Our story

Learnship was founded over a decade ago in Cologne, Germany and we’ve since grown into the world’s largest digital business language and cultural skills provider. Our heritage lies in trainer-led learning but in 2019, we acquired GlobalEnglish, a pioneer of online learning for global enterprises. Their 20+ years of online experience, and deep understanding of global organizations, combined with our unique learning methodology and technology, has allowed us to build a complete learning solution that includes self-paced, trainer-lead and next-gen blended training.

Our unique approach

One of the biggest barriers to cross-cultural collaboration is cultural friction. A lack of language skills and cultural intelligence hinders communication and creates tension.

We tackle this issue by providing:

Precision Learning™

Focused on the business, language and cultural skills that matter.

Contextual Content™

Practical learning materials based on real-world business scenarios.

Dynamic Deployment™

A flexible approach to training delivery. Learners can choose between self-paced, trainer-led and next-generation blended courses.

All of this is supported by the very best trainer talent and a progressive and constantly-evolving learning methodology based on over 20 years’ experience.
