Our English for Diplomats curricula incorporate a wide range of field-specific content and terminology through a content-based approach to language instruction (CBI). Programs offer language instruction in both one-on-one and group environments. Content courses and workshops in trade and policy studies, economics, negotiation, and conflict resolution are offered as part of a comprehensive curriculum.
Our one-on-one and small group programs offer instruction in a variety of languages and formats. Whether you are a Chinese CEO involved in the import-export business, a French journalist being sent on assignments throughout the world, or a government official representing a nation in Africa, you will find the flexible format of CLS right for you.
