Any Language for Relocation

These courses are designed for relocation assignees and their families on both long and short assignments. Our aim is to help make the relocation process smoother and the settling in period shorter by offering tailored language and cultural solutions both before and after the move.

One of the main reasons for early termination of foreign assignments is the failure of assignees or their family to settle in the new environment. Language and cultural awareness support reduce the risk of failure by helping the family adjust, and allow the employee to be productive right from the start.

Our Relocation courses are designed for:

  • Business executives who want their family to settle quickly into the destination country
  • Human Resources departments and Global Mobility managers who need to help families to settle so that the employee can be productive
  • Relocation companies who want to expand their service offering and competitiveness
  • Anyone who wishes to reduce culture shock and failure of foreign assignments

All our Relocation courses are tailor-made to suit the assignee’s level and objectives. Some examples include:

  • Relocating to France (for assignees, spouses and children)
  • Working in Germany (for assignees and spouses)
  • Starting a career in Spain (for spouses)

These courses are often taken in combination with our cross-cultural courses.
