OUR METHODOLOGY FOR LANGUAGE TRAINING

Unique Learning Method

All conversations in the classroom are conducted in the target language. We make a commitment to implement this throughout the training to ensure complete immersion and help students learn with natural ease.

Multiple Learning Options

Beckley.Institute offers flexible learning options for business professionals that have tight schedules or travel frequently. Choose from classroom courses, self-study options and virtual learning, and experience our unique post course online retention tool to suit these needs.

Efficiency at its Best

We believe that 80% of any conversation is based on 20% of the language. At Beckley.Institute, we focus on that 20% to get participants speaking in no time.

International Standards

All our language courses are aligned to the internationally recognized CEFR proficiency levels, to meet the standards of the global business environment.
