Running the Railroad

OVERVIEW

Language effectiveness in today’s world is not just about best practices – it means willingness to transform one’s self, one’s attitudes and approaches toward the magnificent range of people and cultures our world holds.

  1. Do you communicate across cultures?
  2. Are you responsible for running an international team?
  3. Is the Lingua Franca you use with your colleagues a challenge sometimes?

In this online English course, our team of highly qualified language consultants will coach you in long-term personal application, providing core principles you and your people need. Learning from years of successes and failures, we have acquired a set of language and communication skills that we would like to share with you.

In the following video LOS founder Martin Norling describes WHY this course is called ‘Running The Railroad’, HOW you can benefit from this course and WHAT you can expect from our team.

CURRICULUM

This online English course comes in the form of a monthly subscription. Every month you will receive four do-it-yourself lesson materials that will vary in style and length (45-60 minutes). All materials will be tailor-made. We recommend completing the following ‘Know Yourself and Others’ lessons right after you buy the RtR course.

During the course we’ll provide all forms of feedback, including written and verbal, planned and spontaneous. Every once in a while you can schedule a 60-minute online feedback session with one of our RtR team members to discuss your progress. This feedback session will be completely optional and charged separately.
