If you are staying in a hotel, and you want to ask a staff person a question (Where’s the bar, ice, elevator, etc) and they don’t understand you, that’s frustrating, right? Well it’s frustrating (and embarrassing) for the staff as well. The same is true in any business in which the staff can’t easily communicate, at least on a basic level, with customers and clients.
ShareLingo classes are tailored to the organization. So, in a hospital, for example, participants practice with different materials than in, say, a bank, or a hotel, or on a construction site. And, because students work one-on-one with a native speaker, the phrase “How do you say … “ is used a lot. The natural conversations that happen in a ShareLingo group lead to all kinds of tangents off of the main topic, and we encourage this!
The ShareLingo concept is really simple. Instead of learning from a white board or a computer, we help English learners meet Spanish learners for face-to-face practice together. A bilingual facilitator uses our method and materials to keep things moving so you are never bored. We have language learning solutions for individuals, businesses, non-profits, and schools.
