About Language Trainers
Language Trainers provides individually-tailored language training on a one-on-one or small group basis to busy people who need language skills for business, family and travel needs.
Alexis Sheldon, CEO of Language Trainers, founded the company in 2004 after 7 years in English language teaching and 5 years in sales, marketing and administration of language courses for businesses and individuals.
Alexis saw that although most other language training companies were focusing on teaching just one language in just one location, his idea for Language Trainers was to provide private one-to-one and group tuition for any language in any location using a worldwide network of professional trainers and a round-the-clock academic and administrative team to match the trainers with the students.
By 2005 Language Trainers had already taught over 500 clients in 13 languages in 15 cities, primarily in the UK and Ireland. In 2006, Language Trainers USA was launched followed by Language Trainers Australia in 2007 and Language Trainers Spain, Germany and Brazil in 2008. In the past year alone, more than 1000 clients have been trained in 17 languages in more than 100 cities in 10 different countries.
Language Trainers also offers online language tutoring (using Skype and group video conferencing technology) for learners all over the world, as well as evening language courses in London and New York City.
Language Trainers has a worldwide network of qualified and experienced native speaker language teachers, from London to Lima. Our Head Office in London, England coordinates the administration and course development, matching instructors with learners and providing academic support.
Language Trainers also has offices in New Jersey (USA), Sydney (Australia), Frankfurt (Germany) and São Paulo (Brazil).
The directors of Language Trainers have worked at all levels in the language industry, from teaching thousands of hours of classes themselves to running language summer schools to organizing courses for individuals and organizations including at government and CEO level. They are also dedicated language enthusiasts, speaking many languages between them.
All of our experienced instructors are native speakers (or have native speaker level) and have appropriate teaching qualifications. They are also locally based to reduce travel time and expense.
