English as a Second Language (ESL) for Business Classes

Sessions are customized according to each student's needs; in other words, students do not begin the classes until a full assessment has been made so that the facilitator can properly place the participant under the proper option or level necessary to bring them up to speed. The fifteen weeks sessions include one-on-one training and group training.

At the end of classes students will be able to maintain a basic business conversation in English based on sales and purchasing and business terminology. Latino small business owners will be able to learn definitions, small sentences and language specific to business day to day trade that will, in the long run, help them transact with viable corporations, governments and individuals in a competitive open economy.
