12 March 2021: An adventurous year in an online, live environment, for A_BEST Foreign Language Center trainers and trainees

Press release – Friday, 12 March 2021

The team of  A_BEST Foreign Language Center, one of the largest independent foreign language learning independent centres from Romania, with an experience of over 12 years on the profile market, is marking today, 12 March 2021, a year of activity 100% in online, live environment. It has been a year when all of us have found a way to connect to one another from different cities across Romania and not only, through a large range of foreign languages. Thus, A_BEST trainers and translators have constantly ensured, remotely, linguistic services at the same high quality standards, to companies activating on foreign markets and to which efficient and fast communication with their business partners is crucial.

Change, at a first glance, is seemingly risky. As any step into the unknown, it involves risks. It has been a year of discoveries and reconfigurations. From the pandemic’s very beginning we have bet on the transition into the online environment, and it has proved to be the winning hand. We have continuously adapted ourselves to the agile rhythm of the corporate environment, continuing to offer consultancy to our clients regarding learning & development processes, starting from the planification stage of the foreign language courses, till the progress monitoring of each of the participants, an incredible slalom among the myriad of our trainees’ daily tasks, professional and family related, by offering maximum flexibility when it came to scheduling the courses, a crucial element in the new pandemic context. We have equally continuously adapted our working procedure, to guarantee the quality of the provided linguistic services and we adapted the content of the teaching materials and teaching methods, in order that they reflected the new reality of online, live foreign language courses”, stated Aura Icodin, Founder & CEO – A_BEST Foreign Language Center. 

The representatives of A_BEST Foreign Language Center have been constantly preoccupied during this last year to offer our corporate clients linguistic service packages meant to capitalise as much as possible the existing budgets allotted to this segment, thus contributing to costs optimisation, so much needed during this period of instability at all levels, including the financial one. Moreover, we offered consultancy on Linguistic Management Strategy, a package of measures and techniques used by different companies to avoid linguistic and cultural barriers on new or expanding foreign markets.

Many companies decided to have their employees work remotely, but still wanted them to communicate better in English, German, or French, for instance. Thus, we decided that A_BEST trainers would continue their activity online, using particularly ZOOM platform. In this way, during this last year since the pandemic we have been able to deliver our A_BEST courses, keeping the same high level of quality, in an interactive manner, in a virtual environment, individually, in pairs (2 participants), mini-group or group, with trainees participating from different places. We are grateful to our clients for their support which practically allowed us to relocate – in record time – the courses from the physical course room to the virtual one. Moreover, A_BEST translators team delivered efficient translations, simple or authorized, from and into: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian, etc., doing their best to deliver them faster, as in such dynamic times we live in, procrastination has no place”, Aura Icodin, Founder & CEO – A_BEST Foreign Language Center also added.

Regardless where we are, communication has to power to bring us together, especially when we speak… the same language. Developing a new ability, such as studying a foreign language represents an opportunity that can be capitalised also during this difficult period, by exploiting the resources offered to us by the virtual environment.  In fact, online courses are not a novelty, they are an alternative to classic approach of in classroom study, which present the advantage that they can be accessed by the participants from anywhere.
