Language and Communication

Training for Global Enterprises

ProActive English was founded in 1997 to help business professionals learn to communicate more effectively in English. 

We provide on-site, face-to-face or remote training supported by access to our performance-based E-Learning tool, The Business English Web©.

We have delivered thousands of training hours for multinationals and local organizations like yours with offices in Silicon Valley, Silicon Forest (Portland, Oregon) around the U.S., Asia-Pacific, India, Europe and Latin America.

Courses typically run from 10 to 24 hours, often supplemented with individual remote coaching sessions that address individual needs more efficiently.

We also offer consulting services for clients seeking to develop a corporate language strategy.

New and veteran trainers come to us for language training resources in support of their clients seeking to learn or improve Business English skills.

[The] meeting simulation[s] were extremely effective to all of us, and especially the feedback we got from Margaret and others, as well as the review of the taped meeting. One rarely has an opportunity to see oneself in a meeting situation, and even though we don’t usually enjoy watching ourselves, it was a very interesting exercise to most of us, and certainly to me.
