Lan­guage train­ing firm goes on­line

Yorkshire Post - Business - - FOCUS ON SMES -

A BUSI­NESS­WOMAN, who runs a train­ing firm teach­ing lan­guages to com­pa­nies, has de­vel­oped an on­line train­ing en­vi­ron­ment.

Tina Kalan­taridi has spent more than a decade tak­ing her team of lan­guage teach­ers into com­pa­nies to de­liver tai­lored for­eign lan­guage train­ing.

She has now de­vel­oped a plat­form that de­liv­ers be­spoke teach­ing through a spe­cially de­signed vir­tual class­room.

The Lan­guage Pod, which de­liv­ers live lessons with qual­i­fied teach­ers, has been cre­ated to meet the needs of busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als who want a more flex­i­ble ap­proach to learn­ing.

Ms Kalan­taridi, who is from Har­ro­gate, said: “At­ti­tudes and be­hav­iours have changed rad­i­cally over the past few years and with more peo­ple work­ing flex­i­ble hours and, in many cases, be­ing home-based at least part of the work­ing week, lan­guage lessons in the work­place are not as vi­able as they once were.”
