CLS designs and delivers language and cross-cultural communication training programs for individuals and organizations across multiple industries and sectors:
The CLS Advantage
CLS prepares global professionals to engage effectively in multi-cultural and multilingual environments. For over 50 years, the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey has been using its skilled and knowledgeable faculty to develop high-performing, internationally minded professionals.
In today’s global society, those who can interpret social and linguistic cues, understand the subtlety of a negotiation, and speak dynamically and with confidence in a second or third language have a considerable advantage over those who cannot. These considerations have guided the development of each of our programs and serve as the foundation for meaningful, relevant, and effective curriculum design.
What makes our services unique is our level of customization, our field-specific content, and our many years of language teaching and program design expertise.
Our services include on-site and off-site language and cross-cultural training, curriculum design, and “in-house” program development. We work with individuals and organizations to identify specific language and intercultural training needs, and design programs that align with their professional goals.
As part of our program design services, we offer consultation to companies and organizations interested in developing or evaluating in-house language and cross-cultural training programs.
Consulting Services Include:
*Trainings can be conducted in-company, or at our Monterey (CA) and Washington DC locations.
*ask about other common and less-commonly-taught languages
