About The English Center

It all started with an American in Amstelveen

The English Center was founded in 2009 by American Brenda de Jong-Pauley, MA.

Serving Amstelveen, Amsterdam, and The Hague, the English Center approach follows Brenda’s values and training in psychology and education. Brenda also draws on her international business experience to create a learning atmosphere that is welcoming, challenging, and highly personalized. And Brenda has listened to her clients, who have consistently demanded professional native-speaker teachers. This is especially important for our Dutch clients, who are often already at an intermediate to advanced level of business English and need to get the nuanced, advanced training that only a native-speaker can provide.

With a team of carefully selected native-speaker teachers from the UK, the US , Canada and Australia, we help individuals, groups and corporations achieve their English goals.

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have taken all courses online with Zoom. And while we miss our great locations and seeing clients in person, Zoom courses have allowed us to continue providing quality business English training for individual and corporate clients from our region and all over the world.

Would you like to speak with us about business English training? We offer intensive courses and English immersion courses (as soon as social distancing regulations permit), plus private, group and in-company training. Let’s begin with a free consultation on Zoom.

Would you like to read more about private training, small group training and in-company training.

Finally, you can ring us at +31 20 823 0569. We are happy to speak with you in English or Dutch. Let’s talk!

We believe in:

  • the power of native-speaker training
  • interactive, personalized lessons
  • client-centric training
  • quality customer service
  • empowered teachers and students
  • the transformative power of language
