About VICI

 

SO WHY CHOOSE VICI LANGUAGE DYNAMICS?

Vici Language Dynamics might be one of the few business language schools out there, but it isn’t the first of its name. In fact, it evolved from the Vici Language Academy, a language school dedicated to teaching anyone who wanted to learn new languages in a fun and exciting way.

Both were founded by award-winning entrepreneur Nathalie Danon, but Vici Language Dynamics was her response to the growing cries of frustration in an English marketplace without effective multi-lingual communications. Business were struggling to find foreign staff who could speak business English to high standards, and were constantly having problems with English speaking managers trying to oversee foreign branches, when they didn’t even speak the language. 

Everyone at Vici aspires to give our students the best possible guidance and direction, providing them with the tools they need to improve their businesses and inspire them to become truly bilingual. Our linguists are not only trained teachers, but they have decades of experience in specialist areas (such as IT, law and finance), while living in the UK. Who better to help you gain a competitive edge over your clients?

That’s all well and good, but why should a business work with Vici?

10 Reasons why you should let us undertake your project

Small, But Perfectly Formed!
We aren’t a huge language agency with millions of customers – nor do we want to be. Instead, we are a team of 24 in-house specialist linguists, all highly trained and qualified in education and language. Our size and specialisms mean we can give each client the dedicated attention and support they need on their language journey, producing much higher success rates than bigger agencies.

Fast Responses
Our offices are always open between 8am to 8pm, 6 days a week, all year round. So, if you need help, or have a question, we will be there to help. We guarantee we will always respond within 12 hours of receiving your query.

Reliability Is Our Key Word
We never forget appointments, rarely cancel lessons and always remember what we covered with you previously. Our language coaches are dedicated to providing an outstanding language service that you can always rely on.

High Skill Levels
Between the 27 language coaches at Vici, we have over 100 years of experience in speaking and teaching foreign languages. This means we have the skills to develop bespoke solutions for you and your team, and the real-world experience to help you learn the ins and outs of foreign languages, including language necessary for specialist skills (like IT), even as they evolve. Our experts can teach:

English as a Foreign Language, French, German, Mandarin, Japanese, Arabic, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Polish.

Adaptability
Our language programmes are not one-size fits all. In fact, every programme is specifically designed for you, with your goals and your industry in mind, in line with the needs of your role, and your learning style too!

Innovative Approach
With a unique blend of in-person training, e-learning and specialist resources, Vici creates a fun and interactive, yet professional and personalised approach to learning foreign languages. A far cry from school classrooms and textbooks!

Flexibility
Again, no cookie cutter solutions here! The Vici team will work with you to find a solution that suits your budget, and adapt our training to your timetable and individual needs.

Customer Care Promise…
Over the course of the last 3 years, we’ve won 2 awards for outstanding customer service. And that’s because looking after our students is at the very heart of everything we do. So much so, that we put it all together this Customer Care Promise

Green Learning
Our environment is fragile and precious, and it’s up to us to protect it in any way we can. That’s why at Vici, we offer a comprehensive e-learning programme called iVici, which eliminates the need for travel. We also upload all of our documents and resources to online folders to avoid unnecessary printing. With Vici, you can learn your new language and be green at the same time!

Money Back Guarantee
money-backLike many good businesses, we offer a money back guarantee. So if, after 3 months of following our language programme and following your coach’s advice and guidance, you can honestly say we haven’t helped in your language learning journey, we will pay you back every penny of your investment, in full.

Founded by the award-winning entrepreneur Nathalie Danon, the VICI team has recognised that while the global marketplace has opened up opportunities for businesses, it has also presented challenges with the best staff not necessarily speaking the right language.

VICI language Dynamics LTD evolved from the VICI Language Academy LLP launched in 2008 and its work with children, which earned Nathalie the moniker of being ‘The Jamie Oliver of Languages!

The Academy in the Newbury town centre in Berkshire welcomes students between the age of 2 and 92, and coaches them in 13 modern foreign languages!

 

“We were also approached directly by businesses that had recognised the need for language training within their organisations for a variety of reasons, from improving communication through to fears about productivity. Similarly organisations also asked us to qualify the skills of staff they had found who could already speak the required language.

To meet the demand for effective language training and recognising how businesses wanted support for an in-house alternative to the London language recruitment services, VICI Language Dynamics was born and we have, last year, opened a branch in France: VICI Languages France.”

“It is quite an investment, that’s true, but it is also a big achievement! The time and money I spend on Vici are well worth it. I’m not particularly gifted at languages, I am just a normal guy so I would say to anyone thinking about trying it, give it a go. Just try a couple of sessions. Walking through the door that first time is the hardest bit, once you’ve done that you see how much fun you will have and how rewarding it will be.”
