As the planet shrinks, more and more cultures find themselves thrust together in their work environment. Although we may share the same workspace, we don't always share the same language or attitudes to work or customer service.

To accelerate our clients' international success, Babel provides high-quality Foreign and EFL language training, Cross-Cultural training and Personal Development courses and graduate programmes and relocation briefings.  Our inspiring programmes can be blended to combine group training sessions with personal coaching delivered in-company, online with a ‘live’ culture coach or language tutor, via webinar or by using online activities such as web-based culture questionnaires.

With 20 years’ experience of delivering training to a wide range of companies, we have the understanding and expertise to provide you with a successful programme, value for money and excellent client support.


Language Training Courses

Our flexible, tailored language courses are delivered on a one-to-one basis or in small groups at our learner's work, home or online. Each year, we deliver in excess of 30,000 hours of training and our Satisfaction Surveys consistently show that 98% of our learners are fully satisfied.

The languages we teach are: 

Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Farsi, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Punjabi, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Turkish and Urdu.


Cross-Cultural Awareness

We offer a wide range of tailored Cross-Cultural courses including Working across Cultures, Multi-Cultural Team-Working, Leading Remote Teams and Developing World-Class Customer Service. 

For those working with overseas partners, we offer country or regional briefings such as Working across EMEA, Latin America or APAC. 

Our Personal Development courses help executives advance their skill-set to meet the challenges of working globally. Courses include International Negotiation Skills, International Presentation Skills, Effective International Meeting Skills, Business and Email Writing Skills. 

We are in our eleventh year of delivering our Graduate & Future Leaders Development Programme to one of the most dynamic companies in the seabed-to-surface engineering and construction sector. 

Expatriates are thoroughly briefed in our relocation programmes and assignees to the UK benefit from “Living & Working in the UK” course. 


Free Live online Demo

We are happy to offer a free ‘live’ online language lesson demo to:

  • HR personnel to demonstrate how the training would work and the benefits of this style of training.
  • An employee who would like to take up the training.  During the demo their current language level will be assessed by the tutor and their language needs and goals identified.

Unlike some online language training providers we are not just a portal and you can be assured of a professional, qualified tutor from our experienced team. 

Our online learners’ level of fluency can range from ‘just joined an international team and have no language skills’ to those who are ‘proficient speakers but have never made a presentation’.
