Reality Check

    Despite the abundance of English Institutes in Chile, a recent survey of working professionals produced the following results:

  • 80% rate low on English speaking ability80%
  • 75% lack the confidence and ability to have a conversation with a native English speaker75%
  • 91% recognize English as an essential skill for professional development91%
  • 90% believe total immersion in an English speaking country would be the solution90%
  • 69% think total immersion takes 3 months to a year abroad69%

While the national spectrum is bleak and plagued with immersion misconceptions, clients from Executive English Now appreciate that we are not part of the long-program-low-results maze, nor do we cultivate teacher-student dynamics, instead, we pair executives with business experienced natives who support their goals and the results speak for themselves.

Immersion

We offer immersion experiences for busy executives looking to improve their English on an accelerated schedule. A two-week training with native speakers who lead engaging activities and discussions designed to fast track progress in English while increasing business know-how and cross-cultural awareness.

The program addresses the roadblocks and the challenges a limited level of English creates in the workplace and in real-life, working through specific scenarios that favor “learn-by -doing” and “peer to peer interaction” so that executives can incorporate the vocabulary and practices most commonly used in English speaking countries and rely on tips and tricks that will enhance their conversational and writing skills on and off office hours. Following the offsite experience, participants go back to work with a higher level of English, renewed skills and a new found confidence, a combination that makes them stand out from the masses and gives them the skills of the current global economy professional.
