I took the Private Intensive English Course, with a focus on conversation and I learned a lot. Rose is a great and experienced teacher, with a lot of business knowledge. Rose gave her own twist on the two hour sessions, we spoke about a variety of subjects from business to casual.I enjoyed the pronunciation exercises the most, they could be difficult but gave me a more confident feeling to use English on a day to day base.I highly recommend the English Teaching centre and Rose as your native teacher!

I really enjoy my lessons at the English Center. I first took 1 on 1 lessons and i finally got ride of some of my spanglish with a super patient teacher! And now i am having a lot of fun during Business Cafe, learning ice breakers and presentation skills. They have so many options for you to learn. I highly recommend the Learning Center.

I contacted The English Center for American-English classes, focused on the accent and vocabulary. My classes started very quickly.Krys is an excellent teacher. What was most funny is that we also talked about American culture, politics, history, wildlife. As a result my classes with Krys were much broader than 'only' improving American-English.I would love to extent the lessons much further but due to other priorities that isn't possible. I might return to Krys in the future.Also big credits to Noelle for her feedback!Dit was mijn eerste keer om Engelse les te krijgen van een 'native speaker', het is erg leuk en leerzaam!!!

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.

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.
