Global Language Training Programs

As the automotive industry continues to globalize, being able to communicate with your foreign colleagues, partners, suppliers or customers in their own language, even at a rudimentary level, is not just a nice skill to have, but a business necessity for building strong partnerships.”

Bhaskar Pant - managing director of World Learning for Business in conjunction with its Global Expert partner World Learning for Business offers language training in customized, small-group or one-on-one intensive programs.

Training is delivered at client sites and is designed to boost participants' language communication skills in the context of pre-identified job-related tasks.

For certain languages, WLfB also offers full immersion training in native-speaking settings for those requiring an accelerated program.

WLfB offers language-training programs in a variety of languages including English as a Second Language, Chinese, German, Spanish, Portuguese, French, and many others.
