Would you like to improve your small talk or
talk specifically about your work, or prepare for an overseas visit where the common language is English?
Do you worry that you donít have sufficient technical expertise and vocabulary to communicate and negotiate in English during technical discussions? When communicating, it is vital to feel sure that what you say or write is, in fact, what you mean to say, without making embarrassing errors which could have serious repercussions for you or your company.
If you have doubts about your technical English and grammar skills, or simply want to ensure your level of spoken English at work and social events are more than adequate, and you want to gain even more respect as an authoritative English speaker in technical situations, youíll find TELS is the training partner you need because I am prepared to go that extra mile with and for you!
Personal one-to-one tuition is an ideal way to improve and develop your language skills. Your present language level should be at intermediate (CEF B1) or higher so that we can really get started without worrying too much about language basics, important as they are.
My clients are technicians and engineers of all levels,
scientists, managers and other professionals. Perhaps you urgently need to check that the technical English of a
paper you have written is correct, or you have to give an important lecture in English to an international company
or attend an overseas conference and need to brush-up your technical and general English.
When giving a presentation your body language should be
pleasant to look at while you are talking. This is a simple statement to make, but all too often
overlooked when preparing to give a presentation. How you appear while
talking is just as important as the presentation content itself. To describe how big something is with
both hands is quite all right, but in essence, it is your voice that should be giving the information!
Your presentation will usually be allocated a specific amount of time to be completed in. I will go through the presentation with you, listening carefully for anything that is repeated or superfluous, and timing each phase so that precious time can be optimised to ensure you complete it within the allocated time.
If you feel unsure, let me give you sensitive and polite guidance on ensuring your presentation style is appropriate for the occasion.

Besides my normal style lessons, I offer a 1.5 to 2 hour informal meeting in Bergedorf where we talk about things in general and maybe a little about your work (but not intensively) to help you improve your spoken English.
