French Lessons for corporate executives
Online Corporate French Lessons
Corporate executives and employees often need advanced training in the subtleties of the French language. While seemingly small in importance to many business people here in the U.S., these inaccuracies – especially on a repeat basis – can seriously undermine a good international business relationship. More than just a language training school or audiobook course, Elite French Tutoring is virtual training that goes above and beyond the norm.
We teach the WHYs and the WHEREFOREs of the language that mean so much to the French people. Speaking French properly, with the correct accentuation and intonation is important, of course. But conducting business in the French manner and using your language, accent and intonation respectfully and politely will win you and your company far more accolades and business from your ‘friends across the pond.’
French Test Preparation
