Our online programs offer the same customized language training as our on-site/in-person classes. Every program is customized for each student or corporate group, from the assessment interview to the instructor selected and materials chosen. Schedules are decided upon between instructors and students and modified as needed.
Accelerated language programs tailored to bring students to desired language proficiency quickly and efficiently.
Structured with the same commitment to customization that Primera brings to all our language programs, we design immersion solutions to fit the individual. We work with each student’s learning objectives, schedule, and desired timeframe to develop immersion courses that fit their specific language and professional goals.
Instructors meet with students for an intensive course of study that spans weeks to months.
Primera’s innovative approach to cultural training uses active practice to impart cultural skills with a business focus.
