Private Business English training – personalized just for you and your career – is a smart way to improve your professional English language skills. With focused attention from a native-speaker trainer, you will develop exactly the Business English vocabulary and skills you need to improve your job performance and confidence.

Our speciality is customized private Business English training

Customized private Business English training is our passion. The course content will be based on you and your professional role, tasks and goals.

Is this weekly private Business English course right for me?

This weekly course is appropriate for intermediate and advanced levels. This course will help you develop the English skills that matter most to YOU. Your course will be fully customized for your English level, goals and career, but it will include some or all of these–

  • More fluency, confidence and pleasure speaking English.
  • Better listening and reading comprehension.
  • Understanding of diplomatic language.
  • Improved grammar and reduced errors.
  • Better sentence structure.
  • Bigger vocabulary.
  • Correct use of idioms.
  • More confident participation in meetings.
  • Better English writing.
  • Improved presentation skills.

Where does this private Business English training take place? Can I also take the course online?

Weekly Business English training is offered live online via Zoom and in person in great classrooms in the heart of Amsterdam, Den Haag and Amstelveen.

In-person training in Amsterdam takes place in the beautiful, artistic Museum Quarter close to the Vondelpark and Van Gogh Museum, and at 2 historic canal houses, just minutes from Amsterdam Centraal Station, plus at the Ijsbaanpad (close to the A10 and Amstelveenseweg). And of course, we can train you at your office.

How long is a private Business English course? How many weeks?

One-to-one private Business English courses are typically between 10 and 20 hours. You can take just one lesson per week, or more. These courses usually take about 2 months to complete. Many clients renew their learning package to continue improving and performing better in English at work.

Will I receive a certificate?

A PDF certificate of successful completion can be requested for any course. All Business English certificates carry the CEDEO logo to show that we are approved providers of customized Business English training.

What happens in a private Business English course?

That depends on you and your professional situation and goals, plus your strengths and weaknesses. Some clients focus on a range of Business English skills, while others want a laser focus on just one skill area – for example, diplomatic language or increasing vocabulary and idiom. Whatever has the most value for you!

Will I use a Business English book?

Some clients use a book or books, and some do not. Some clients use digital materials (generally provided free) and some use our video app. This is customized training, so every client is evaluated and coached on an individual basis. You are unique and so is your course.

It’s also important to know that we will encourage you to bring your work to the training sessions. We want to “ground” the training in your real day-to-day work.

When can I start my private Business English training?

We can generally start a private Business English course within 7 to 10 days. Private courses are offered year round.

Will my trainer be a native speaker?

Yes, all English Center trainers are native speakers and members of our Amsterdam-based team. They come from the US, the UK, Ireland and Australia. They are qualified, well-educated professionals who will build your skills and confidence from the first meeting.
