goFLUENT expands its operations in Britain
Increasing demand for its products globally has prompted goFLUENT, a provider of Business English training which works with many of the Fortune 500 companies around the world, to begin a recruiting drive for British-based native English speakers.
More than 2,000 companies worldwide use goFLUENT (http://www.gofluent.com/)’

“We’re proud to be the only player in the market that doesn’t outsource its training to freelance trainers and coaches. Our clients are assured that trainers giving goFLUENT lessons are 100% our own employees – employees who have been thoroughly trained on our quality standards for lessons and our strict guidelines for the data protection of our clients.
“We’re expanding our team of trainers offering telephone-based support and coaching not only because the demand for goFLUENT’s corporate English language teaching is growing steadily but also because we want to expose our learners to a range of British regional accents. Understanding the variations in British accents can be extremely helpful for those learning to speak English, especially those in Europe and Asia who do business with the UK.”
She added: “Adult learners need guidance and support from others to sustain their motivation, which is critical in the process of learning a language.
“We’ve found that, for many of our learners around the world, business communication using British English poses specific challenges that we want to help them overcome. Having British trainers should be attractive for British-based international companies which want to train their staff around the world to speak British rather than American or any other form of English.
“Of course, learning a language is just a beginning. The real result is being able to interact successfully in the language – taking account of the many regional variations that there are in English.”
Since goFLUENT’s language learning programmes are customised for individual learners, the lessons’ topics vary widely from learner to learner, so would-be trainers for goFLUENT must be able to discuss a wide range of topics – and especially a wide range of business-related topics.
“We’re looking for trainers who’re great communicators,”
