Optimizing Global Communications – Language Services for Professionals

Global Communications

Since 1990, the ALC team of consultants has offered comprehensive English language and intercultural communications solutions to the professional community in the Potsdam and Berlin areas.

Our ALC Senior Consultants contribute their professional insight and studies in international business management, public administration, scientific research, technical and other fields.

Each of our ALC Trainers is a native-speaker of English and is highly experienced in offering corporate-level English language training to German professionals.

ALC’s core competence and service is customized training in Global Professional English and Specialized Communications for companies, government offices, diverse organizations and individual professionals.

Our training in Global Professional English develops the English language competence expected of today’s global professionals.

The Specialized Communications focus on key communication skill areas required by management, office personnel and project management / technical specialists; as well as on department- & industry-specific, technical, scientific, academic and customized English.

Land Brandenburg: European Capability of the State Administration

ALC also specializes in supporting all Land Brandenburg ministries in achieving their current language competence goals. The aim is for the Higher Service in the ministries and the management level in the respective subordinate units to achieve a minimum competence level in English of B2 according to the Common European Framework of Reference.

Clients can opt for an ON-SITE / IN-COMPANY Training at their own offices, a  HOME BASE training at our training center in Potsdam-Babelsberg, a LIVE ONLINE training with a dedicated ALC Senior Trainer or an OVERSEAS INTENSIVE PROGRAM in California or Belize.

Our Company Trainings are individualized to the organizational and personal needs of the participants and integrate training modules from our Global Professional English and Specialized Communications. These trainings are level- and content-based and generally meet weekly over a period of months or even years.

Our Company Workshops are compact courses from our Specialized Communications and are ideal as in-company trainings as needed.
