From nanotechnology to pharmaceuticals and engineers to professors, the Capital Region is becoming an increasingly diverse place for foreign nationals to work and live. Brilliant in their fields, for many this is the first experience of full English immersion. Having just enough English to get by or asking a more proficient employee to serve as an on-the-spot interpreter affects the productivity of everyone involved and could lead to your best international employees resigning out of frustration.
CRLC has a team of English as a Second Language (ESL) instructors that has been working at local corporations for several years. Classes are tailored to the company’s and the employees’ needs and include elements of grammar training and small talk to refining pronunciation. You’ll see immediate improvement in listening skills, relaying information from meetings and all-around clearer communication.
Importing and exporting to China, setting up shop in Brazil, having a parent company in France and working in communities with Spanish speakers are all reasons to embrace corporate training in another language. Knowing just a few phrases and cultural courtesies in your client’s or host’s native language will help you bond in a way that others cannot.
CRLC is not offering translating or interpreting services at this time.
Capital Region Language Center is a NYS certified WBE (woman-owned business).
Excellent customer service, top-notch teaching, happy clients...
AMRIAMRI’s relationship with the Capital Region Language Center has been great for our company and our employees. A significant number of employees have enthusiastically embraced the opportunity to improve their communication skills and develop more of a U.S. Accent. Our diversity is now that much more of an advantage and the relationship with CRLC is much more of a partnership than a vendor relationship. The instructors understand both the students’ and the business’ needs and work with our employees, and us, well.–Brian Russell, Vice President of Human Resources
We were so pleased with the sign language class we signed up for. It was a four week workshop, and the instructor was extremely kind and engaging! Eastwyck Village is a community for retired people who are always trying new things and our residents were thrilled to learn a whole new way of communicating. The Capital Region Language Center is a great place!! Kelly Hotaling, Community Manager
