Manufacturing facilities are smarter than ever, relying on digitized machinery on the line and increasingly on AI robotics, now interacting with human beings.

But most manufacturers still rely on people to communicate accurately, succinctly and effectively with co-workers on the line, with managers, with machinery and, sometimes, with clients.

ProActive English has more than 20 years providing creative training solutions for manufacturers with complex multishift operations and diverse, multicultural workforces. Participants in training are usually immigrants who have worked hard to establish a life in the United States. Some were well-educated in their native country, others not. Some arrive here as refugees, others through more traditional paths with little resources. But all of them want and need our help to improve their ESL language skills for spoken English and written English.

Companies that recognize the benefit of supporting their hard-working labor force gain competitive advantage. In addition to increased productivity on a daily basis, our ESL training can lead talented high-potentials into management training and greater loyalty with their company. It’s a win-win situation.
