Our PhilosophyAll of our training programs at Wiseplanet are founded on our philosophy that the relationship between language and culture is deeply ingrained and that no one can truly be competent in a language until the cultural context in which the language spoken is understood.
“To teach a foreign language, is also to teach a foreign culture…”
Selected for their skill, expertise and experience, our team of professional trainers and consultants come from a variety of backgrounds and cultures. They all hold university graduate degrees and are capable of providing services in multiple languages. Our country specific trainers all have international experience and are either from, or have lived and worked in the target country for a number of years. As such, they are able to give expert advice that draws on their own experience of living, working or doing business with people from other cultures.
