The Randstad-Myngle offer is in line with Randstad’s ambition to be a leader in shaping the world of work. Language proficiency is extremely important in today’s global workplace, and understanding and communicating with people in different countries is essential to people’s professional development. The benefits of language training through Myngle work both ways: teachers in various developing countries are able to earn a higher income by becoming a language teacher than they could otherwise, thereby improving their quality of life. And students anywhere in the world can learn the (exotic) language they want, at their own pace and convenience.
Visitors of Randstad Education can take the language lessons of their choice. All students have to do, is select a language, decide on the budget they are willing to spend, and choose a teacher, based on the qualifications of the teacher in question. Lessons can be scheduled at any time, overstepping geographical borders and time zones. The language lessons are operated by Myngle, using Myngle’s Virtual Classroom, which provides all the tools for an effective online lesson.
In addition, visitors of the website can enter a competition and have a chance to win a lesson voucher worth € 50, and even a trip to Paris, in celebration of Randstad’s 50th anniversary this year.
