LPGA, LANGUAGE TRAINING CENTER EXTEND PARTNERSHIP

LTC TO CONTINUE CROSS-CULTURAL AND LANGUAGE EDUCATION UNIQUE IN PROFESSIONAL SPORTS PLAYERS EMBRACE PROGRAM ON “GOLF’S GLOBAL TOUR”

DAYTONA BEACH, Florida, February 22, 2011 – The LPGA announced today a two-year partnership extension with Language Training Center (LTC) based in Indianapolis, Indiana. The company will continue to assist the LPGA with its language and cultural education efforts through 2012 under the existing LPGA Cross-Cultural Development Program.

As part of the partnership that proved highly successful when introduced last season, LTC will host cross-cultural seminars across the LPGA and LPGA Futures Tours, provide translation and interpretation services, and offer language training programs to LPGA players and staff. The LPGA Tour features the HSBC Women’s Champions tournament this week in Singapore after opening the 2011 season last week in Thailand.

LTC has seen an increase in the number of players using its services and can boast such success stories as rising Korean stars Na Yeon Choi and I.K. Kim further developing their English skills, American Vicky Hurst enhancing her Korean (her mother’s native tongue), and Spanish 2010 rookie sensation Beatriz Recari learning Japanese. Their stories have been documented by The New York Times, Golf World and other media outlets.

“We continue to be impressed with the level of dedication of the LPGA and its players to take the initiative to strengthen and expand their language and cultural efforts,” said Martin George, President of LTC. “We are thrilled to extend our partnership with the LPGA and we look forward to building on the success we experienced last year working with both LPGA and Futures Tour players and staff members.”

LTC is a full service language provider specializing in language training, translation, interpreting, cross-cultural training, interpreter training, international business consulting and language assessment. LTC has adapted its programs to fit the busy lifestyles of LPGA players, working alongside players at tournament sites and via Skype when players are off-site or at home.

“The Language Training Center is an essential component of the LPGA Cross-Cultural Development Program,” said LPGA Chief Communications Officer David Higdon. “Our organizations both share the belief that understanding and embracing cultures and languages is an essential attribute for individuals working and competing in the global community. LPGA players and staff have responded positively to the LTC programs, and we see substantial growth ahead in this partnership.”

The LPGA Cross-Cultural Development Program was developed with an eye toward offering language-based and cross-cultural communication assistance to assist LPGA professionals as they travel on Golf’s Global Tour to compete in front of their fans, media and sponsors. With tournament stops in 13 different nations in 2011, the LPGA and LTC help prepare players and staff to best assimilate into the cultures which they visit, providing additional relevance to fans and sponsors around the world.

Wrote Tim Rosaforte in the LPGA 2011 Preview issue of Golf World (Feb. 7, 2011): “Bridging the communications gap will play a vital role in the LPGA’s success as a global tour, whether reviving U.S. corporate support or building a fan base overseas with two events in Europe and seven in Asia. Communication is vital for these players not only for dealing with the media, but also during pro-ams, the financial backbone of the LPGA business model.”

Overall, I Thought The Course Was Fantastic. I Feel Like I Learned A Lot And Improved Significantly. Astrid Is A Great Professor. She Took The Class Seriously And Made It Enjoyable. She Did A Great Job Of Recognizing Everyone’s Weaknesses And Helping Us Improve On Them. She Focused On Improving Our Grammar While Also Keeping The Class Conversational. The Lessons Were Well Prepared And Focused On Areas We Needed To Learn, Not Just By-The-Book. It Felt Like The Class Was Tailored To The Student’s Abilities. I Am More Than Satisfied.

I Really Have Appreciated The Classes With Nancy – She Is Wonderful Teacher And I Was Very Motivated To Learn More (And Always Felt Badly When I Struggled Because She Inspires One To Want To Be/Do Better). I Am Very Appreciative Of Having Had This Opportunity To Work With All Of You. It Is One Of The Very Best Language Classes I Have Taken In Years.

The instructor [Jeff] taught me not only English but also American culture, history, and food culture. He also gave me advice on getting a driver’s license, buying a car and furniture. Thanks to him, I started jogging and became healthier. He has helped me to make a full start in my new life. Thank you for introducing me to a very wonderful instructor.

The LTC Is The Best English Training Compared To My Previous Language Training Experience Because They Really Understand What I Needed And The Important And Suitable Materials Useful To Apply At My Work. They Give Me Confident To Speak In English And My Writing Is Improving.

Floriana was an absolute delight, and I could not have asked for a better teacher. She was outstanding, well-prepared, adapting course materials to my needs and interests, responsive, caring, dedicated to making course content fit with my context, and most of all a friendly and smiling face every week for someone new in town.

Joseph was an excellent instructor. He was very dedicated to teaching me the language skills I needed for my upcoming assignment.

Student from Government Program

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!!

Patrick (Happy Student in Tokyo)

I’m so grateful to have you interpreting these important and complex issues for our student!

Current ASL Client

Our ENL (English and a New Language) team refers to her as a superhero and it’s no joke—she is truly amazing! Kitty does so much more than just interpret our conferences. She is someone who understands how school works and who can give us important cultural context, which is incredibly valuable.

Director of Student Services

I thoroughly enjoy working with him. He has all the proper material and the patience. our classes are very instructive and he doesn’t waste time.  Alvaro has been really good at being able to construct the pieces and then put them in place so that it all comes together and becomes usable. 

Spanish student

I appreciate you, Anya and Lauren for leading the training. It was very beneficial and I got to immediately use some of the material in my class.

Language Training Workshop Teacher

I cannot express enough great things about this experience. Jeancois was absolutely fantastic- professional, flexible, and dynamic- qualities I have found that some interpreters don’t always demonstrate when working with the pediatric population.

Bilingual Professor

Thank you for organizing these workshops for teachers, we learn so much from each other and grow to be better instructors.

Language Training Instructor

I Hope All Is Well. I Wanted To Follow Up Regarding The Translating Last Weekend. The Gentleman Helping Us Was Fantastic. He Was The Epitome Of Customer Service And Was So Knowledgeable. He Is The Biggest Asset You Have At Your Company.
