Benefits for you - message from Toby 

“I set up the Language Partnership with the aim of combining two enduring passions; business and training. I have spent my career in management and in training and development and I believe training should be dynamic, engaging and fun without ever loosing sight of clear developmental goals. You need to know what you have achieved and where you are going.

We specialise in Business English and we challenge the norms. Too often Business English is taught by teachers with little interest in business. Our trainers are committed to developing both your language and your business skills. So, for example, when we develop the language you need for business meetings it is natural for us also to improve your skills in managing and contributing to meetings.

I welcome the opportunity to hear from you."
