let there be food and drink...
Paralingo Language Consultants offers a 5-day intensive English course designed specifically for the wine and gourmet food sectors. The course comes with a programme to be covered over the five days. This is an “out-of-the-box” course, however, small customisations could be made as per the client’s request.
Who is this course aimed at?
The main idea of the course is to provide some of the necessary communication tools for employees and management to be able to communicate with visitors, suppliers and customers from beyond the Spanish or Catalan-speaking world. We believe this to be vital given the growth of these sectors in Spain and the expanding export markets in Europe and beyond.
