The course, teacher and content were great. The best thing for me was that I learned through repeated simple short tasks with real content from my own life.

Helpful user stories
Anna works at a company where some customers and colleagues speak English some of the time. She needs to feel confident speaking English about her company's products and services and things that happen at work. She wants the flexibility of an online course but wants the teacher contact to practice when she needs it. For her learning style, an individual Simply Better English online English course lets her do that better than an traditional in-person group course where everybody needs to do the same thing at the same time.
Florian would like to improve his English. His challenges are that his schedule changes a lot. He often does not have the time to attend regular classes. Especially when they are in a physical location. He is hesitant about an online only course because he needs the motivation of being in a group and of being able to ask questions when he has them. The Simply Better English online English course gives Florian the flexibility of personalized group support when he needs it.

A detailed review: Peter Binetsch
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!

How right is simply better English for me?
Five keys to answering the question
"How right is Simply Better English for me?"
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.
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.
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.
Simply Better English 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.
Simply Better English trains 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. Simply Better English explains 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.
