How to ask your employer to pay for your French language training

Convincing your company to fund your language training in France is much easier if you have a clear plan. Here are a few tips to present to your boss

Adrian, from Switzerland, is a consultant at one of Zurich’s leading firms working with French companies. Although he already had a fairly good understanding of French, he felt that his clients and colleagues sometimes misunderstood him because he lacked vocabulary, idiomatic expressions and he made mistakes when using verbs. To improve his French and be more at ease in most of his job situations, Adrian decided to take group courses combined with individual French lessons. In this case, Adrian identified a very clear training need, and he made significant and quick progress.

Your proposal should include how much the training will cost, the duration, where it will be held and your reasoning behind it. If you can, refer back to positive outcomes from past training among your colleagues. Present your company with a few different options.
