When moving across the globe, employees will need to pick up a new language quickly to be able to adjust to both everyday and business situations and be able to communicate effectively in their environment. Cultural differences also play a significant role in feeling settled and comfortable in a new country. Utilising corporate language training and cultural awareness training services can empower relocating and loved ones to feel at ease with these differences. Our supportive and experienced trainers will develop a personalised training programme that allows your employees and their families to settle into their new location. 

What Is Involved In Culture & Language Training?

Before embarking on a language training or cultural training programme, Klippa’s trainers will aim to understand the needs of both your business and employers to find the best way of teaching. Culture and language training can take place before, during or after relocation depending on how much support is needed before the move. Classes can take place in a variety of learning environments depending on the needs and location of your employee, including face-to-face, virtually, or through an e-learning platform. 

Typically, corporate language training focuses on the essential vocabulary needed to communicate in both a business and personal space. Should you wish for your employees to become more advanced in the language, training can also assist them with their continued language development.

Why Choose Klippa’s Culture & Language Training?

By providing your employees with language training and culture training from Klippa Relocation, you can empower them to forge meaningful connections in their new role and feel settled in quickly. Our culture and language training can also be extended to the families of your employees so that everyone involved in the move can feel welcome and happy. With specialised language support and cultural guidance, children will also be able to make friends and excel at their new school.

We also understand that many factors contribute to feeling settled after a corporate relocation and therefore have designed our culture and language training to complement our overall settling-in services. Whatever level of assistance you or your employees need, we can work with you to create a comprehensive corporate relocation solution.
