Reed International contacted us to help one of their employees to improve his Korean language skills. Geoff is a senior executive at the company who travels regularly to Seoul on business. He already had some latent knowledge of Korean and asked Unique to design a course that would improve his business Korean and help him in meetings and negotiations.
Unique Language Training works with arguably the best group of language teachers in Europe. We recruit widely and all tutors undergo a rigorous round of interviews which involve talking to the management team and taking trial classes to ensure their suitability for language teaching with some of the most successful organisations and people in the world.
We talked through with Geoff what his goals from the classes were and then in consultation with him, his manager, our tutor and the Head of Language Training, we designed a course specifcially for him We realise that the old group classes of the past are no longer relevant in this bespoke world. We know that if you want to meet your targets and learn a language, you have to study in a private setting.
Korean Language Course:
Each class took place on weekday afternoons at the Reed offices in Victoria in central London. Having worked with many successful individuals, we know that time is at a premium - which is why we visit you rather than you taking the time to visit us.
The teacher built each class around a particular topic relating to Geoff's work. One day, the focus was on business meetings while another lesson developed Geoff's presentation skills and the cultural awareness of speaking to Koreans.
