Specialist Language was established in Paris in 2008. The company ran English language training at some of the great business educational institutions such as INSEE and ENASS, as well as teaching executives in many of the major firms in La Defense. Later we concentrated on coaching (notably at Mazars and Generali) and creating bespoke workshops on specific business subjects for Marsh and other financial sector heavyweights. Now present in Berlin, we are training at some of the capital’s largest firms, but also planning a suite of full-day workshops at our premises in Wedding. Founder Sean Roe remembers: "The seed for Specialist Language was sown when I was learning French in-company before moving to Paris on secondment from a large reinsurance firm. It was seemingly impossible to find language trainers who knew the jargon of insurance, banking, investment or economics. People with experience of advanced business functions such as project management, audits or budgeting were also thin on the ground. Years later, after also learning German in-company, I decided to change career path and to use my first-hand experience to teach advanced business English."
