french for business

Training your employees in French for business is one of the smartest options if you are looking to expand your company’s client network and grow your business. Nowadays it is essential to be able to offer your employees language courses, which is why we will tell you all the tips you need to give your employees the best experience in French for business.

Advantages of training your employees in French for business

Why choose French to train your employees, what advantages can it bring to my company? We always talk about how important English is for doing business, but precisely for this reason, training in a language other than English will greatly differentiate us from our competitors because we will have an added value that they will not be able to offer. By training our employees in French, our company will be able to open up a new portfolio of international clients… and this language is spoken in 29 countries! You will literally have new business opportunities on every continent.

A very important fact to bear in mind is that France is Spain’s main trading partner and French is the third most used language in business worldwide. Such is the importance of this sector that there are currently 450 million French-speaking consumers. Imagine how many customers are waiting for you!

Which is the best methodology for learning French for business: online or face-to-face?

We have always associated learning a new language or knowledge with attending a classroom. The truth is that in recent years the situation has changed drastically and study methodologies have been modernized and adapted to changes in society. Thanks to this, learning can be easier, faster and, above all, more dynamic.

Also, due to the situation we are living in, face-to-face training is something that has been discarded. However, don’t think that this is bad news! The truth is that online training for companies has many advantages and facilities that businesses value more and more.

With online training, no matter where you are in the world, there are no barriers to study what you need. Also, as you don’t need a physical space and you don’t have to travel anywhere, we end up saving a lot of time and money. Nowadays, online training has adapted its methodology to be dynamic and to have a constant bidirectional communication between the teacher and the student.

In-company French courses: specialise in your field

We have already decided that the best option is to train our employees in French for business… But which one should I choose? There are many centres that offer French for Business courses but they don’t bother to adapt the course syllabus to their new students or to update the contents. That’s why at Classgap for Enterprise we adapt 100% to your business needs so that your students are trained in the best, quickest and most effective way.

From our totally free audit service we can detect the shortcomings of your company, the level of your employees and establish objectives so that your business can develop to its full potential. Likewise, thanks to our virtual classroom, the student and the teacher will have a direct, real connection and will be able to exchange concepts in a totally bidirectional way.

That is why it is so important to find a platform that adapts to your business needs, as it would not be right to offer a generic French course if you are in the accounting or tourism sector. Each sector has its own vocabulary and that is what we have to take into account when contracting the best service.

Group or individual French language training for employees?

Once we have detected the needs of our company and the level they have, how is it better to train them, individually or in a group? This methodology will depend on the objectives you have set or if you have to meet specific requirements.

For example, if you are looking to open up a new market and acquire a new client portfolio, it is best to opt for a French course for groups. With these courses we can solve the company’s need to raise the overall level of French so that the entire staff can communicate perfectly in this language and build the foundations of the new market together as a team.

On the other hand, if your goal is to approach a very specific client with a very small number of sales professionals or, in order to improve the corporate image, the company’s managers have to start giving conferences and webinars, it is better to opt for private classes. This is because the needs of executives and heads of department are much more specific and their training will focus more on perfecting the language, internalizing French business etiquette and knowing how to perfectly develop all the stages necessary to close a deal.

Can I get a bonus for in-company French language training?

You can easily get a bonus for in-company French training as long as you do it with an official center, such as Classgap for Enterprise, and all the specific procedures are carried out in order to receive the training credit granted by FUNDAE.

At Classgap for Enterprise we manage this entire process so that you don’t have to worry about anything at all and you receive 100% of all the training credit that corresponds to you as a company. Likewise, our courses are fully adapted to the methodology of the “new face-to-face training“, so your employees will receive the best online education as if they were with the teacher in person.


As you have already seen, French language training for companies is absolutely necessary to grow your business and develop your corporate potential to the fullest. Don’t hesitate any longer and contact us today to start training your employees in French for business!
