What drives us
enjoyable, effective and inspiring
Helping you boost your confidence and communication skills
Seeing you grow both personally and professionally
Knowing that we are transforming your life with our support
Can you remember a teacher you didn’t like at school? How motivated were you to learn? You probably didn’t make a lot of progress in that one subject.
Yes, it’s not only important that you’re being taught by someone who knows what they’re doing. Your relationship to one another is just as important. If learning is enjoyable, it will be more effective.
We believe we are not only competent in what we do. We also have the right mindset. And if we can make your learning experience an exciting, dynamic and engaging one, you’ll be successful.
When we see you becoming more and more confident in your use of English, improving your language and communication skills, and achieving your goals, we know why we do what we do.
We start by getting to know you, your background, your business and your professional goals. We then move on to discuss the options and to design a personal training programme just for you (with so much more than grammar and vocabulary!). That way we can be absolutely sure that you get exactly what you need and want.
Who am I
Hello, I’m Christine, and I grew up speaking English in England. I came to Germany when I was 20, so I’ve had a lot of time to improve my German skills!
I’m an avid reader of all kinds of topics, a Nordic Walker and Smovey fitness enthusiast, a technology lover (I love my iPad, my iMac and my kitchen gadgets), a dark chocolate addict, and a green smoothie fan!
I originally trained as a Bilingual Private Secretary (that’s what my two-year full-time course was called!), and moved straight afterwards to Hamburg to work as a Personal Assistant and later as a Technical Translator.
In 2000, after two of my four children had flown the nest, I launched my own business, offering in-company (and in 2012 online) business English training, and was joined in 2015 by a small team of trainers.
Language and communication coaching and training is my passion. I couldn’t imagine doing anything else! I love working with people and knowing I’m making a difference in someone’s life, and I love learning (I hold a master’s degree in teaching modern languages to adults and am a fully certified ‘Live Online Trainer’).
