Jimi+Bernie | Language Mediation Services
Language Mediation

Where native English speakers and foreign English-speaking peers, colleagues, clients, suppliers, etc + companies come together... is where you need language mediation by a mother tongue (English).

'Know how' matters

When you also need more than language. You need know how + perspectives of experienced business managers, who are mother tongue English.

We take care of the confusion, ambiguity, mixed signals and nuances which can trip up even quite competent foreign speakers, or leave them open to (mis-) interpretation. Mistakes often risk being unnoticed or manipulated.

This program is for you if you:

  • Need extra tools and resources to help you manage changing workplaces better 

All for you

We design 100% individualised programs based upon your specific situation to help you get back into the workforce.

Best of all, we cover a significant part of the cost ourselves - so all you need to focus on is English and your future work... not money :)
