Telephone courses
Your trainer on the other end of the line! True remote language courses, in some ways even more efficient than face-to-face classes because it is more difficult to understand a speaker over the phone: canSpeak's telephone classes will provide you with practice and the communication strategies you need. 
Classes can be organized either on the phone or by videoconference. 
More details
The advantages of telephone classes
- Online reservation and management of each session depending on when you are free,
- Possibility to choose trainers with different accents,
- Possibility to choose a trainer familiar with your job or activity,
- Intensive listening and expression.

To get the most out of each session, the trainee should prepare it. Preparation concerns a newspaper article, a topic in the news, or a communication game (which the trainer will send to you).  Corrections and follow-up work are sent to the trainees by e-mail.  

The different topics are linked to the trainees' needs, the classes are structured, and the trainers warm and professional.
