Be a part of the business conversation without having to worry about making mistakes, learn to listen and discover that once you relax, you understand a lot more. Conversation first, pronunciation and grammar on a need to know basis.

That’s the Byte Sized English approach.

By talking to me, a German speaking, native speaker of English, about topics that are affecting you and your work, relevance and motivation is assured. I help you to communicate more effectively in English right now, wherever you are on your language learning expedition. I teach you what you need to know first according to your career or business situation and needs.

Each time 

we focus on your next communication challenge.

My favourite classroom is in the nature, because outdoors we are relaxed, yet focused, it’s a dynamic combination.

WhatsApp support with vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation keeps your mind ticking over in English as a fundamental part of this digital immersion programme.

  • Food 70% 70%
  • Skill Level 40% 40%
  • Fun 90% 90%

Lets walk and talk in English. This is a great way to relax, allowing the words to flow. Making this not only unique but also incredibly efficient: exercise in the fresh air stimulates the brain, making it easier to remember and use the new vocabulary and the grammar just slips into place.

It’s easy, one step at a time.

“Improving my Business English has never been so enjoyable.”

Walk & Talk

This revolutionary blended learning Business English solution has been constantly developed and improved since introducing it in Bavaria in 2006.

It’s something that my clients really love because they feel like they aren’t learning at all.

It makes learning literally as easy as a walk in the park, making this an excellent alternative to surviving conventional meeting room training.

BEST Half Day Intensives

Business English Sociable & Tasty

1. Cafe (30 minutes)

Let’s ease ourselves into English with a coffee and some small talk, getting to know each other and finding out what today’s communication focus will be. 

2. Walk & Talk (75 Minutes)

The great thing about being in the nature is that the panic about speaking in English just seems to disappear. Just you and I, no pressure.  I drive the conversation and help you find any words that you used to know or need to know. As the words start to flow, I challenge you to express yourself with more precision and power, based on the communication focus we identified. Every time we meet, I have less to correct. 

3. Lunch (75 minutes)

By now we will have worked up an appetite and your head will probably be spinning after concentrating on your English for so long, so you might well enjoy a glass of wine with your meal (that’s why these tend to be on a Friday afternoon). We chat about the week ahead as we wait for our food to arrive and then as we wait for coffee or dessert, I give you some more detailed language feedback. We also schedule our Virtual Coaching Webinar. 

4.  Virtual Coaching Webinar (30 minutes)

Based on the language feedback I captured on my smartphone during the walk, I will prepare conversation based tasks where you will be using those new words and structures. If there are any new or unfamiliar language elements I will explain them first. If you have any questions bring them to the webinar and we can explore them in detail. 

Most of my Half Day Intensive clients start by buying just one session, after all, they are quite an investment.

But nearly everyone wants to come again so it makes sense for you to book a series of four sessions and book in advance because I only run them once a week, usually Fridays, from 10am to 1pm.  The clients making the fastest progress come every second month for a year and then they don’t really need to come any more.

My clients tell me that because it is such an enjoyable way to ‘work on’ their Business English, we focus on something specific each time that brings them closer to their goals – no fluff!

It’s not something they want to be without. They love the fact that they can reach me at any time during that time for questions, corrections and WhatsApp support with anything. That assurance is gold dust!

As their English improves, they start looking for more opportunities to use their English. Clients that started with an real fear of speaking in English are now using their English to do exciting things in their careers and businesses.
