Principles that make learning easy

Optimize how to learn

How the language is taught determines how fast and comfortably you develop. Learn by doing one step at a time explained in a way that makes sense.

Improve quickly by making English a habit, not something you 'study'.

Form over content

Too much content when the form is not stable causes confusion and frustration. First master the form with simple words, then add vocabulary, one word at a time.

Simply Better English lets you master the form of the language in your lived life and work-world.

The rubber on the road

Personalized content from your life keeps you motivated and the learning relevant. Keep it real by focussing your learning on your life, the people you know, and what you need to do with English.

The Simply Better English personalized learning journey makes learning real and self-motivating.

Frequently asked questions

WHAT DO I GET WHEN I START THE COURSE?

You get immediate access to all course lessons from the moment you join. And the course layout is incredibly easy to use. You’ll be learning effortlessly just a few minutes from now.

CAN I TAKE THE COURSE AT MY OWN PACE?

Yes! The course will be available to you without limitation forever. You can go back and forth as much as you like, whenever you like.

HOW LONG IS THE COURSE? WILL I HAVE TIME FOR THIS?

This course has been designed to deliver the maximum amount of value in the minimum amount of time. The online training should take about seven hours hours to work through. It has been cut up into short 15 Min. lessons and chapters of five minutes or less. So you can take small steps and easily refer back to any lesson or topic whenever needed.

WHY IS THE GUIDED PART LIMITED TO EIGHT WEEKS?

The guided part of the course is focussed on 8 weeks to help you learn better! Starting by learning step-by-step 5-15 min. a day for eight weeks is simply the best way to quickly and easily improve the English you need. After that you have as much time as you want to practice everything in the course so that it becomes a habit that, like riding a bike, you cannot unlearn. 

WHAT IF I STRUGGLE TO KEEP UP?

Simply Better English comes with a 16-week email accompaniment process that walks you through each module and provides reminders to review course materials. It's like someone is holding your hand through the entire course.

DO I NEED TO BUY ANYTHING EXTRA?

Nope. Everything you need is included in the course. If you order the 'online' version without live Zoom trainings, you can order the 8 week Live Zoom training package at any time.

WHICH WEBINAR TOOLS DO YOU USE?

At the moment we prefer zoom for ease of use and because of the breakout rooms allowing for small group work. For company private courses we can also use the tool you prefer.

CAN I EXPENSE THIS OR WRITE IT OFF?

I don't claim to be an accountant, but participants are often able to get their training reimbursed by their company or write it off as a training expense for their small business.

IS YOUR SERVER GDPR CONFORM?

Our server is in Amsterdam and is subject to European GDPR regulations and standards. 

DO YOU OFFER BULK PRICING?

Give us a call. I am sure we can work something out that we can both be happy with.
