Is your corporate language English?
Do your colleagues need to speak English with international clients and colleagues? Do they need to be more accurate, persuasive, and confident in English?
Since 2009, we have been bringing smart, dynamic training to Dutch and international companies and organizations in the Netherlands, with a focus in Amsterdam, Den Haag, Amstelveen and Rotterdam. Our native speaker English trainers keep participants engaged and motivated with highly active, relevant classes.
We offer smart intensive and weekly courses for individuals and groups, all fully customized to deliver the most value for your busy team – business English training the way you want it, never “one-size -fits-all” standardized courses.
Business English proficiency begins with top English Center trainers
Communication is an art, and teaching it requires a particular kind of professional talent. Your English Center trainer is a native English speaker from the US, UK, Australia or Canada, but she lives and works in the Netherlands. She has been chosen for a particular set of qualities, including academic qualifications, creativity, passion for teaching, flexibility, drive and, perhaps most importantly, social intelligence. That social emotional intelligence is what separates average teachers from the great ones, because teaching language is a deeply human experience.
A great review from our client, Turkstream
“We are extremely happy with the services of the English Center. We have organized in-company group courses for our new hires from Russia and Turkey. The teachers are wonderful, they are patient and able to adjust their teaching style to each participant of the group. Thanks to the professional support from the English Center our colleagues were able to improve from beginner to a (upper) intermediate level in one year time, moreover, our colleagues feel confident to speak and write freely.” ––12/2020, Lucy van der Vlist-Jansen, Senior HR business partner – Recruiter a.i. at South Stream Transport BV
