- Language Training
Our translation agency offers language training in the world’s most in-demand languages, as well as some of its rarest. At the City Translation Centre you can learn almost any language: if there isn’t a group to study the rare language that you want to learn, you can work individually with a tutor. The selection of languages available to learn corresponds to the list of languages our translators work with.
We work with individual students, as well as corporate clients. We can teach corporate clients in our own classrooms, or in their office, which saves them time and minimises the disruption to their work. Leading companies pay special attention to training their staff in foreign languages. Employees who speak a foreign language have more of a feel for other cultures, can effectively communicate with international colleagues, and show better results in negotiating and finding compromises.
We are pleased to offer our clients:
- Individual and corporate training
- Weekend groups
- A training course for professional interpreters for international conferences, forums, meetings, negotiations, etc.
- Unique business training for managers and executives of different levels
- Business training in foreign languages
- Courses in Russian as a foreign language
- Online learning (by using Skype and special software developed by us)
- Further training for translators and teachers
