IN-COMPANY LANGUAGE COURSES
I MUST ADMIT THE FIRST CLASS I ATTENDED MADE A HUGE IMPRESSION ON ME. I WAS QUITE SCEPTICAL ABOUT LEARNING ENGLISH AT MY CURRENT LEVEL BECAUSE I DIDN’T FEEL THE NEED. HOWEVER, ALREADY IN THE FIRST CLASS, THE TEACHER SHED A COMPLETELY NEW LIGHT ON CERTAIN ISSUES AND MY OLD CONVICTIONS. HE INSPIRED ME TO SEARCH FOR NEW PATHS IN MY PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT.
GROUP CLASSES OFFERED BY BLACKBIRD HAVE BEEN POSITIVELY EVALUATED BY PARTICIPANTS AND HAVE ALSO MET THE EXPECTATIONS FROM THE HR DEPARTMENT AND MANAGERS AT OUR COMPANY.
HR DEPARTMENT, CBRE
Throughout our work, we apply the BlackbirdWay™ methodology, teaching languages effectively and in a goal-oriented manner. This means that we run courses based on materials selected only for you and in accordance with your personal goals. With SMART® goals, learning outcomes are measurable and achievable within a predefined time frame.
English and Polish are the core foreign languages in our portfolio, but we also teach other languages - not only the most popular ones such as German, Italian, French, Spanish, and Russian, but also Turkish, Portuguese, Czech, and Arabic. We run courses in all major cities in Poland, and for our regular clients we can recruit teachers in other locations.
INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP COURSES
Individual courses – for especially demanding students and those who know exactly what they want.
Our corporate clients are most likely to select individual courses for their managerial staff. We are experienced in working with board members and expats representing many cultures from around the world.
Our clients most commonly choose individual courses because they want to be able to:
- individually adapt the schedule and meeting-place to their needs
- focus precisely on what they really need
- adjust the tempo to their preferences and possibilities
- adapt the course to their financial possibilities and schedules thanks to various types of packages (standard, basic, flexible)
Group courses – work best for people starting a new language or people at lower levels who need regularity in acquiring knowledge.
Most effective wherever group dynamics and more interaction are needed.
- We offer your HR team support in coordinating the trainings.
- We help set up key performance indicators for language courses and a list of goals that team members should achieve.
- Team members become linguistically competent for their roles.
- The courses are adapted to your schedule and budgeting thanks to various types of packages.
- We monitor the learning progress (audits + reports + certificates).
- You get the possibility to offer employee benefits.
- You get one supplier for different locations and different languages.
FLEXIBILITY WHEN&WHERE YOU NEED IT
You can choose a package according to the flexibility you need in scheduling:
Standard – if you’re in need of combining flexible scheduling with cost effectiveness
Flexible – if you travel a lot or do not have the option of attending regular classes
Basic – if you have a fixed, predictable schedule or a limited budget.
PRECISE COURSE OBJECTIVES
Our courses are tailored to the objective you want to achieve:
Courses focused on communication in the workplace and general business language, working with case studies and materials developed by your company.
Courses focused on developing general language competences, at the same time developing writing skills, reading, speaking and listening comprehension as well as grammar.
Official confirmation of language skills as part of internationally-recognised exams.
We hire around 100 language teachers, so it would be very difficult to show all of them on our website. If you want to get to know a few more, please email us. In the meantime, meet some of the teachers we have the pleasure to cooperate with:
