The best of online possibilities and in-person training

The best English teacher focused on your SImply Better English company course

Alexander Harmsen has trained and coached thousands of business English speakers, teaching them how to quickly and easily improve their skills in order for them feel confident and enjoy working in English.

Before Corona he was already working on transforming this slowly perfected way of teaching into a company online English course that would replace face-to-face trainings but keep the personal contact and group feeling critical to learning success.

Almost two years of steady development have made Next Level English a tried and proven course that he is proud of. It has become one of the best of its kind because it harmonizes what is great about online learning with being able to put his passion for teaching into every live learning webinar session like it was the first one.

A detailed review: Anna Hummel

Very highly recommended!

I had heard many good things from my staff and colleagues about Alexander's 2-day presence business English seminar. But I could never understand how consultants could improve their English customer communication in just two days.

That is why I took part right away in the first online company English course customized for the business English in my company. This is in my experience a much better way to achieve the goals of the seminar: more secure and confident English customer consulting.

We could learn at our own speed. Everything was clearly laid out and explained step by step. We could immediately apply every step of the way.

The live webinar sessions were a great way to practice and consolidate the learning. And we could much better allocate the travel, food, and lodging time of an in person seminar to learning!

I very highly recommend this company online English course with Alexander to others who want to learn business English in a practical way that makes sense.

How right is Next Level English for our company?

Five keys to answering the question
"How right is Next Level English for our company?"

Starting levels

Neither too low nor too high

If you are a low beginner (A1) this course will probably be too difficult for you. And if your English is already too good (C1/C2) it might not be enough of a challenge for you. The course will be too difficult for you if you cannot understand slow spoken easy to understand English in the videos and during the Zoom webinars. It will be too boring if you have already mastered most of the things you will learn in the course.

Check out this helpful level chart to help you decide. Or, if you need more detail, here is the official CEFR chart in English and in German.


Enough pain to stay motivated

The more you need English the more your English will improve in the course. Our experience tells us that it might be too difficult to motivate yourself to do what you need to succeed in the course if you do not need English at work or for an urgent private event or relationship.

The following bad 'joke' can help make the point: How do you get an 80-year-old to learn English fast? Get him or her a 25-year-old lover. The point is that it is very hard to change when there is no reason to change. That is, when not changing does not cause enough pain.

Time commitment

Enough time to turn what you learn into a habit

The more committed you are to practicing at least 5-15 minutes a day the faster this course can help you improve.

Some people say that it takes 21 days to change a habit. For example, if you want to get in the habit of getting up earlier (not forcing your self out of bed after hitting the snooze button 7 times), you need to do it twenty-one days in a row. The point is that what you do not do regularly is very hard to learn, and even harder to make into an automatic habit.

Your Next Level English company online English course breaks English up into small steps that you can practise any time anywhere. But that means that to succeed in the course you need to in fact practice every small step!


Being open to new ways of seeing, thinking about, feeling your lived world

The more open you are to new ways of seeing, thinking, and feeling about your lived world, the faster you can improve your English.

One of the most challenging and rewarding parts of improving your English is accepting that English does not map the universe and does not prioritize what must be communicated the same way as your native language does. Much more than translating your native language word for word into English, improving your English asks you to see, think, and feel about the world in a different way.

Your Next Level English company online English course will train this different seeing, thinking, and feeling. That is what makes it meaningful, instead of mechanical.

Comfort and acceptance

Being comfortable making mistakes and accepting help from others

The more comfortable you are making mistakes the more likely you are to let other people help you when you do, and the easier it will be to improve very fast in this course.

One challenge to learning a language is that everything happens at once: and you cannot be perfect in everything at once. The only way to focus on what you are learning one step at a time, is to ignore as much of everything else as possible. Next Level English explains and trains this. This works best when you are comfortable making mistakes in steps you have not mastered.

Another challenge is not carrying the burden ‘to be perfect’ all by yourself. When you are speaking English one or more people are involved. This course teaches you how to use the people you are talking with as your teachers. People who are comfortable making mistakes tend to also be comfortable accepting help from others.
