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.

Our corporate language training approach

  • Preliminary assessment and learning plan/schedule based on conversations with HR/L&D
  • Learner assessments via interview testing, level test, etc.
  • Private or small group training with native-speaker teachers

When I first started looking for American accent classes it was a wormhole of advertisements. I have tried a few but they didn’t end up doing anything for me. Then I tried a trial class at the English center and I immediately loved it.I learned so much more in that one class than I had learned over the past month with several different classes. I started taking classes and they have helped me so much on my accent journey.You get great explanations about different aspects of accent training with a one on one teacher who helps you better your accent. There are so many little tips and tricks I have learned that I wouldn’t have thought of myself, but are so helpful. Each class we go in depth about one or more subjects that I need to give attention to. We start class by chatting and then my teacher notes down my slip-ups and things I need to work on; my homework for the next class. My teacher is really fun and makes me feel comfortable in her class so that I feel okay with making mistakes sometimes and learn from them. I really didn’t know that accent training would be so complex but The English center makes it easy and helps you step by step.I really like these classes and I am happy that I found them! I would recommend them to everyone who is looking to better their accent!

I would recommend the English Center to anyone who wants to increase their English communication in just a couple of lessons. After 1 phone call, they immediately matched me with the perfect teacher. The whole course was so beneficial for me in multiple ways. I'll definitely approach The English Centre again if I need an extra course.

I had a very good experience with The English Center! I had a bundle of private lessons with Rose and it was a great experience, we were mostly working on my pronunciation. A lot of topics were covered in a short period of time, Rose focused on gaps I had and helped me to improve fast. Lessons were not only useful but very fun as well.

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.
