For Executives and Professionals

Toronto french
for EXECUTIVES AND PROFESSIONALS

A powerful language training program, aimed at executives and professionals in multinational and global operations.

I’m Alla Khinich, creator of Toronto French with 20 years of expertise in helping executives and professionals to communicate with ease and confidence in their multinational operations. My mission is to make you feel absolutely comfortable in French for your business to flourish and for your career to succeed!

Feeling lost and powerless in an international meeting because you can’t fully understand what is being said? It’s extremely intimidating, but you are not alone!

Did you know that 67% of executives believe that language miscommunications lead to inefficiencies? And that almost 50% agree that it makes collaborations more challenging, which slows down the overall productivity?

What if we could offer a simple method for you to quickly and efficiently become proficient in a foreign business culture? Yes, it is possible! We will help you reach that goal by teaching you the language and the specific industry terms, based on the geographic location of your business communication.

French Business Immersion Program with Pre-Assessment

Your Business Immersion Program begins with a pre-assessment to determine your current level of knowledge and your linguistic goals. This language assessment contains approximately 25 questions, both written and verbal, that will measure your grammar and comprehension. After the assessment, our professional teaching team will consult the Program Director and customize your Core Program for Business Immersion.

Customized Core Program

Depending on your needs and goals, the elements of your Business Immersion Program might include: presenting, negotiating, telephone conversations, video-conference coaching, reading (and understanding business materials), chairing a meeting and socializing.

Your program includes:

  • Verbal business communication: pronunciation and elocution – enhancing sound production, intelligibility, and the overall impact of the message transmitted.
  • Written business communication: grammar and usage – emails, reports, memos, and letters.
  • To ensure highly effective integration of these skills, our instructors will meet weekly to measure and evaluate your progress and adjust the program, if necessary.

To meet your business demands, all our programs are personalized according to your goals and necessities. Regardless of your industry, role or goal, we will address all the communication situations in which you typically act. To do so, we will take the time to understand the main topics you would discuss, who you communicate with, and what rapport you want to build. Based on the gathered information, we will develop a unique training plan for your ultimate success.

By combining a communication method and a task-based approach, we will reproduce real-life business scenarios to make you feel comfortable and prepared for every situation.

These can-do goals, based on realistic scenarios, are essential to keep you focused, stimulated, and aware of your business needs.
