What can you expect from us?
Practical, intensive lessons focused on your personal language needs. Due to our years of experience at DNB we have built up a broad knowledge of the bank. The trainers we work with at The Square Mile are highly educated native speakers who are familiar with financial jargon and DNB terminology. This is an added bonus for participants and means that we are able to tailor the training and material to your specific requirements. You can take the training course on an individual basis or in a small group (max 4 participants), provided that the levels and goals of all participants are similar. The courses take place at DNB.

What do we expect from you?
Your learning goals and requirements are central to the course. The lessons require active participation and are based around your own work situation using examples provided by the participants. On top of the planned face to face lesson hours you will be expected to devote time to self-study and completing assignments. You will be regularly asked for feedback so that the trainer can develop the course flexibly in line with your goals and learning needs.

How much does a course cost?
We have agreed tariffs at DNB. The length of a course is usually either 30 or 40 hours. The tariffs below are for the actual face to face hours with the trainer. You will also receive an additional 20-30 hours of self-study assignments.

  • One participant: €76,33 per lesson hour plus €152,67 intake and end report and €66,15 for material.
  • Two to four participants: €111,86 per lesson hour plus €152,67 intake and end report and €66,15 for materials.
