This program was designed for businesses that may have international employees and would like to offer them English tutoring in a group setting to help improve work communication, production, etc. In these cases, the business will fill out the associated request form under the "How To Get Started" tab above and AEI will customize a training program and schedule specifically for the business.
Every business will have their own objectives and goals for implementing a custom ESL program for their employees.
We seek to help business employees perform their job responsibilities using English by helping them to build a solid foundation in the basics of English, across all language dimensions including reading, writing, listening, speaking, essential grammar, and vocabulary.
Instructional methods are developed specific to the business using work-related materials and scenarios with goals toward specific learning outcomes for each language dimension (reading, listening, writing, etc.). For example, we will ensure the learning of all required vocabulary from business supplied materials and work scenarios.
In 2017, Thermo Pac, a specialty food packager, partnered with AEI to develop and provide an ESL Tutoring Course
specific to their Op Technician positions. It was necessary for their Op Technicians to understand and perform
the entire line process from breakdown to operation, sanitation, and maintenance. The biggest gap was English.
Specifically the ability to read and complete forms, train others, interact effectively with other employees
and federal inspectors, and write/edit operating procedures as necessary.
AEI developed and began a program consisting of 2-hour classes performed 2 days each week at the Thermo Pac facility. The program is still running strong.
In 2018, Kubota Corporation, an internationally known tractor and heavy equipment manufacturer based in Osaka, Japan partnered with AEI to develop and provide ESL Training for their executives as a part of Kubota’s Global Outreach executive training program.
AEI developed and began a program consisting of 4-hour classes performed 5 days each week at Atlanta English Institute where the Kubota executives work on all skill areas in English: speaking, listening, reading, writing, grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation. In addition, students also participate 3 days each week in tailored tutoring sessions in Business English, focusing on business communication skills. The executives also have the opportunity to improve their informal English in AEI’s English Social Hour held for two hours after class and facilitated by AEI’s Student Life Coordinator. Finally, a student-specific progress summary report is produced for each executive at the end of the program. The program is still running strong.
