Beverly Hills, California (PRWEB) October 07, 2011
Following successful completion of a two-year pilot test with business English learners from China, Russia, France and Portugal, HumanEnglish is pleased to announce the global launch of its live online Business English training services.
Now business owners, executives, managers and professionals around the world can improve their English communication skills face-to-face with highly qualified English trainers without travelling to English-speaking countries or commuting to local language schools.
HumanEnglish only employs highly qualified trainers that are both certified as English teachers and have the experience working in the business world.
HumanEnglish offers several advantages over traditional, offline business English courses. Being held online, clients can learn from any place in the world on their own schedule.
Additionally, HumanEnglish developed error-capturing software that allows trainers to collect learner errors in real time and address them in future sessions. At the end of each live session learners receive personal feedback, self-study guidance and an MP3 audio recording of their lesson for later review.
The trainer-led online business English courses have been designed to give learners practical English skills and enable them to communicate confidently in real-world situations.
HumanEnglish also offers accelerated intensive business English courses designed to quickly prepare learners for meetings, conferences and other business situations.
In addition to offering standard courses, HumanEnglish can design custom training programs for a variety of projects or job-functions.
All courses have the following features in common:
- designed to help learners communicate in real-world business situations
- delivered online, in real time by qualified trainers, native speakers of English
- tailored to learners’ goals and schedules
- learners receive personalized feedback, self-study guidance and audio recordings of their lessons
- technical support via phone, Skype and email
The courses can be taken privately or in small-groups. A broadband Internet connection is required.
Learners can visit http://www.HumanEnglish.com to register for a consultation or to request a free demo lesson.
A Concern for Quality
“From the very beginning we wanted to design a service that would take the proven features and best practices used in the traditional, offline setting and improve upon them with the technology available to us today”, said Anton Pereiaslavtsev, Co-founder and CEO of HumanEnglish.
HumanEnglish uses a time-tested communicative, task-based approach to teaching which emphasises the learner’s ability to communicate in real-world situations over the ability to memorize prescribed language rules.
“We have achieved this goal by developing lesson materials and software tools specifically for the live online learning environment. From discovering the specific needs of learners, through course-planning and lesson feedback we have leveraged the latest available technology to create a seamless learning experience. Learners tell us that the learning experience is so natural that they often forget that they are learning with a trainer on the other side of the world”, continued Tony Winn, Co-founder and Academic Director at HumanEnglish.
“I like that I can clearly hear and see my trainer’s video. I can see examples of the language I don’t understand on the virtual whiteboard. The feedback reports and the audio recordings I get at the end of each lesson help me remember what I learn during class. Learning with HumanEnglish has been surprisingly natural, saved me a lot of time and overall was more effective than the offline English courses I took in the past”, said Vincent Ribouleau of Nymphea Environnement, a French waterworks company and a client of HumanEnglish.
HumanEnglish provides high quality courses designed to help business professionals from around the world improve their English communication skills face-to-face with qualified and experienced English language instructors from the English-speaking world. HumanEnglish is headquartered in Beverly Hills, California and has team members located around the world. HumanEnglish was co-founded by Anton Pereiaslavtsev, Tony Winn and Alexey Bizikin.
Today’s launch is the culmination of an 18-month collaboration between a team of English language experts and software engineers who completed a successful two-year pilot test of its service with English learners from France, Russia, Portugal and China.
