Apto and Fluency Corp Partnership

The AptoFluency blended solution is the most highly-differentiated of its kind in the language training industry.

Cultural-linguistic training company Apto, and Fluency Corp, a leading language training firm, announce today a channel partnership to offer a fully blended learning solution. The new offering allows learners to interact with real-world, video-based scenarios as well as live instructors for face-to-face training. The blended solution will be part of Apto’s cultural-linguistic training program known as “AptoFluency.” The partnership enhances Apto’s offering, particularly for employees and their families who have relocated to the U.S., and need face to face, customized instruction.

“The AptoFluency blended solution is the most highly-differentiated of its kind in the language training industry,” says Traci Snowden, CEO of Apto. “Now learners have the flexibility to choose how they learn best and focus on content that is relevant to them and their new host community with the added benefit of a live instructor creating a customized curriculum.”

AptoFluency is ideal for employers with multiple locations across the U.S. and offers localized instructors in more than 200 cities and growing. Current corporate training practice provides either e-learning as a stand-alone program that is under-utilized or in-person training that does not provide the desired sustainability and convenience of learning any time and anywhere.

Research shows the optimal learning environment for preparing employees to work in complex cultures requires a blended approach. The evaluation of evidence-based practices concluded that a combination of online and in-person instruction is the most effective process for developing sustainable talent, improving cultural knowledge and communicative skills, not to mention heightened daily performance.    

Fluency Corp has 10 years of experience in language training and clients include Hitachi, Kayak, Google, Samsung and Southwest Airlines. The company is a certified MBE/WBE, 8(a) and HUB enterprise.

Fluency Corp Founder and CEO Micah Bellieu says, “Our partnership with Apto is a logical partnership to offer our clients the convenience of online training with live instruction to put the language into practice, get corrections and continue improving and growing the learner’s confidence when speaking English. It expands our offering to include cultural and language training packages for our clients with personalized goals and curriculum.”
