Learnship, the business language learning solution provider, announced the launch of Sprint Business Skills Healthcare & Pharma. The fast-paced, online learning solution helps health professionals acquire relevant English vocabulary to better communicate at work.
With scientific research and papers published in English, and production sites scattered all over the world, pharma professionals know they need excellent skills in English. But learning a foreign language can take years of hard work.
“Business goes much faster than that. This is why we developed Sprint: to allow professionals to improve their business English skills in a matter of weeks and make an immediate difference in the workplace,” said Robert Szabo, Vice President of Learning Sciences, Learnship. “As a company that provides language training to leading pharma companies for the past ten years, we are used to providing specific Business English support on pharma topics.”
As its name suggests, Sprint Business Skills Healthcare & Pharma revolves entirely around medical issues. Learnship’s professional writers dived into authoritative material, researching the current and future pharma trends, to develop an intensive five-week course where learners focus on topics that matter to them, such as new therapies, consumerization of health, and vaccines.
Each week, learners get to take on new indispensable vocabulary through engaging digital modules, and spend a full hour practicing relatable scenarios, such as product development strategy meetings, sales discussions, and R&D meetings, with a professional trainer, until they become fully confident and fluent. For more flexibility, everything happens online – which also means the trainers are recruited based on their expertise and field of competence only, regardless of their location.
