“I enjoyed that the learning focused on actually using the language in daily life rather than just solely focusing on exact proper grammar.”

In-person, or Online?

Our Workplace Spanish lessons can be delivered in many different ways:

  • face-to-face group or individual Spanish classes in our school in Northampton
  • face-to-face Spanish classes in your organization, or in a venue you rent for the purpose if you are within 30 miles of Northampton, MA.
  • live online group or individual classes which take place on Zoom

In-person, Face-to-Face Corporate Spanish classes in Northampton, Massachusetts

By coming to our school in downtown Northampton for your company’s Spanish classes, you leave the office behind and step into a space which is all about language learning, giving you more of an immersive experience than you’ll get in the office.

We’re just a few minutes’ walk from the Roundhouse parking lot and the Peter Pan Bus Terminal (Peter Pan line, R42, R44).

In-person classes may be more representative of the kinds of real-life situations you might find yourself in when you’re speaking Spanish in the future. Plus you get to encounter our lovely team and meet other students. There’s every chance you might bump into other native Spanish speakers that you can practice with!

In-person, Face-to-Face in-company Spanish classes

If you have a lot of people to train in Spanish, or if you would struggle to come to Spanish class and then get back to work, it makes a lot of sense for one of our Spanish teachers to come to you.

Tell us where you are based when you get in touch with us, and we’ll give you an indication of what it will take for us to get your teacher to you for your weekly Spanish lessons.

There is, of course, a risk that by having classes in one of your company’s meeting rooms, that you’re going to get disturbed by colleagues who don’t appreciate what’s going on. Don’t worry – we’ll talk to you about what you can do to minimise disruption when you’re attending Spanish classes in your own workplace!

Online Group Spanish classes with ILI

If you need to slot your Spanish classes into a busy meeting schedule, then maybe an online Spanish class is the way to go. All of our online workplace Spanish classes will take place with a real teacher, in real time – so it is very much the same as being there in person.

This online format is also brilliant if you have colleagues in other states or other countries who would like to join in. Northampton, Massachusetts is in the Eastern Time Zone (ET) and observes daylight saving time (DST).

You team can join our online group Spanish lessons from anywhere in the world, so long as you’re comfortable with the regular times the classes run. You can check out the compatibility of your time zone here.

When you get in touch, we can discuss your Spanish learning objectives, and we’ll advise you whether we think online classes can support your needs.

If you’re not sure which option is best for you, please contact us and we can discuss this with you.

Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Selected FAQs

That’s a great question! First you must go to the Workforce Training Express Program website to apply for the grant. The website has a list of documents and information that you must submit for eligibility from your employer. Please submit grant applications at least 21 days before the start of your Spanish course. Go here to find a list of Spanish Workforce Training course numbers. Type Spanish into the Course Name section and search for International Language Institute in the Provider Name section. Contact us if you have any questions or need assistance.

We still have options. We can provide semi-private tutorials or have your employees join the World Language classes that we regularly run. We can bill you, as the employer, directly.

Whether you’re a business training up your staff in Spanish or other language or an international firm tightening up your team’s English business writing skills, our aim is to teach practical language skills that can be put to use in the workplace immediately.

Our Workplace language training also includes a cultural component to help your employees collaborate proactively with colleagues and contribute meaningfully to the mission of your organization.

We offer all levels of language classes to students with specialized terminology added depending on the specific workplace. Generally, most students need to learn how to communicate in the target language using basic grammar. Specific workplace dependent vocabulary is built into general lessons. For instance, vocabulary like policy, agent, deductible, theft, loss accident, etc. can be added to our curriculum because the grammar constructions (past, present, future, continuous grammar tenses…) are the same no matter the vocabulary.

Courses are designed to be flexible and focused on effective communication that can be used outside of class right away. Our language training for employees integrates the four skill areas: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. At the lower levels, participants focus on speaking and understanding to make an immediate impact in the workplace. Our courses incorporate the specific grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation skills that make the most sense for your employees to learn and practice. Class activities include pair and group work, role plays, work with pictures and authentic materials (readings, audio and video, etc.), writing exercises, and vocabulary building.

A typical 12 week (18 hour) class costs $5,400 ($300/hour flat fee)*. Program length can be customized.

Classes can be held at our school in Northampton, at your workplace if you are within 30 miles of ILI or online.

Course fees

You can book any amount of hours and take classes in many different permutations. That said, a lot of our company clients opt for one or two classes per week of 1.5 hours’ duration.

Remember to check whether your company is eligible for free Workplace Training Express Spanish (or Workplace English) classes.

The cost of your Company Spanish program will vary according to how many hours you book in total, and how many students are in each group. Remember, in order to progress correctly, we need everyone in the same group to be at the same (or a very similar) level of Spanish.
