Aussie projects in Catalonia: IMMERSCOM

We start here some short interviews to Aussies living in Catalonia, if you want to be part of it, send us an email.

Here you have the words of Andrews Ambrosius, who started his business 3 years ago, it's called IMMERSCOM and it's about business English training.

When did you come to Catalonia?

I moved to Catalonia 5 years ago, in 2007.

Do you know more Aussies living here?

Yes I know some, they all live in Barcelona though and I live in Manresa. I think I am pretty much the only Australian who lives in Manresa.

What is your project about?

My project is Residential Business English courses, basically we take Executives and business people out of the city and relocate them to a very nice comfortable rural environment for 5 days and immerse them in business and social English. They get to practice English for the entire week. We work on making them feel more confident with their English in many different situations. We develop presentation skills, telephoning skills, negotiation skills and many, many other useful business skills that people can apply straight away in their business life.

Was it difficult to get started?

The project is still only 3 years old, it is slow, especially with the crisis but we’ re happy with the outcome, people really enjoy the courses and that is rewarding. The group sizes are small but this allows us to offer a very high and detailed level of customer service. We are hoping to expand the number of courses we hold per year as well as the number of participants.

Are you optimistic about the future of your project?

Yes, I am very optimistic, it is a great product, our facilities are fantastic and people really learn what they need in a short period of time.
