  • How we helped Administrative Sales Assistant, Marine, feel more confident when speaking English

    Marine is a French Administrative Sales Assistant at Beckhoff Automation; a multinational automation technology company based in Paris. The firm works with clients from both Italy and abroad, many of which predominantly speak English. With efficient communication being a key component for successful relationships with their clientele, Marine needed English to communicate effectively with her colleagues across Europe for sales enquiries, orders and invoicing. Marine’s manager approached class-e to help her improve her fluency when speaking English and develop her confidence, both inside and outside of the workplace.

    Why Marine chose class-e

    Marine’s goal was to improve her ability to speak and write in English and to develop her understanding – particularly over the phone. She wanted to be able to use English with her international colleagues. Marine had previously tried other English language training - but since joining class-e she now feels that her language abilities have really flourished.

    “I wanted to speak English without being afraid or ashamed. My goal was to be able to speak fluently. I previously tried different language trainers including Gymglish, WALL STREET English and BERLITZ before class-e. When I started with Berlitz 2 years ago, I progressed a lot but when I started with class-e, I’ve progressed much more and I really enjoy English now. I look forward to seeing my trainer”.

    Marine saw significant improvements in her abilities since learning with class-e

    Marine has used a combination of language services available at class-e, including 1:1 online English lessons and our immersion course here in the UK. Marine says that the two-week Intensive Course, where she was immersed in UK language and culture, was a turning point for her in her English-speaking abilities.

    “The moment that changed things was when I took the immersive course!”.

    The outcome

    Marine has used class-e for the past two years and continues to show amazing progress. At the start of her training, she was very shy, hesitant and intimidated by using a second language. During her two-week immersion course with us in Wales, she progressed enormously. She went from using barely a few words to long, leisurely chats over afternoon tea! She stepped out of her comfort zone and continues to go from strength to strength with her fluency, accuracy and her confidence.
    Now, she is very able to manage her communications with her colleagues across Europe, without getting stressed. Our nurturing, empathetic approach helped her see that she always had the ability.

    “Since studying with class-e, I have progressed very well. You can discuss many topics and ask to study a specific point in your session. I would absolutely recommend class-e to others wanting to develop their English skills!”
