Expertise and case studies 

For more than 25 years Language Solutions International (LSI) has been at the forefront of workplace English language training for international projects. Sectors of industry we have worked extensively for include aviation, oil and gas, defence, maritime and aerospace.

English for Specific Purposes (ESP)

LSI is a market-leader in the provision of customised training programmes for work-based English. We work closely with our clients’ HR, L&D and Ops Teams to ensure the language classes we provide are focused on real-life usage, and ensure all personnel can work safely and effectively in English.

Examples of tailor-made programmes we have created and written include:

  • Advanced Technical English

  • Golden Safety Rules for a major IOC

  • UAV Drone Pilot Course for pipeline operations

  • English for Coastguards operating in international waters

  • ESP courses for oilfield equipment to support vendor training

From pipe-laying vessels crossing the Atlantic to the world’s largest petrochemical sites in the Arabian Gulf, our expert teachers have been deployed on-site to train many thousands of local staff from the following organisations:

Language Audits and Assessments

Our bespoke English language assessments can be provided in paper-based or digital format. They are designed for specific industries, and focus on the real language usage of workers in that sector. Our ESP online assessments allow large-scale and flexible testing 24/7.

Language audits identify if existing workers have sufficient language skills and help an employer identify any specific up-skilling needed.

Recruitment tests determine whether new hires have the minimum language competency required, ensuring a more competent workforce with reduced up-skilling requirements. 


Teacher Training for local staff

LSI has a strong track record in the professional development of local national instructors. Our industry-focused Teacher Training courses support their transition from teaching in more traditional educational settings to the real communicative needs of industry employees.

Our courses for local Technical Instructors bring international best teaching practice into the technical training classroom, helping technical instructors deliver student-centred engaging and participative courses.

Language Solutions International is a UK accredited training centre to deliver the RQF Qualsafe Awards, including the Level 3 Award in Education and Training.

Our teacher training courses can be flexibly delivered using face to face and online components and have a strong focus on practical classroom practice.
