Important questions answered

1. Can I take a crash course in business English online and/or onsite? 

You can take the course at one of our beautiful locations in Amsterdam, Amstelveen or The Hague, at your home or office, online, or a hybrid combination. In short, The English Center is very flexible and a lot is possible.

2. How long is the course?

The duration of a course is usually 1, 2 or 3 weeks, depending on the availability of the student. Most participants complete the course in 20 to 50 hours. Feel free to inquire about the possibilities in terms of schedule and pace. We are happy to think along with you.

3. What does a course day look like?

Our speed course in business English is really a deep-dive into English. After all, that’s how you learn the fastest. Depending on your personal goals, this can mean all aspects of the English language or, alternatively, a laser focus on one skill – whichever is most valuable to you.
