Welcome to premiere language
We are a language learning service based in Houston that specializes in providing culturally informed on-site English (English as a Second Language or ESL) and Spanish classes anywhere in the USA. Our language service offers business English and Spanish classes, courses, and programs for corporations, companies, manufacturers, plants, fabrication operations, and production facilities. One of our unique specializations that we have developed over the last ten years is our proprietary on-site blue collar English language program directed at machine and equipment operators, technicians, manual labor personnel, farm laborers, hotel staff, maintenance workers, and other vocational type workers. Our English and Spanish courses are based on the belief that learning language happens best when you use highly talented and culturally sensitive teachers to create an engaging learning experience for corporate language learners. We believe that the learning process is best approached as a pilgrimage by teacher, student, and client. This pilgrim spirit of curiosity connects the learner to the vitalizing sense of wonder that activates the will and resolve to overcome the inevitable challenges present in any endeavor to reach a worthwhile goal. Contact us to see how we can guide you on your journey to establishing an on-site language program at your workplace.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, we do! Although our work is mostly focused on sending teachers to provide classes on-site with companies and organizations, we do work with individual clients. We do not operate a traditional classroom facility so we don’t have regularly scheduled group classes for individuals at this time. All of our classes are private, one-to-one classes. We can organize a small group class if a group of students wants to take classes together, provided they are all of similar level. Please contact us and let us know what you are looking for and we will see if we are a good fit to work together.
No, we do not offer I-20 status to students seeking F1 student visas. If you are traveling to the United States on a tourist visa, it is possible to take classes with us if you take 18 hours of ESL classes per week or less and your primary purpose for coming to the United States is for vacation and not for studying English. (Please verify that this is the current rule by checking with the US Department of State website: https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/visit/visitor.html) In circumstances where an individual(s) is/are visiting the US on a tourist visa, we may be able to offer a semi-intensive program of 18 hours per week. The classes would be arranged at a neutral site since we don’t operate a classroom facility and we would need at least 1 month advanced notice to make the arrangements for a teacher.
On a case by case basis, we have and can offer programs in other languages. Please contact us and let us know about your situation and we will consider whether or not we can meet your needs to the high standards we have for delivering our services to our clients. The biggest concern we have is our ability to identify and work with highly qualified language teaching professionals for a targeted language. Finding a native speaker of a foreign language (other than Spanish) who also has valid experience teaching their language can present a considerable challenge in certain markets.
Although we have organized ESL programs for children with private schools since our founding, we have decided to discontinue promoting ESL programs for children as a regular part of our services. We will continue to work with children on a case-by-case basis. If you are in the Houston area, we do have a partnership with a local private school there that accepts international students and offers I-20s. If interested, please contact us for more information.
