Instructor-led training

When you have the freedom to schedule regular sessions, studying with a professional trainer is still a very effective way to improve your language skills. Learn language and communication skills with an experienced professional language trainer who will guide you by providing feedback and error correction, while facilitating a stimulating and cooperative learning experience. 

Focus on improving the skills you need in your daily work, for example spoken skills, listening comprehension, vocabulary, writing skills, reading comprehension, active language usage or clarity and fluency. 

Our professional trainers will work with you to set learning targets based on your learning goals and needs to ensure the effectiveness of the time and effort you put into your language learning. At the end of your training you will receive an evaluation of your progress including personalized trainer feedback, rating of progress with targets and recommendation for further learning. 

You can study one-to one with your language trainer, work with a colleague on a pair course, or with a group. Plan your course and sessions to meet your learning needs – from intensive daily or bi-weekly sessions, to weekly or bi-monthly meetings with your coach. 

You can meet your trainer either online or onsite. Our most common languages are English, Finnish, Swedish, German, French, Spanish, Russian, Japanese and Chinese but our extensive trainer network caters also to a long list of other languages. 

Hybrid learning

Hybrid learning means finding the right mix for your learning needs. It is about combining the benefits of online self-study with the effectiveness of instructor-led training. 

Instructor-led training is highly effective, but sometimes it lacks the necessary flexibility. In today’s hectic business world, you might find it difficult to free up time to schedule regular lessons with a language trainer. 

Online training, on the other hand, is highly flexible. You can study at any time that suits you and wherever you like, and you will get both practice and immediate feedback. 

However, online self-study often doesn’t provide quite the same degree of activation and retention as instructor-led learning. Studying on your own also takes a lot of self-discipline – many learners find that having a session with a personal language trainer helps them to stay motivated. 

Hybrid learning is a blend of digital learning with instructor-led lessons and it is the most effective way to learn language and communication skills. Create your own learning path that meets your learning needs and preferences, and study at the times and in the ways that suit you best. 

Select a hybrid package from the Acolad Learning Store or combine any of our self-study topics with as many one-to-one or group sessions with a professional language trainer you need to meet your learning goals. For one-to-one students we offer also the option to buy hybrid language learning as a subscription – get access to all self-study content in the Acolad Learning library and a fixed amount of one-to-one online sessions you can freely schedule with your language trainer during the subscription period.
