There is no English training and no trainer better!

When I needed to quickly improve my English to lead professional development workshops for international teams I didn’t have much time and I didn’t have much hope. This training was a real pleasure and the results speak (write) for themselves. Take this training … you won’t regret it.

Simply Better English training with Alexander Harmsen is the best language training you can have, period. I know because you could say I have tried every type of language training. Why is he the best? Because it is so much more than just ‘language’ training.

This training takes you into the language in a way I have never and since experienced. It is a journey from how language works to a learning process that fits this like a glove. A learning process at eye level that integrates the learning in your world and embeds it in what you need to professionally communicate in English.

The result is the network connections your brain needs for the learning to stick! Thank you! There is no English training and no trainer better!

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.
