The role-play sessions for this program have been designed to be completed 1:1 to work directly with your Coach.
You have to complete 3 steps in every simulation. First, you need to schedule a time when you will meet your coach. We recommend you to book the role-play session as soon as you start every simulation.
Then, you will learn about a specific business communication skill where you will first learn about cross-cultural differences and steps to follow when communicating with business professionals. Next, in a series of bite-sized 10 minute micro-lessons, you will learn how to put these steps into action.
This part will take you about 90 minutes (around 20 minutes each day). You need to complete all of your lessons before you meet your coach.
Finally, you will practice the business communication skill in the role-play, facilitated by your coach. This part will take you about 45 minutes.
After each role-play session, your coach will assess your business communication skills.
You will receive the assessment results of each session in the launcher. In case you want to review the total score of your learning programme you can check the profile menu.
To assess each of the skills, we use a four point scale in the following way:
4. Exceeds expectations: Can demonstrate the skills to a very high standard.
3. Meets expectations: Can demonstrate the skill independently.
2. Below expectations: Can demonstrate the skill with support.
1. Needs improvement: Struggles to demonstrate the skill.
The color that you will see for each of the skills in the overall skill diagram will be the most frequent result from all the simulations evaluated so far.
Throughout your programme, your coach will assess your skills on three main skill groups, which are:
-Attitude: The willingness to adjust your behaviour to the situation you face.
-Outcome: The impact of your communication on your colleagues.
-Messaging: The use of different communication techniques to deliver your message.
Each of the groups mentioned above contains 9 skills. Keep in mind that not all skills are assessed in all simulations and in the same way, this will depend on the purpose of each one.
We have a strict data protection policy to protect our learners and Coaches.
Recordings are held for 14 days for internal QA purposes and in case any problems arise for which they are needed.
They are not available for general review.
You can access the lessons that you have already completed through the Library that you will find in the Simulations page on the bottom right of your app. Remember that the score you obtained for each course is final and cannot be changed by repeating the lessons.
If you want a quick way to practice the phrases you’ve learnt in each simulation, you can review the Essentials as many times as you need.
No, since your payment will be processed by Apple store or Google Play store, your payment information will be only stored in any of these platforms.
In this case, it’s necessary to contact Goggle Play / Apple store directly to find out the reason for the incorrect amount.

For each role-play you might have a different coach. All our Coaches are qualified professionals with a range of business experience as well as English language teaching qualifications.
Some of the coaches are native English speakers, and some are from countries all over the world.
If you can’t finish your lessons on time, you can book a new session through the To-Do list menu by tapping ‘Rebook your session’. You can do this up to 24 hours before your meeting time.
If you haven’t completed all of your lessons 1 hour before your meeting time, your meeting will be automatically cancelled and you will be given up to 3 options for rebooking.
Please keep in mind that you can only rebook once. If you miss your meeting again, you will be moved to the next simulation.
If you have a problem during your role-play, please contact Riku by going back to the launcher and type “help”.
If you can’t attend your scheduled session, you can reschedule your session through the To-Do list menu by tapping ‘Rebook your session’.
In the first 24 hours after booking, you can do this unlimited times. After the first 24 hours you can only reschedule once, as long as it’s done up to 24 hours before your meeting time.
Before confirming to cancel your current session, you can review up to 3 available options to reschedule. If you cannot attend any of the available options, check again later.
If you do not join your rescheduled session because your lessons are not completed, you will be moved to the next course.
If you complete all the lessons on time but don’t show up, you will have one more opportunity to book a new session.
At the beginning of each simulation, you will see a booking calendar where you can choose your preferred date and time from the available options.
We recommend you book your session as soon as possible, since the available options are limited and may be booked by other learners.
The booking range you will see will depend on your progress. If you are on track with your programme you will see a normal range between 5 to 7 days, but if you aren’t on track you will see a range to catch-up between 3 to 5 days.
Each simulation should take approximately 2.5 hours to complete, divided into micro-lessons of 10 minutes and 45 minutes of role-play.
We recommend that you complete 1 course per week, so that you can finish your learning programme on time.
If you have any questions after a session, please contact Riku and he’ll pass your message along to your coach!
