Beyond its status as the de-facto language of business, English is today a strategic resource at all levels of a company. Not only is it essential for employee mobility and evolution, but it is also the dominant language of the internet, of technical documentation and, more generally, of information and knowledge.
With the growing importance of international clients and markets, the ability to do business in English has become a key competitive and commercial company asset.
Contrary to other forms of English language training (study trips, courses, or conventional "e-learning" for example), the low per-user cost of English Attack! allows it to be deployed right across all levels of any organization.
The accessibility and attractiveness of our digital immersion content ensures that employees truly engage with their training, thus guaranteeing effective language learning.
The English Attack! solution for companies consists of a dedicated learning platform and price plans designed for businesses.
Usage statistics* that speak for themselves
The digital immersion method for learning English developed by English Attack! creates much higher engagement among learners than more conventional e-learning approaches, which often fall into disuse shortly after being deployed.
Current, authentic English language content like film clips, news, and music strengthen learner motivation with every visit, a process reinforced by the English Attack! motivational ecosystem which features points, achievement level cards, and badges.
The depth of the catalogue of learning units (video-based exercises and visual dictionaries) ensures that learners can use the platform very often without ever getting bored.
The formats of the learning units allow learners to switch from one type of exercise to another - thus allowing for sustained concentration - over the course of a relatively short average session time (41 minutes).
An accessible solution for your training needs
The English Attack! for Companies solution allows your employees to improve their English autonomously.
The wide range of pedagogical content - covering all levels of English - combined with our digital immersion approach, maximizes every employee's learning autonomy and commitment to his or her training objective.
100% web-based, English Attack! requires no installation of software and can be used in the workplace as well as at home. The site is also multi-platform, with 15% of site users using a smartphone or tablet computer.
If you'd like to offer your employees an even more comprehensive learning solution, our Companies platform allows you to use the online content in combination with Trainer accounts.
This allows you to implement a blended learning program or distance-learning courses.
Pedagogical content designed for your company
Comprising over 1,000 videos and over 5,000 vocabulary photos, English Attack! exercises cover many subjects related to the world of business and industry (Business English, glossaries for different sectors and jobs, etc).
If you are a large company and would like to add more specialized content, our multi-media editorial team and pedagogical experts can create learning units specific to your industry or your brand or company: for example, video-based exercises based on your - or competitors' - advertising; news items; training videos; or executive interviews.

College students talk about the “Freshman 15.” That’s the typical number of credit hours a full-time student takes during a semester. Some also claim it’s the number of pounds students gain eating dorm food and studying all night.
New work from researchers at Washington University in St. Louis confirms that most students do, indeed, gain weight in college. Reporting in theJournal of American College Health, the research team found that about 70 percent of students gained a significant amount of weight between the start of college and the end of sophomore year.
“It wasn’t surprising,” says principal investigator Susan S. Deusinger, Ph.D., professor and director of the Program in Physical Therapy at the School of Medicine. “Normally, eating habits in this group are not great. Most don’t eat five fruits and vegetables per day, and many don’t get enough exercise.”
In exchange for measuring their height and weight and asking them to fill out questio…
On the evening of April 14, 1912 a number of first-classpassengers on the Titanic revelled in a privately hosted feast in the first-class á la carte restaurant. At the same time in the first-class dining saloon other first-class passengers - some who had paid the equivalent of $124,000 in today's dollars for the ocean voyage - settled in for a sumptuous, if over-filling, ten-course extravaganza. Meanwhile, in the second-class dining saloon, second-class passengers ate a less elaborate but beautifully served dinner. And on F deck in what would be called "steerage" in lesser vessels, third-class passengers ate simply prepared, hearty meals served in their own spartan dining saloon.
Several hours later, in the early morning of April 15th, the Titanic sank taking 1581 passengers and crew - many well fed and lubricated - to their untimely deaths.
