Biography

She wears her laughter lines with pride. It’s that smile in part, that puts people at ease, you see Corinne seems to have this uncanny knack of making people feel comfortable. It is mainly this approachable personality that enables her to break down those pesky inhibitions, that so many people have when they need to speak English professionally, despite years of English at school or university.

Having started her career in the highly conventional financial sector in the City of London, corporate training was often a missed opportunity in her eyes and so when she decided to escape from the big smoke and embrace the fresh air of the mountains in Bavaria, she knew that she wanted to combine learning with nature.

Having worked at management level in marketing, Corinne Wilhelm, is determined to make sure that the training she delivers is incredibly effective.

The “Language Energy Programme” combining walking and talking,  has been tweaked and improved constantly over the last 10 years, to become a very sought after and appreciated alternative to classroom English lessons or learning English in a stuffy meeting room.
