WEFIT
"LEARN AS YOU ARE"

The two principles at the heart of our name:

WE

WE

We is not only a simple pronoun. It means being together, exchanging ideas, and sharing – ‘We’ is a form of equality. Hierarchy itself is defined by ideas, reflection and the actions of each individual. For us, our clients are not simply ‘consumers’, they are the cofounders of our training solutions.

FIT

FIT

Fitting or adapting requires questioning concepts, being inquisitive and learning. Indeed, learning is a lifelong process. Moreover, the personalisation of services in today’s society is an international leitmotiv, which stipulates a strong ability to listen, understand, empathise and think outside the box.
Our business is focused on language training, as language is the basis of all communication. We are THE tailor-made solution – no doesn’t feature in our vocabulary!

Our trainers

Adult Educators

Teaching adults requires adherences to some very particular rules: the instructor and the student communicate with each other on and equal level. Our instructors are specifically trained to deal with the specific nature of this relationship.

Native-speakers

All our trainers are native speakers of the languages they teach. Indeed, for our English courses, we only recruit instructors from the Anglophone world, notably Australia, Canada, the USA, the UK, Ireland and New Zealand.

Regular Training

Before their first lessons, our teachers must undertake a month of training about our varied tools, resources and learning profiles. To guarantee the high quality of our lessons and to continue offer suitable training, we regularly listen to recordings of lessons and organise theme-based workshops.
