Case study: French

Among the many CLT clients who have undertaken business French language courses are fruit producers Dolefresh, and IT leaders Oracle and Sungard.

Each French for business language course has been designed to meet the specific objectives of each client, even though their needs are all different.

Although many of our business French courses are taken up by global companies based in London, CLT work throughout the UK and with a wide range of clients. We arranged a special weekly programme of business French training for key members of staff at Organix, a leading manufacturer of organic baby food based in Dorset.

The group needed to boost their language skills in order to communicate effectively when they visited factories and met with Organix development teams in France. Alongside their study of technical and business French, the group learned ‘survival skills’ for travelling such as ordering food and asking directions.

Another local company, Gripple, market-leader of wire joiners and tensioners based in the industrial sector of Sheffield, have been using the language services of CLT for several years, particularly with regard to French language courses for Business. Some of the feedback we have received from clients learning French includes:

“Our French tutor, Marie-Jo, was brilliant! She made sure that the lessons were fun, easy to understand and remained at a pace that was suitable for all. All that we have learnt will aid us greatly in our everyday work.” HR Manager, Frequency Telecom
