What can Onolingo offer your company?

We strive to deliver best in class online courses and workshops that improve your employees' English skills. Founder, John Moen has over 25 years experience as a corporate trainer.

Flexible Training Options

Online Group training

Onolingo can train your employees in groups consisting entirely of employees from your company. On the other hand, if you don't have many employees whom you wish to provide training for, or if it's difficult to accommodate everyone's schedule, your employees can participate in our open-enrollment courses & workshops.

Learning in a small group is very effective, and enjoyable — on average there are only six participants in our group courses. Working with others on communicative tasks, keeps interest high, but because the group is not large, everyone has opportunity to participate.

Online One-to-one training

One-to-one training provides more intensity, and greater flexibility. Appointments can be booked with the teacher whenever it suits the learner.

In-person Workshops and Team Building Events

If you are located in the region of Frankfurt am Main Germany, we can offer you in-person Business English training in the form of partial- or full-day workshops. We also offer combined English training and Team-Building events.

Cost transparency

Our open-enrollment courses and workshops can easily be booked online. Prices are per-participant, and are clearly marked.

If you prefer your employees to learn in a group exclusive to your company, or if you choose to offer your employees one-to-one training, Onolingo's average hourly rate is €75 plus VAT.

Excellent learning materials

In many of our courses, learning materials, such as PDF files that can be downloaded from our website, video tutorials, and interactive, online practice exercises, are included at no extra cost. In some cases, however, you may prefer to purchase additional learning materials for your employees. We can advise you on this.

Flexible payment options

You can pay online via our payment provider, Stripe, or we can invoice you monthly or quarterly.

Highly secure, online learning platform

We use BigBlueButton, a purpose-built, and open-source, online learning platform, that runs in a data center in Germany. Our provider is Hetzner GmbH, one of the largest data center operators in Europe. German data protection laws are among the strictest in the world, and BigBlueButton is highly secure. All audio, video, and text communications are fully encrypted.


There are two primary reasons to offer your employees language training. The first has to do with your employees' ability to communicate with maximum effectiveness in English with customers and prospective customers, as well as suppliers and colleagues. In other words, your company has identified a genuine business need for your employees to improve, or maintain, their English skills.

The second reason, while perhaps not as easy to quantify, is no less important. Companies that provide education and skills development to their employees, such as language training, generally have happier, more motivated employees, which could lead to higher employee retention rates.

At the outset of any course or workshop, we establish learning goals, which we progressively work towards. Our training incorporates regular progress checks to ensure that learners are on track to successfully reach their goals.

Our 30-minute online assessment test

We offer an online test to check your employees’ current language level. The test takes at most 30 minutes, and can be done on a PC, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. Once you know your employees’ language levels, we will assist you setting your employee’s learning goals.
