As part of our services we have launch a new forum http://www.expatsinbulgaria.net  to offer an alternative for the Expat community and Bulgaria community to find and share information and ideas. This is a private funded forum and hopefully it will serve its purpose, to meet and share with each other.

The Gannon & Gannon Language School is happy to announce that they have signed the first corporate client to the schools consulting, testing and advanced language instruction services. 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.

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. Education is an important tool in any industry and should be made available to everyone. We believe that learning and being efficient in the English language is an important part of the educational system. Knowing the English language doesn’t just mean reading and writing but by being able to understand and communicate with others.
