Individual language training solutions of the company egoPERFECTUS are selected considering the unique personal qualities, the learner’s goals and the required learning styles. Using the original egoTRACKING methodology, authentic personal needs and language related objectives are discovered. Once these criteria are set, the individualised learning programme is created. Only personalised language training helps the learner to obtain what he really needs. During the training, a two-step system is applied, which is very effective when aiming for the desired results in the optimum time. The person in charge constantly monitors the learning process, seeking to consolidate new skills and retain the learner’s motivation. In order to achieve the desired results, the learner’s confidence and positive attitude are crucial.
For those who wish to excel in their field, we organise language training solutions for English, German, Italian, Norwegian, Russian and other foreign languages. This is designed for either individual or group training. By working with companies, we first try to understand the company’s identity and its needs, which enables a more focused and effective language learning process. There are both general and specialised (depending on the type of business) language training. Different companies have different approach when it comes to learning whether they wish to enhance their employees’ creativity or improve their teamwork skills during the process.
The individual language training is organised both in Latvia and abroad – the preference depends on the needs, goals, and capabilities of a person. The learning environment and an appropriate selection of educational experts are vital in this process, which is also a part of the personalised education. The company egoPERFECTUS will offer the learning method and environment that are most effective for personal growth. For example, we organise dinner with a teacher, who is a native speaker when learning English; for Norwegian we allow our client to join the group of managers from a similar business area; French language could be learnt and practiced during a visit to Paris.
A large IT company from Riga won a Norwegian company contract. It had to operate from Latvia but deal with Norwegian customers throughout the whole of Norway. This company had a similar experience in the past which failed due to the lack of cultural and organisational awareness as well as linguistic competence.
This time, the company’s HR department with a strategic unit decided to prepare better for the new project. They ordered the egoPERFECTUS Norwegian language courses. First, the experts from egoPERFECTUS using the egoTRACKING methodology established the expected language learning circumstances, actual goals and allocation of resources. It turned out that the company from Riga not only aimed to teach the staff the basics of the Norwegian language, but also wanted to gain knowledge of the cultural differences between the countries.
egoPERFECTUS presented a proposal that met all the needs of the customer. A native-speaking Norwegian language teacher came to Latvia for two months. He taught the language on the company’s lunch break. The classes were held in the form of a conversation in Norwegian and English, and the teacher told stories about the Norwegian mentality, customs, and culture of communication. The use of two languages made it easier to communicate, which brought the team closer together. Within two months, the staff learnt the basic Norwegian language structures. There was also a team building event planned which took place in both countries and during which the two companies presented each other’s homelands in Norwegian. The company egoPERFECTUS did not only solve the primary problem of the HR department, but also helped to strengthen the strategic cooperation between the two companies.
A successful business owner in and outside Latvia had the basic knowledge of English: he understood English well, spoke the language quite well, but with no visual information found it difficult to communicate on the phone.
The businessman, in search of a learning solution, turned to the company egoPERFECTUS. After using the egoTRACKING methodology, our experts identified the final goals of the client which were to improve listening, understanding, and phone communication skills in 3 months. It turned out that the person could devote only 2 hours per week to studying and he was not willing to do any homework. However, he was more than happy to pay as much money as necessary to attain the desired results.
The company egoPERFECTUS offered a targeted proposal: the director received calls from different teachers every day, during which both parties had to reach a defined objective. The director had to convey the necessary information and receive data from the teacher, who did not know the objective of the speaker prior to the conversation. Two fifteen-minute conversations took place every day. Each conversation was recorded and the main teacher summarised the information. The most important points were discussed with the client during an hour-long meeting every Friday.
Within 3 months, the director gained courage, learnt typical expressions and became proficient in listening, articulating, communicating the necessary information and receiving it. This enhanced his skills as well as confidence, which made a positive impact on his business.
The owner of a café that youth was particularly fond of decided to learn the Italian language. A few months ago she visited a coffee market and culture exhibition in Italy. The businesswoman met many influential and important people from the same field, with whom she wanted to cooperate. Her aim was to refine and improve the work of her café as well as expand the range.
She noticed that Italians like to communicate in their native language and that their English language skills are often very poor. The woman realised that knowing Italian would enable her to cooperate more effectively and create more business contacts in Italy. She appealed to egoPERFECTUS for a possible training of the Italian language. egoPERFECTUS experts carried out the egoTRAINING analysis.
After discovering all the needs of the client and the Italian language learning objectives, they suggested learning in a small group along with three other people who wanted to learn the language. The group option was presented because of similar goals: one of them wanted to go into his own business in Italy, the other was a sales manager who received an offer to work in Italy, and the third learner was a project manager of a large grocery store chain purchasing from and interacting with Italian suppliers.
With the help of a qualified teacher, they all studied the Italian language and debated in Italian about the peculiarities of business in Italy. During the course they acquired the necessary Italian vocabulary, learnt grammatical constructions, got acquainted with the Italian business culture and overcame the conversational language barrier.
