What happens in an intensive English or Business English course?

Like a “language brainwash,” your mind starts working in English. Then when you leave the lesson, you can keep practicing your English with everyone you meet, because Amsterdammers speak great English! Some people say that English is the city’s second language. Finally, when you are ready to relax, you can use our video training program to watch and speak English videos. You will get instant feedback from the video program, so you will when you are sounding good!

Useful course for English as a second language learners, the teacher is very nice and responsible. The course is provided in a small group, with a lot of information and after-class homework. I had a very nice experience!

Not only was my time at the English Centre very useful, it was also a great pleasure. Steph is a wonderful teacher who makes the effort to adjust the course to your personal needs and wishes. Besides, she speaks with this lovely sweet and melodious British accent which I alway so much admire and am aiming for myself!

I had a great experience with The English Center. It was super easy and quick to arrange the classes in the format I expected. I want to especially recommend my teacher - Rose. Her lessons are always fun while also structured and fit to purpose. I was really impressed how Rose picked up on my pronunciation missteps and helped to improve those in a fun and interactive way! Last but not least, Rose is an amazing person, she will keep you engaged on every level, pick up on the latest world developments, recommend a nice book or laugh about recent tv show you both happened to watch.
