Employee Enrichment

Posted: January 31, 2011 in Gannon-Gannon Articles

Finding a company in today’s economy that continues to add benefits for employees is hard enough but when a company adds benefits that add value to both the employee and to the company pays off in a big way. Several local companies are finding positive results in providing quality language services as a company offered benefit. Gannon & Gannon Language School has been providing quality language courses in Sofia since 2006 and is now offering them to Sofia based businesses as a employee enrichment service.

By offering courses from beginners through advanced business management in English, Gannon & Gannon provides a wide choice of services that range from evaluation to certification. The Gannon & Gannon language school is a partner of the IEERA, a global provider of TESOL testing and certification services and brings these services to Sofia. Learning the English language is not meant to be a difficult process and shouldn’t be taught as such. Our instructors provide an easy to learn and use atmosphere to allow your employees to gain the knowledge and verbal practice of the language to use it as they learn it. Whether your employees are starting as beginners or brushing up on the skills that they have, these courses will add value and satisfaction to both the company and employee.

The Gannon & Gannon Language School was founded by Dennis and Petia Gannon with the goal of providing a better understanding and a higher level of proficiency of the English language through professional teaching and training. We believe that learning and using the English language is an important part of the educational system. We also strongly believe that using the English language doesn’t just mean reading and filling in pre-set exercises, but by being able to understand and communicate in both oral and written form.

This follows several discussions concerning the experience and quality of present and future employees where the English language is needed to remain competitive in today’s business world. In order to provide superior services, companies in today’s market must take advantage of superior opportunities.

During a class, a representative from a Sofia based IT Company had raised concerns, expressing the need to maintain their employee communication and documentation skills. The request was then made concerning the possibility of providing on-site services. After careful deliberation and consideration of all evolved, the testing and assessment was carried out to determine the extent of services needed. Although this service has been requested in the past, Gannon & Gannon had not offered this service. At the end of the meeting Gannon & Gannon had decided to extend their present one-on-one and group training to encompass the growing corporate need for the services needed. Based on a case by case need, Gannon & Gannon will be providing “On-Site” consulting, testing and language instruction to meet the corporate needs.

Education is an important tool in any industry and should be made available to everyone.

February 2010 – Gannon & Gannon Language School has been awarded the IEERA International Award for Outstanding Institutional Member for the year of 2009.

In a drive to offer students more choices to further their education, Gannon & Gannon Language School has signed agreements with schools and facilities located in The United States, Canada, Ireland, and in Germany. These additional resources give the students attending classes the opportunity to choose how and when they participate in a program such as this. It is an excellent way to expand their knowledge of other cultures while being immersed in the language that they choose to study.

The study abroad programs focus on various programs that will help the student adjust and further their education to become competitive in today’s economical society. Acting as an agent for these programs allows Gannon & Gannon Language School to evaluate the student needs and to introduce them to an overseas school that will fulfill their desire to enter into the study abroad program. The advantage of using a school such as Gannon & Gannon Language School to help arrange the study abroad program is that the language requirements of the schools abroad can be met prior to enrollment into the selected program.

Many schools abroad require certification standard be met for certain schools and being a TESOL Authorized Certification and training center, Gannon & Gannon Language School can take care of this requirement. The TESOL Certification Program is an intensive course which provides participants with professional knowledge and skills in Teaching as well as tools for their own reflection and growth as teachers.

By preparing the student prior to entrance in to a university or another school of higher learning greatly decreases possible future trouble of not completely understanding the courses taught. This preparation dramatically increases the grade average of the student and allows them to get the most out of their education experience.

The Gannon & Gannon Language School was founded by Dennis and Petia Gannon in 2006, with the goal of providing a better understanding and a higher level of proficiency of the English language through professional teaching and training. Using communicative and student-centered methodology can make the educational process more effective, and enjoyable. Teaching in an easily understood manner has proven to help others learn to appreciate the different cultures.

ClockBack on May 18th 2009 the children from school #46 that were the beginning of the Time4Tots program started by the Gannon & Gannon Language School put on a play performed in both Bulgarian and English. The play was a huge success and the children performed great. Now as the new school year begins, the Director of school #46 asked the children to perform at the Bulgarian National Theater on September 18th for “The Day of Sofia” a holiday celebrated each year in Sofia, Bulgaria.
With no hesitation the children who put on the play “The Enormous Turnip” were once again ready to perform. This is a fantastic honor for all of the children and a show of appreciation for all of the hard work that they put into their performance and to help celebrate this holiday for the city. We hope that these continued efforts will inspire others to help the children in their communities.

The play was a huge success and the children performed great. This play was written by their second grade teacher and then translated, the children learned their lines in a very short period. For most of the children in the play, the English language is their 3rd language so it made the task even tougher. Pictures from this event will be posted soon on the time4tots website.
