About Alexander Harmsen

I am an interpersonal communication expert, trainer, and coach with more than twenty-five years of international experience researching, teaching, training and coaching interpersonal communication at leading public and private organizations and for individuals in Europe, Asia, and North America.

As a Canadian world citizen of Dutch descent, I was educated in economics, general humanities, philosophy, and business administration in Canada, Belgium, and Germany. I live with my wife and daughters near the shore of Lake Constance along the German-Swiss EU border. When not being an active father and husband or pursuing life-long learning in applied linguistics and philosophical psychology, I am most likely swimming or playing guitar.

Alexander takes you on a journey from how language works to a learning process that fits like a glove.

As a passionate teacher, trainer, and coach I teach every Next Level English lesson and live webinar personally. It is my mission to put the same passion and professionalism into every aspect of your Next Level English course.


If you take the course by yourself because there is no private group for you to join, you will feel part of a likeminded learning community every time you join a live training webinar. And if you take part as a member of a private group course, great, you and your group are in good hands with one of the best and most experienced English trainers around.

For a general overview of my way of teaching English see the Next Level English page. And do reach out to find out more. I love helping customers like you improve and enjoy their English.
