Language Coaching
Language Coaching: one-to-one

These programs are generally of short-term duration, i.e., 10 to 16-hour special purpose courses designed to enable the student to perform specific tasks in a foreign language, ranging from presentations to job interviews in a foreign language or how to conduct business negotiations, to name a few.

These programs are created to instill an awareness of the linguistic and meta-linguistic resources available to the student as well as how to incorporate them for everyday use and special purposes. They also enable learners to acquire terminology specific to the desired task and develop the foreign language skills required to assure satisfactory performance.

This one-on-one program involves a number of steps in the coach and client relationship, in order to:

  • Establish rapport
  • Deal with the immediate problem
  • Set targets
  • Discover linguistic resources
  • Review linguistic communications behavior patterns
  • Train and simulate the target task
  • Analyze change

English Programs

Across adds value to in-company foreign language communications and develops communications skills in English, Spanish and Portuguese for foreigners.

We are a company devoted to teaching languages engaged exclusively in the corporate environment and have adopted an individual type methodology.

We conduct preliminary interviews and written tests with all candidates and provide diagnoses and data related to:

  • The level of knowledge
  • User language style
  • Individual learning strategies
  • Language use needs

Based on this diagnosis, Across prepares proposals and implements programs encompassing the objectives, materials and techniques appropriate to the company and student context.

1. Regular Programs: These are focused on communications in daily situations and the student’s areas of interest.

The linguistic content of these levels enables a correlation to be made among material used in languages courses and the results of most of the international standardized tests such as TOEIC, TOEFL and Cambridge BEC.

2. Special Programs: Conversation, reading and/or writing and other specific areas such as:

  • Business English
  • Making Effective Presentations
  • Banking and Finance
  • Successful Business Writing
  • TOEFL/ TOEIC Preparations

Portuguese for Foreigners Programs

Our fully customized programs allow adjustments to be made in relation to the pace at which the student picks up the language naturally, the time that the foreigner expects to remain in Brazil and to his/her needs for the language.

We help provide the user with language that he/she needs to successfully perform in professional and social settings. We emphasize spoken communications and familiarize the student with routine language, our culture and customs as well as life style, thereby simplifying interpersonal contacts and making his/her experience in the country more enjoyable.
