There is nothing more important to the success of your English course than your English trainer.

Our native-speaker trainers bring you an intelligent, communicative and personalised approach. We keep the focus of your private English course firmly on you and your goals. But what are you looking for?

There are countless reasons to study English.

For many of our clients, the motivation is professional development. If that describes you, then you are looking for business English courses, and you can click here. But what are some other reasons for learning better English?

1. Travel: English is the world’s global language, and it’s spoken by millions of people in many countries. If you want an all purpose-travel language, English is almost surely your best choice.

2. Education: Dutch and expat high school students often need help completing difficult assignments and passing tough exams, especially the famously challenging “eindexamen.”

3. Higher education: English is the language of higher education in many countries. In the Netherlands, where The English Center is located, many university courses are delivered in English. That means that expat entry often requires an English test such as the IELTS, Plus both students and faculty/staff have to perform well in English. Professors may be experts in their own fields and read well in English, but need better spoken English to communicate well with students. And students who have passed high school English may still find higher-education-level English too difficult without extra help (tutoring).

4. Better general writing: Young people and professionals often need to “up their game” (improve) when it comes to writing English that sounds native, is concise, and is written in the right register.

5. Better academic writing: University students writing a thesis or dissertation may need focused training to understand how to correctly construct their important academic papers.

6. Test and interview prep: Young people and adults may wish to follow English test prep or interview prep courses to be sure that they will pass with the score required. Typical tests to prep for are the IELTS, the Hotel School admissions test and some the GMAT. And some schools require an admission interview, thus spoken English has to be good.

7. Personal Interest: Some adults study English simply because they enjoy the language and want to learn more about it. They may be interested in English culture or history, or they may simply enjoy the challenge and stimulation of learning a new language.

8. Communication with friends & family: In this international world, adults and children may have friends or family members who speak English as their first language or second language, providing a common language that bridges national borders.

9. Immigration: If you are moving to another country, such as Australia or England, you will need to prove your English ability. Both countries accept the IELTS.

10. Performing Arts and Literature: Some clients simply want to read and fully understand English novels, newspapers, etc.  Or enjoy a world class Shakespeare play or a Broadway show in English.
