We are a language coaching company based in Helsinki, the beautiful capital of Finland. We coach our clients in Swedish, English and Finnish – with the aim of increasing confidence in using a foreign language in the work environment.
You are welcome to join our valued ProTalk client family.
Since 2011, ProTalk has been successfully delivering language coaching to its clients. We put our clients at the heart of the learning process and offer fresh, insightful and energising sessions that facilitate greater confidence and comfort in using a foreign language in the business environment.
We have moved away from the traditional “grammar book” approach to teaching and focus on developing natural communication skills that enable our clients to be effective in real life “out of the classroom” situations.
We consider language coaching as more than just learning a language. We deliver sessions that motivate, inspire and facilitate insight.
With us, you’ll get a language coach who will both support and challenge you to become a better communicator.
By learning with us, you’ll soon impress by talking.
ProTalk is a language development provider to many of the biggest Helsinki based law firms, private banks, consultancies and logistic companies. We offer a range of language coaching services that can meet a wide variety of needs. We have a flexible approach to our coaching, so if there is something you want that isn’t below, please get in contact.
Face-to-face language coaching sessions can be held at the client’s premises, a restaurant or any another location the client does business.
Our coaching is suitable for clients who want to develop authentic communication skills for the business environment. We can offer coaching sessions for developing both spoken and written communication.
Our clients often want to focus on areas such as: increasing confidence when speaking, broadening vocabulary, refreshing aspects of grammar, increasing accuracy, and keeping their language skills “conversation ready”.
ProTalk online sessions were launched due to the Covid19 pandemic. They have been a great success as we can meet our clients no matter where they are in the world. We use platforms such as Teams, Zoom and Skype.
As with face-to-face-sessions, we can offer coaching for developing both spoken and written communication.
We also offer “Walk&Talk” sessions on the telephone. This is where the client develops their phone speaking skills and also gets the opportunity to go for a walk.
We love to inspire people – we also do this by delivering bespoke seminars and webinars on a wide range of subjects such as public speaking, business writing and developing confidence when speaking.
ProTalk has also hosted guest appearances at business colleges about entrepreneurship and language motivation (by founder Anders Holm).
Please contact us to discuss any specific needs you have.
ProTalk’s language coaches are not your “traditional” language teachers. Instead of only focusing on grammar and book exercises, we encourage our clients to actively use their voice and engage with the language. We aim to understand our clients’ business environment and speak in their language.
“I founded ProTalk in 2011 out of a feeling and vocational experience that the language training industry in Finland was outdated. I strive to make my clients dare and want to express themselves in Swedish. When my client leaves the session content and more self-confident when speaking Swedish, then I have succeeded. I love my job and I’m very proud of what we’ve accomplished and where we’re heading.”
“I am a native Brit based in Helsinki and I have been coaching English since 2012. Before teaching, I worked as a project manager in London on many high-level government projects in the education, creative and design sectors. I also hold a post-graduate qualification in clinical hypnosis and I use principles of psychology when I coach. I also teach and direct music – mainly samba. When I coach I aim to inspire, energise and motivate. I also love humour.”
Finnish lessons are provided by Daniela Holm, who is a native speaker in Finnish and Swedish.
We also offer translation and proofreading services in Swedish, Finnish and English. Please contact us for more information.
We would love to hear from you!
