Even before Corona, he was working on the best way to evolve in-person seminars and courses into best in class blended learning online training programs.


The result is the best way for adults who have had English in school to finally get good at it, understand it, and enjoy using it at work.

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 his first online plus live webinar version of the seminar 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 Simply Better English with Alexander to others who want to learn business English in a practical way that makes sense.

Frequently asked questions

Can’t find the answer you’re looking for? Reach out..

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.

WHAT IF I STRUGGLE TO KEEP UP?

No worries. It is not about keeping up! You can go as fast or slow as you feel comfortable. A smart email impulse and motivation program will remind of your next steps so that you don't get 'to' lazy 🙂 This is not a competition. It is about you improving at your speed from one comfort zone to the next.

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 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.

ARE YOUR SERVERS AND THE COURSE GDPR CONFORM?

Yes. Our servers in Amsterdam are subject to European GDPR regulations and standards. And all information and content is hosted on our servers and managed according to GDPR regulations.

DO YOU OFFER BULK PRICING?

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