Lingoloop is a great way to build your confidence and improve your English for work. Just see what our customers have to say (below).
Lingoloop customers want to improve their English for work
“Why do you need to improve your English?” This is one of the first questions we ask our students when we meet them for the first time. It’s a simple, but important question.
Nearly two thousand people have answered our survey since we started keeping track. For “Why do you need to improve your English?” we offer three choices in the survey: Work, Social & Everyday Life. Of course we let our students submit any combination of those 3 choices as well. Here are the results (below) and they are constantly being updated:
Most of our learners want to improve for a variety of reasons. The majority choose “all of the above” and many choose a combination of two of the reasons.
However when you look at the results of students who have only picked one choice, Work is the dominant answer. In fact, many of our students use Lingoloop to improve their business communication skills so that they can get ahead at their current job or to help them find the next one.
Our professional learners have the following goals:
Improve their presentation skills
Feel better speaking English with Western clients
Gain confidence speaking during meetings
Understand Western culture, slang and idiomatic expression
Build better relationships with their co-workers
Does this sound like you? We really care about our students’ goals and we know how difficult it can be to use English in the workplace.
Business English is hard when you are a non-native speaker
You may be asking yourself “How can I improve my Business English?” Well, even the most advanced English learners can struggle with how to improve their professional English speaking skills. Some of it comes from not having the right words or mispronouncing them, but much of that struggle can be from a lack of confidence or fluency (being able to speak without hesitation).
We asked our Lingoloop students about the challenges of using English in the workplace. Here is a list of their concerns.
#1 “I don’t want to seem impolite.”
A recent student who works in a corporate job wanted to learn how to say “I can’t right now, but I’ll finish it by the end of the week.” She feels when she says anything other than “yes,” it might come across as impolite. Of course there are many polite ways to say “No” in English. But it can be difficult to think of them on the spot! When you have a chance look at our recent blog post about different ways to say “no.”
#2 “I feel like people stop listening to me.”
Another comment we get from people in management positions is that they feel that their team members stop listeningto them after a few sentences because the listeners are distracted by the speaker’s limited vocabulary, pronunciation, etc.
One way to improve in this area is to learn the jargon (idiomatic expressions) of your field. There are so many idiomatic expressions and acronyms in business! People love to find a short way to say something. It will help you speak more succinctly and connect with your co-workers.
It can be frustrating when people don’t listen to you! It becomes distracting and can lead to the next thing on our list.
#3 “I lose my train of thought.”
It can happen to the best of us, but it happens a little too often to non-native speakers. Because many of our students are stressed about having to speak English, little things can derail their thoughts. All of a sudden, you forget what you were going to say!
Even if you are focusing on improving your vocabulary, don’t forget that it’s important to practice using what you learn. Lingoloop group classes are a great way to practice speaking in front of others and improve your focus. Many students claim feeling more confidence after just a few classes!
#4 “I feel insecure when I’m on a conference call.”
There is something unnatural about speaking on a conference call. Only one person can speak at a time! There are awkward pauses and moments where people can’t hear. Even worse, now with video calls on Zoom, Facetime and Skype, there is the added pressure of worrying about what you look like. If you have Zoom anxiety check out our recent blog post about this topic!
#5 “Small talk is difficult for me.”
Some of our learners have little problem with speaking English in a technical setting, but when it comes to making “small talk” with co-workers, they don’t know what to say (or maybe they don’t know what others are saying). Some of it is cultural and some of it has to do with idiomatic expression. There are so many colorful ways to say things in English! It can be hard for non-native speakers to understand.
Is Business English hard for you?
We really listen to and care about our students. Do any of these reasons sound like something you would say?
Are you looking for an inexpensive online english class? Maybe you googled “cheap english class online.” There are definitely many affordable english classes online for English learners on a budget.

Before you make a decision on cost alone, there are a few other things you should consider.
How much value are you getting?
Sometimes you pay for what you get. If something is low priced… it’s probably for a reason!

How’s the customer service?
This is probably the most important thing to consider. Does the company care about making their customers happy? Do they listen to their customers?
If you send an email will you get a response quickly? If you leave a message will they call you back?
I can say with 100% confidence that Lingoloop offers the best customer service in our industry. You’ll find out after you join:)

Many English learners want to find an American English school so they can speak English like Americans. Why is that? If you look up American English on Wikipedia it says:
American English, sometimes called United States English or U.S. English, is the set of varieties of the English language native to the United States. Currently, American English is the most influential form of English worldwide.
It makes sense. English is the language of business and the United States is a big player in global trade. So if you want to do well in business, it follows that you would want to be well-versed in American English.
The funny thing about American English (and even British English) is there are so many sayings (idioms) that it can get in the way of global communication. A BBC article recently proclaimed that native English speakers are the world’s worst communicators.
Why is that? People who speak English as a second or third language tend to speak English in a more simple way. Native English speakers like to use colorful, indirect ways of expressing things.
There are many options when it comes to finding an American English school. However, there’s only one option that has a 5-star rating and that’s Lingoloop! Our students absolutely love us – just read our reviews:)
Our students love our expert teachers, and our unique method. We truly have a conversational method that gets our students talking and improving class by class. We could say more, but the best thing to do is to try it. Whether you are a casual learner or someone who needs to improve their English for work, Lingoloop can work for you.
Most of the students that find us want one thing… to speak English fluently.
They want to feel good speaking English for work. They want to make presentations confidently. Contribute to team meetings in English without stress. Talk with their customers freely.
They want to speak English for social reasons. Some of our students are at University and want to make new friends. Or maybe they are recent immigrants to the US or Canada and want to speak with their neighbors.
Some of our students just want to feel good using English for the basics. Speaking with their doctor… or asking questions at a store.
The hidden secret to speaking English fluently…
So what’s the secret?
Well, in all honesty there’s not one special secret that is the key to unlocking English fluency. However in our opinion, there is one area that is oftentimes overlooked when it comes to English instruction.
So simple right? Knowing the right thing to say to someone in a conversation depends very much on what you think someone is saying to you.
At Lingoloop, even though our marketing slogan is “Feel Good Speaking English,” we don’t want our students to be just great speakers… we want them to be great communicators. Speaking is just 50% of communication. Clearly listening is the other half.
Our method is designed to make you a better communicator and a big part of that is to listen mindfully. Here is a short list of things you can do to improve your English language listening:
Of course you can practice your speaking and listening with a Lingoloop teacher online.
Practicing with our expert teachers you will feel like you are in a real conversation. Not just repeating sentences from a book or lecture. We don’t do “repeat after me… “ Our expert teachers are really talented (check out the video below!).
