THE PERFORMA SYSTEM

The Rowley Stystem

We offer a proven learning system that combines an understanding of effective adult language learning methods with an understanding of the needs of business.

Lessons are organized by real business situations you would face on your job. So you can access the lesson you need, when you need it. These skill lessons take about 30 minutes to complete. They include speaking and writing skills practice - all online.

Realistic and relevant business communication skills are learned in the context of relevant situations and then reinforced through repetitive exercise.

First, you are exposed to target language in an online scene that immerses you in a realistic business scenario. Then, you practice target language in online, interactive exercises. You can download key dialogues to practice on any mp3 compatible device.

The participants are speaking much more freely and appear to have grown in confidence. The final dinner was conducted almost totally in English - this would not have happened before the course! - Eric Lien Sales Manager of a Coca-Cola affiliate in Germany

Through 2012-2013, GM Nameplate had 20 employees at our Dongguan, China, facility enrolled in the BusinessEnglishPlace learning system. Employees participated in both BEP's "Blended" Certificate Courses and 100% online "On Demand" learning. This training helped our employees who had studied English grammar in school but lacked the communication fluency skills needed for everyday business. In addition to learning the appropriate English communication skills for their work, they gained confidence in their abilities thereby increasing their effectiveness on the job. Our local Chinese management and I found that the BusinessEnglishPlace system offers value for international companies in increasing the English communication effectiveness of their staff. We will continue with the program. - Bruce Cleckley (President & CEO | GM Nameplate, INC)

Last year I evaluated and recommended Business English Place for VIA Telecom. I met and interviewed the founder (D. Rowley) in person, and we very impressed with her knowledge of the theory of teaching and language. It is a more complex art than I had imagined, and I was very impressed with her comprehensive organized approach and innovation in this field. VIA Telecom engaged with Business English Place throughout 2012 and into 2013. Employees who used the online training found that it was very helpful and effective. Business English Place has a unique way of focusing on practical business scenarios, which our employees reported was engaging, and facilitated learning. At this point the VIA family of companies is undergoing a complex set of reorganizations, so it is not clear which group will decide training needs in the future. However, I can say that VIA Telecom had a positive experience with BEP, and I would recommend it again in the future within the VIA group. - Mark E. Davis (Ph.D I VP and Chief Technical Officer I VIA Telecom, Inc)
