Personalized Private English & Academic English Lessons.

The English Center’s fully personalized Private English Course is a smart, interactive way to improve your English language skills and to get started speaking English from day one. With focused attention from a native-speaker teacher, you will develop the English vocabulary, grammar structures, pronunciation and other skills you need to reach your goals – whether that’s academic success or just confident social English conversation in a cafe.

How many hours is this private English course?

This is a short private English course of 6 hours.

You can take just one private English lesson per week – or more. Many clients renew their learning package to continue improving in social or academic English.

Is there a private English course near me? Can I also take the course online?

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

In-person lessons in Amsterdam take 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) locations.

When can I start my private English course?

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

Will my English teacher be a native speaker?

Yes, all English Center teachers 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.

Customized private English is our speciality.

Is a weekly private English course right for me?

This weekly course is appropriate for high beginner to 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 and goals, but it will include some or all of these–

  • Better social or academic English.

Will I receive a certificate?

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

Will I use a book?

Some clients use a book or several books, and some do not. Some clients use digital materials 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.

Is this tutoring?

For academic clients, these lessons will definitely take the shape of tutoring. Academic clients are asked to bring their books, assignments, etc., to the lessons so that we can ensure the learning is relevant to your learning goals.

Social English clients will also be encouraged to bring their interests and goals to the training sessions. We will work together, as partners in your English language development.

Will I have just one teacher?

We will match you with a native-speaker teacher from our Amsterdam-based team. They will get to know you, your goals, interests, and learning style.

What will I work on in my private English course?

This private weekly course will help you develop the English skills that matter most to YOU. Your course will be fully customized for your life, your level, and your interests and goals. Many social English clients work on grammar, reading, vocabulary, pronunciation and day to day emails.

Academic clients often need training in advanced vocabulary, academic jargon and reading, as well as ongoing support in exam preparation, and participating in debates or presentations.
