Manager/Director Comments

“We are building a new refinery in Thailand, starting from the ground up.  We have to recruit the total refinery staff of around 400 people.  Much of the language we use in the refining business, or the continuous processing business, is specialized and it means special things that it may not mean in the ordinary course of conversation.  

So we developed the 500-word glossary, or vocabulary words, that we use in the everyday world of the refining business and we asked the teachers to bring these into the classrooms so that words like valve or pump or shutdown or startup or things like this, which are everyday bread and butter language in refineries often, would not be strange and they would have common meaning.

The things that attracted us (to ICAL) are the speed with which they can reach what we’ve chosen to use as established standards in English Language training and that progress can be objectively assessed as the course progresses.  And, also, the methodology that gives you a higher degree of confidence that you will have spent your money wisely and well and at the end of the day we will have achieved, very largely, the objectives we set out to.”

- Tony Sawyer, Star Petroleum Refining Company

“I am the project manager here in the training center of Turkish Airlines, in Istanbul.  Our students, they want to continue, really, after the six weeks, they want to continue with more advanced levels, to continue with the Accelerative Learning system again, because they have tried classic methods in other courses, and they really learned with the Accelerative Learning.”

- Sevil Koraltan, Turkish Airlines

“ICAL is the best kept secret in the training world.”

- Kim Rhule, Mellon Bank
