Most of us in the UK and USA just about manage to speak one language reasonably well. So when Kazakhstan's President, Nursultan Nazarbayev, called on his country to be trilingual, it put many of us to shame. One company in Kazakhstan decided to do something about it.
In 2015 KIS/Orion LLP, a wholly owned Kazakh recruitment company, partnered with Tangent Training Co. Ltd. as their online language training providers, to train their nationals, in English. This proved very popular, especially as their staff could connect online to a live trainer from any location via any Internet device. The HR manager stated “This was very successful so we decided to train our expat Managers in Russian and Kazakh as well”.
Ruslan, a senior manager noted, “Our expat managers, who mainly study Russian, are often on the move so we needed them to be connected simultaneously from Russia, Holland, UK and Kazakhstan; this wouldn’t interrupt their schedule but meant they could maintain their training”. Something many executives neglect.
“We also negotiated special prices for all our national contractors working for large Oil & Gas companies here in Kazakhstan to enable them to develop their English capabilities which are so important in an industry that relies on communication skills for safety purposes” noted Ruslan.
Tangent Training was able to provide solutions for multiple language learning while allowing staff to continue their work without attending conventional classes. All languages are also aligned to CEFR international standards using qualified trainers. To find out how Tangent can help you, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
