Berlitz Business Italian Training Principles
Intensive Italian Course for Executives
Berlitz Total Immersion® is an intensive and effective type of Italian private lesson. This personalized and intensive program is one of the fastest and steadiest ways to master speaking Italian.
The purpose of the Berlitz Total Immersion® program is for the employee of the institution to develop Italian speaking abilities 1 level in 1 week.
Total Immersion Italian programs are generally preferred when urgent needs arise. For example, if one of your employees is assigned to your headquarters in the Italian and his/her Italian level needs to improve quickly, Total Immersion® is a suitable Italian training option for your institution.
Corporate Italian Training Needs Analysis
Budget and Italian training plans are directly related to each other. We can follow 3 different ways while preparing the budget and Italian training plans. In the first approach, institutions set academic goals in Italian training (such as how many people will reach this level in a short time) and your Berlitz education consultant prepares the budget and Italian training plan necessary to achieve this goal. In the second approach, the budget, duration and number of trainees are determined. Your education consultant reports to you how much the Italian level of the employees who receive training can improve and to what level they can reach, with the optimum use of the budget in the specified time. In the third approach, the budget, duration and Italian level target are clear. In this case, your training consultant will report to you how many employees can reach the specified Italian level within these limits.
The target that the institution wants to achieve at the end of the Italian language education program is of great importance for the shaping of the education plan. For example, if an employee of a multinational company is going to go abroad and his/her Italian proficiency needs to be achieved in a short time, the Italian training program to be offered for this employee and the budget will be different from an employee who is in your talent pool or someone to be promoted in the middle term.
In corporate Italian trainings, we determine the current Italian level of all employees who will participate in the program with high accuracy with the online and speaking tests used by Berlitz all over the world.
Face-to-face Italian training budgets can be high in trainings of 400 people or more. In such cases, online education, virtual classroom or Italian language education options with Skype may be suggested.
Our corporate business Italian trainings have special training modules for departments and professions. Customizations will be presented to you by your Berlitz training consultant according to the job and occupation distribution of the employees who will participate in the Italian training.
