fee of $30. Mileage premiums (reimbursement for teacher’s travel) may be assessed for sites outside of the Davidson Country metro area.
For more information or to get started on a custom class, call us at 615-741-7579 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will discuss your needs, the dates you have in mind, and move forward from there.
