ISUS Virtual Language Training Quick Presentation
Who are we? ISUS ispeakuspeak are pioneers of an award-winning online platform that connects language learners with top trainers around the world, creates individually tailored programs, and offers enough flexibility and technical wizardry to make learning a language a fun, engaging and highly effective experience. Big companies like IBM, Siemens, Deloitte and others, have been using the platform behind ISUS for some time now. We are now training people in more than 10 languages, from beginner to advanced levels, in more than 85 countries around the world delivering over 30,000 sessions a month.
Who are out trainers? ISUS trainers are based in more than 50 countries around the world (like the UK, USA, Canada, Ireland, South Africa, Australia and even New Zealand). Theyâ€™re all native speakers, with official teaching qualifications and certification in our very own systems and language learning methodology. Most important of all though, theyâ€™re chosen for their enthusiasm, passion and ability to get their students fired-up about learning!
How it works
What do we believe? Some people will tell you technology is the answer. Others stick by the classic tradition of the classroom. We're not convinced by either approach. In fact, through our experience with thousands of language learners around the world, we've seen the secret is to take the best of both worlds. We call it the 'perfect mix of man and machine' - the power and flexibility web 2.0 technologies with the guidance, motivation, and personal attention of your very own dedicated trainer!
What's our secret ingredient? At the end of the day, this all comes down to one very special but rather elusive gift: confidence. Confidence feels good. Confidence is motivating. And confidence is key to stepping out of your comfort zone and communicating effectively in another language. Grammar, vocabulary and other technical aspects all have their place, but only after you've begun communicating actively. This way you'll have the presence, experience and inside tricks to make it happen, whether it be in an important meeting, making contact and networking or recovering your lost luggage at the airport.
