Language training in Spanish and Portuguese for global managers on the move in Latin America

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 Spanish and Portuguese 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.

Why Spanish and Portuguese training?

  • Managers whose work requires them to make frequent trips to Latin America need language skills for traveling and socializing in the countries they visit.
  • In an increasingly interconnected business world, global managers must communicate with suppliers, clients, and colleagues from many language backgrounds.
  • Trans-national mergers and acquisitions result in a linguistically diverse workforce.
  • Language training can be a powerful recruitment and retention tool, helping high-potential employees develop valuable skills for moving up in the organization.

  • Group program - 60 hours of instruction over 15 weeks, maximum 9 participants
  • One-on-one training - 60 hours of instruction over 15 weeks
