English language seminars and workshops

If a department or company has to start working in English, or needs to improve some aspect of its use of the language, this is the time to think about offering employees an English seminar or workshop.

The client decides on the number of participants and the length of sessions. Training is always tailored to companies’ specific needs, and seminars and workshops are held in English, although attendees may use Swedish if they wish. You can also order Communico seminars and workshops through:
