- tailored, individual training for best results
The training gives you everything you need to improve your English pronunciation and English speaking!
- Word stress
Are you using emphasis and rhythm well in English?
- Vowel length
In English we have long vowels, short vowels and double vowels and many non-native speakers don’t distinguish between these correctly. For example, the words ‘coat’, ‘cot’ and ‘caught’ should each sound different. Do you know which one has the short vowel, long vowel and double vowel and are you confident with these?
- Moving and opening your mouth
English has more open sounds than many other languages. We need to open our mouth and jaw to pronounce many sounds like /o/, /a:/, /ou/ etc. clearly. If you don’t, you’ll sound like you’re mumbling. Are you using good mouth movements for clear English?
- Rate of speaking (speed)
Some non-native speakers speak English too fast. When you speak English very fast, it is likely your pronunciation and clarity will become worse. Often people’s word stress gets flatter, the might drop sounds and their vowels get shorter. Are you using a good rate of speaking in English?
- Word endings
The ends of words in English are very important. It’s often where we mark grammar like the past tense, plurals etc. Are you using past tense endings correctly? This is SO important in English.

Can I postpone a language training or coaching free of charge?

Is online training as effective as face to face training?
1:1 or 2:1 online training function like a real face to face conversation – listening, asking questions, showing interest and emotions. Screen sharing and writing new words in the chat make it feel like we’re sitting together at the table.
Is it safe to learn online?
Depending on your preferences, Jitsi, Zoom, Microsoft Teams, WebEx, Skype for Business and Free Conference Call can be used.
Jitsi.org, for example, does not require registration and no data is stored.
We can speak about working within your system if your company has certain requirements regarding online platforms.
When is a group training or an individual training more effective?
The bigger question is: what are the individual goals?
One on one (1:1) training is the better option if you have individual, professional or private language goals. Each session is tailored to exactly you and your needs.
Group training offers social connection, along with partner and group work, regular online meetings and a sense of community. You learn from each other and with each other, gaining confidence to use the target language with and in front of others.
What is language coaching and how does it differ from traditional language courses?
Traditional language teaching focuses on a curriculum or textbook. In professional language training, each session is individualized to your needs. Furthermore, the training focuses on how you learn best, what motivates you, and what your existing resources and skills are to help you achieve top results.
Every moment is linked to your stories, personal connection to the topics and remains in your memory because the conversation is relevant to you!
You are in control of your learning process. We are here to accompany and support you in reaching your goals.
