1. Courses with e-learning

Courses with e-learning preparation are suitable for anyone, from beginners to advanced, who wants to improve their linguistic skills, using a method that is structured and progressive.

This method can be used by individuals or small groups, in face-to-face or distance training.

This type of course, combining independent e-learning preparation and guided practical application with a trainer, promotes rapid progress in linguistic skills.

E-learning preparation

Independent learning of grammar, vocabulary, language functions and development of oral and written comprehension.

Lessons with a trainer

The lesson with the trainer is an important opportunity to put into practice the skills acquired in the e-learning.

Advantages

Gain confidence
By working in tandem with the e-learning course, the learner gains self-confidence to express him/herself better in class.

Active participation
By freeing the course from preparation exercises, we optimise speaking time and active participation with the coach.

Put into practice
The skills are presented for the first time in e-learning, they are put into practice in class and come back later in the training for a better assimilation.

Significant progression
The learner progresses on average twice as fast as in a traditional method given the asynchronous investment in e-learning in addition to the actual practice.

2. Individual and group courses

Individual and group courses are designed to help learners, whether beginners or advanced, to develop their professional and language skills.

The skills needed for successfully working in a foreign language are enhanced over time. Step by step, the learner acquires new skills and consolidates what they have learned.

Our pedagogical resources

Intercountry has developed a range of pedagogical resources consisting of thousands of different activities that complement our communicative approach. Each trainer selects the ones most suited to the needs and objectives of their learners, to create a training course that is completely individual. This ability to be individual means we can offer courses focused on specific professions and job functions, or on a specific professional context.

Our trainers can use the learner's own professional documents to lead training sessions: preparing a presentation, improving support materials, writing a report, etc.

Advantages

Tailor-made : according to your linguistic and professional needs

Progressive : a structured learning path for optimal language acquisition

In context : link between the training activities and real-life language requirements

3. Coaching

Coaching is for anyone with intermediate to advanced level language skills, who needs help dealing with specific professional situations using a foreign language.

A dedicated coach helps the learner to meet their challenges and improve their performance. The course is entirely based on the learner's context and objectives.

Our coaches

Coaching courses are carried out by Intercountry's most experienced trainers. As well as extensive pedagogical skills, our coaches have experience in various professional contexts. They are bilingual and their understanding of the subtleties of both languages can help learners facing key professional situations. Coaching goes beyond the time spent with the coach, it is designed to be a real support system, offering last minute editing and advice before a business meeting if needed. The coach is always available to help the learner.

Content

Unlike classic lessons, coaching is a program that is 100% focused on preparing for an intervention (presentation, interview, important meeting, negotiation, etc.). Although the objective is focused on the success of the intervention, the coaching is also an opportunity for the learner to progress in their mastery of the language.

The coach uses documents from the learner (presentation, agenda, report, etc.) to prepare for the session. The content of the session is entirely focused on the practice and repetition of the project. The coach also plays the role of an audience or another participant in the meeting by asking questions and seeking clarification in order to verify that the participant is responsive and comfortable in his expression and understanding. The aim is to provide the participant with full and constructive feedback.

Advantages

We offer help with projects of strategic importance to the company.

We design our intervention to improve professional performance as quickly and effectively as possible.

Coaching offers a direct return on expectations because it is configured around a specific event and its success.

Coaching is designed to help face specific professional challenges with confidence.

4. Conversation courses

Learners are encouraged to speak English freely on a current event topic: business, sport, leisure, travel, lifestyles, culture, society, technology, etc.

Intercountry's trainers create a friendly and helpful atmosphere which encourages everyone to express themselves.

As a rule, we use articles or videos to prepare for these conversations.

Before the conversation

The learner finds out about the different topics of conversation. They are encouraged to read articles or watch videos to think about the topic from several angles and form their own point of view.

During the conversation

The learners form the heart of the conversation, the trainer's role is simply to begin the debate, encourage everyone to talk and structure the discussion.

After the conversation

The trainer writes a synthesis of the main points discussed along with grammar and key vocabulary.

5. Intensive weeks

The objective of our intensive training courses is for learners to have a positive experience of a foreign language and very quickly feel at ease in international situations.

These intensive courses are designed to give participants that 'click' which will make them more self-confident and willing to try, and so become better able to manage the situations they find themselves in, and to quickly transform their passive knowledge into active usage.

Our approach

We give participants the chance to meet a number of trainers from different countries where the language being taught is spoken. This gives them the opportunity to learn about cultural differences and experience different accents. Each trainer has a specific role to play in the varied and interactive activities that make up the training course, always ensuring the training atmosphere is friendly and helpful.

The five-day programme is carefully planned. At the end of each day the skills that have been covered are reviewed to ensure they have been well understood. During the last day, to ensure they can use all the skills that have been covered and help with the end of training assessment, the learners participate in a variety of situations that put them to the test.

Significantly improve the ability to listen, interact and speak in a multi-cultural context.

Be more effective in meetings, telephone conferences, negotiations and other discussions.

Be able to cope and communicate in key situations.

Create and present clear presentations, and reply confidently to questions.

Feel at ease taking part in social situations that are a part of professional life, and able to manage everyday activities.

Review and strengthen fundamental grammatical structures and use them more instinctively.

Use a wider vocabulary in order to communicate more precisely.

Learn in a fun and dynamic environment thanks to our digital interactive whiteboards.

In France

In France our intensive weeks are organised in our training centres in the heart of Paris and Bordeaux. They are easy to reach using public transport. Each day participants eat lunch with a trainer in different restaurants near the training centres.

In England

In London, our immersion weeks take place in a partner training centre in the heart of the city. In addition, we can help participants find accommodation in hotels or with host families.

6. Language workshops

These workshops are designed for people who would like a short, targeted training course, to improve and fine-tune transversal professional skills and their capacity to interact with a group.

We cover a large range of professional themes which are targeted on improving skills such as efficiency in meetings, giving better presentations, visioconferences, writing, negotiation, etc.

The workshops offer a language immersion in a specific context. Participants make rapid progress thanks to carefully planned interactive activities that concentrate on oral skills: spontaneity, improving the use of professional terminology, gaining self-confidence, etc.
