BeNative Pro
& BeNative Premium

For the local markets we serve in East Asia, our platforms BeNative Pro (Korea, China) and BeNative Premium (Japan) teach customers business English. For these local markets, we realized that existing language services could not provide business English education because the expressions and terms that real entrepreneurs use were often different from day-to-day English. After some trial and error, we discovered that the most successful way to teach business English was to extract the most commonly used business expressions from a large database of real business interviews.
