Language Training Services
Our model is simple. We craft a solution to fit your exact language needs. We train you to be a successful language learner and speaker. How do we do that? By building a unique, low-stress program for you. But it doesn’t stop there. With over 25,000 hours taught in 2019, we know what we’re doing and are ready to help you.
Meaningful, Authentic, Purposeful
Our language instruction is characterized by a dynamic, energetic style and meaningful application to your emerging needs. LTC instructors bring articles, videos, maps, recipes and countless other context-rich materials into each class to meet your language needs and goals. These authentic materials drive purposeful learning to ensure that your specific goals are achieved.
Our program sets this language learning environment for you, and gives you the tools you need to begin both speaking and understanding your language of study on day one. We achieve this through immersing you in the language. Your instructor will enable you to speak and use your language in every class.
Inquiry Based Learning
We don’t want you to just learn about the target language but to know how to use it. This happens through exploring and discovering how language works. How does this happen? Your instructor works from your specific questions and interests to create effective, meaningful tasks that open your eyes to the “rules” of language. Not only do you gain the linguistic skills you need to communicate, but you also learn strategies that help you continue learning beyond the classroom.
Tailored training is key to language success in a new environment, which is why we absolutely take your needs, goals, and learning styles and craft a customized program to match these. We then carefully select an instructor who can meet your needs. Your instructor, as a highly trained language professional, will further craft his or her teaching style to best fit your language program.
Start With the Known
LTC stands apart for our unique training process. We start with what you know, which could be anything from an alphabet to a handful of phrases. It might even include in-depth cultural knowledge about the region where your language of study is spoken. We use this linguistic information, and we select the process and approach that match your unique learning style and skills.
All students go through an intake meeting before classes start. Here you take language assessments, which measure the four linguistic skills—speaking, listening, reading and writing. We use the findings from these assessments to build a customized curriculum plan tailored specifically for your individual needs. Your instructor will utilize this plan to track your progress as well as to guide your program and to ensure you achieve your learning goals. Between sessions, students receive feedback on their progress as well as in areas that need additional focus.
English as a Second Language (ESL)
English is the second most spoken language in the world and has earned the title of lingua franca in the business world as well as in government. At LTC, we work with clients from around the world with offices in the United States. By offering ESL courses to employees that have relocated or plan to relocate, these companies provide dynamic growth opportunities with curriculums personalized to the needs of their employees. Our students have the opportunity to work closely with a private teacher or in group classes to learn at their own pace. Our B2B English courses provide the convenience of working with a skilled team of teachers and administrators without losing focus on the learner.
THIS YEAR WENT VERY WELL. THE INTERPRETERS WERE THERE ON TIME EVERY DAY AND VERY HELPFUL TO CATHERINE. I DID NOT HAVE TO THINK TWICE ABOUT THEIR SERVICE. THANK YOU.
Thanks Wendy for all your help! You are a terrific manager. What a difference between my GLobal LT experience and working with you!!
Thank you both very much for all you do. This translation project will go incredibly far in informing many of our Veterans and their families, on the important facts and information surrounding our current pandemic.
Anya really understands how to challenge the student (in a positive way) to make the most out of the lesson and get the knowledge into the brain. It is not only a teacher held lesson or monologue, most of the time it´s the student´s turn.
There phone interpretation service is a very easy and convenient service for us to use when we are seeing patients in the office. Douglas Price is a great person there and is very good at communicating with our practice and helping us with anything we need. Great company!
Joseph Sene was an excellent instructor. He was very dedicated to teaching me the language skills I needed for my upcoming assignment.
We meet virtually now. He even gave me a cooking lesson….he tried his best to do it in Japanese but we ended up doing most of it in English 😊. While I may have learned less words, I certainly got to learn how to make tempura!!
Linda was a very supporting and helpful teacher. She connected her way of teaching very well to my questions and needs! She was e very pleasant person and I would definitely recommend her as a language teacher.
When I learned English at school in Germany we had to learn only grammar, unregularly verbs,… And I hate it. I’m still not perfect in german grammar. The lessons with Jeanette are great. We talked so much and for me it is the best way to learn English.
The kids loved Kayla! They didn’t even want to let her go. We are so glad to have her for the kids
The ongoing lessons have helped break up the routine of quarantine and more importantly, a source of learning and personal improvement during these extraordinary times.
On behalf of Freedom House, I would like to sincerely thank you for you and your team’s services today. Your presence helped us to ensure that the event went smoothly and that all of the attendees were able to participate. Thank you so much!
I have had wonderful interpreters from LTC in the past, who have done a great job providing precise and accurate interpretation. Ms. Li, however, goes far above and beyond what is expected. I’m so very grateful for her exceptional service to both this family and to ZCS.
Anya Schwender is highly professional. Her level of English seemed to be perfect for me and she was always able to answer my questions with detailed and helpful explanations.
THE CLASSES HAVE BEEN GREAT. MY KNOWLEDGE HAS INCREASED TENFOLD, THANKS TO MY CLASSES AND PERSONALIZED CURRICULUM.
The sessions with Jane are great! She is a very good teacher. The lesson is structured and very helpful.
Gabi was afraid to tackle speaking, until we just starting talking. She has now put out a yoga video with her speaking English. She will teach this class twice a week.
I WANTED TO TAKE THE TIME TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR AMAZING SERVICES, BOTH TOM AND HAYLEY WERE TREMENDOUS HELP ONSITE AND EVEN PREPPING FOR IT. LOOKING FORWARD TO DOING BUSINESS WITH YOU GUYS IN THE FUTURE.
I am totally satisfied with my English lessons with Hunter. He does a very good job and makes it very interesting.
My first lesson was SOOOOO GREAT!!! Thank you very much for organizing everything. Look forward to my next lesson :)
I really LOVE my Portuguese classes and Juliana is TERRIFIC… I never had a teacher as great as Juliana, she is amazing and it is teaching me not only to talk in Portuguese but also about the Brazilian culture that is helping me a lot to understand the way they communicate…
We are very very happy with Ashley. She always has good ideas to learn for our needs. Especially for my wife it is very helpfull. Cause of the lessons with Ashley she got much more self-confident and talks much more in fluency. Her spoken word gets better with every lesson.
Rebecca is the best english teacher I ever had. I appreciate that she is not focused on a book. I could talk too her about everything.
My first class was very good. I have spoken with Ruth without a stop…;-) I was not scared. Ruth is a great teacher. Really….perfect.
Thank you. I appreciate what you do to help our Company succeed with better communication for our fellow employees.
