English at Work – successful start into 2009

LSI Zurich – LSI’s Zurich school is extending their ‘English at Work’ program run on LSI Zurich’s LSIcorporate platform, an e-learning tool successfully developed and implemented in 2007 and 2008 by LSI Zurich’s Stephan Lendi for a major Swiss insurance. The program was tested and was first used in continental Europe with over 2500 employees at the insurance. Further ‘English at work’ sessions are being planned, fostering not only grammar, reading, writing and listening skills but also stressing cultural aware issues, i.e. cross-cultural training, which has been highly appreciated by employees, as much as HR, as cultural awareness skills have been becoming crucial in organizations operating globally. Three further sessions at various levels of the European language portfolio are planned for 2009.
