Private Crash Courses

We offer unique courses tailored to meet your special needs in order to learn as much as possible in a small amount of time.

Our courses can either take place in our Pittsburgh center or on your premises. We also offer online courses designed to meet your learning interests and goals. This gives you the opportunity to study at your own pace and accommodate your busy lifestyle.

Our goal is to provide you with the necessary language skills in a fast and accurate manor. We will prepare you with the reliable skills needed for your daily business and lifestyle objectives. For example, if you are faced with your first business trip to a foreign country, we would propose a one-week crash course:

  • 1 day of language basics – Greetings and introductions
  • 1 day of intercultural training – so there are no misunderstandings
  • 2.5 days of language refresher
  • ½ day of role-playing and consolidation of new information and materials

Immigrating to a foreign country

Another example is a crash course especially designed for you in case you are immigrating to a foreign country and want to improve not only your language skills but also your knowledge of everyday life in your new community. Standard topics would be:

  • Finding a new home
  • Understanding menus
  • Shopping
  • Renting a car
  • Discovering your new neighborhood
  • Taking care of your children’s needs

New position or job

A crash course can also be proposed in case you have been given a new position or job with a mandatory foreign language. For instance, you attended a language course years ago but never had any opportunity to use what you learned. In this type of course you will not only polish up on your language skills but also learn important intercultural aspects which will help you deal with your new job more efficiently.

These courses are available in English, Spanish, Italian, French, German and Portuguese.
Other languages can be available upon request.
