Corporate English training

There is a lot of money spent on English training in large and small corporations. From what I can gather it can consist of a limited amount of contact with an English language instructor, often a native English speaker. This contact can be as seldom as once a week and often in a group. In the period between these English learning sessions the employee-students often do very little, because they are either too busy or not very interested.?? I am interested in learning more about how effective this corporate English learning is and what conditions make it most successful.

Of course I feel that The Linguist is an ideal medium for improving all English language skills, listening, reading, writing, and speaking. However, all of our successful learners are self-motivated and find the time to study a little bit most days. I wonder if it is possible to achieve that degree of self-motivation in a random group of learners in an employee English language training situation.
