Why choose The English Training Company? 

We have seen many good professionals and companies miss opportunities because they didn’t feel equal to their English speaking colleagues and clients.

And we understand how you feel, because the same has also happened to us. In my case, I had to also start delivering training programs in Spanish (Communication and Leadership Courses in Airbus Spain) as well as doing public speaking in Spanish at Toastmasters Madrid & TM Spain (I’m a former Toastmasters President).

So I started The English Training Company to change that.

And we want to empower you to feel equal to your English speaking colleagues and clients. You deserve to feel equal and to take business and career opportunities in English with both hands!

Bien preparadas, entretenidas y útiles

Steve es un gran profesor, ameno y metódico en sus clases, y siempre dispuesto a profundizar sobre los temas de interés de sus alumnos y alumnas. Sus clases se basan en lecturas y comentarios de temas de actualidad con enfoques poco habituales, que obligan a pensar, a desarrollar un discurso propio en inglés y a defenderlo en clase. Son sesiones muy entretenidas, y a la vez muy preparadas. Este método a mí me resulta muy útil tanto para refrescar términos como para perfeccionar la conversación en ámbitos especializados.

Dinámicas y amenas

He recibido clases de inglés durante muchos años, y no siempre han sido buenas o productivas. Con Steve las clases son dinámicas y amenas a la vez que productivas y enriquecedoras. ¡Aprendes inglés sin darte cuenta! Lo que más me gusta es que Steve prepara fenomenal las clases, haciéndolas totalmente personalizadas. Cubre las necesidades de cada alumno en todo momento. Para mí Steve es un profesor TOTALMENTE RECOMENDABLE, infunde una ABSOLUTA CONFIANZA y tiene una GRAN PROFESIONALIDAD
María Nieto

Gran profesor

Empecé el curso con Steve en Marzo y reconozco que es el mejor profesor de Ingles que he tenido. Clases muy amenas donde aprendes muchísimo vocabulario y ganas confianza en ti mismo para soltarte a hablar de cualquier tema. Muy buenas las clases de exposiciones y de debate. Gran profesor.
Rafael Castro, Banco de Santander

Profesionalidad intachable

Mi experiencia con Steve fue muy positiva. Disponía de tan solo dos semanas para preparar una entrevista en un Hospital de Londres y desde el minuto 1, respondió a mis expectativas. Te da exactamente lo que necesitas con una profesionalidad intachable. Mi nivel de inglés no era muy alto pero él supo sacar de mi lo mejor para tener éxito. Así fue y ahora escribo desde Londres. Un placer, repetiría sin dudarlo ni un segundo.
Antonio Fuentes, NHS (Reino Unido) Partera

Excelente profesor

Steve es un excelente profesor de inglés. Dedica interés y tiempo en preparar sus clases, que son siempre amenas. Además, por mi trabajo tengo que hacer presentaciones orales de carácter técnico, y Steve me ha dado consejos muy efectivos para mejorarlas y conseguir mantener la atención del oyente.
Marta García, Funcionario, Head of CSN unit

Gran profesor

Método de estudio ameno y muy interactivo, alumnos-profesor que te permite ir ganando confianza y soltura en la conversación. Clases muy interesantes hablando temas de actualidad. Un gran profesor!
Agur Lekanda, Armani Trade Marketing Manager

Dinámico y entusiasta

Las clases con Steve son muy amenas, didácticas y poco a poco generan confianza en tu capacidad de entender y expresarte en inglés. Prepara a conciencia la clase de cada día y no improvisa siendo la clase flexible ya que siempre se tocan temas de actualidad y temas de interés del alumno. También te motiva para poco a poco vayas construyendo frases cada vez más complejas. Se preocupa por ir introduciendo expresiones nuevas, vocabulario y lenguaje actual. Dinámico y entusiasta.
Iván Romero, Arquitecto (autónomo)

Muy satisfactorio

Steve es un profesor nativo con una buena preparación como profesor de inglés. Prepara muy bien las clases, las hace dinámicas e incluye tanto ejercicios de speaking y listening, como de vocabulario específico en Business y algo de gramática. A parte de loanterior, es un tipo amable y de trato fácil, las clases no se hacen pesadas a pesar de ser el viernes por la tarde-noche. RESULTADO FINAL: MUY SATISFACTORIO!!
Gonzalo Labordo, KPMG Auditor

Quick progress focused on personal goals

I’d like to say ‘thanks’ to Chris because his training was the most helpful step for me in learning English.
In the first class, we formulated clear goals with KPIs as to what I expected to see improve after the course. It seemed for me strange the question about how I see my level now. But after the first session, I’ve felt more freedom and confidence, using English.
Each lesson gave me very simple and useful advice how I can be smart and sophisticated in writing English right now. After the 2 month course, I realized that we accomplished all our goals that we set at the beginning. Now I feel comfortable working in the English-speaking environment. Chris is the best person for anyone who is looking for opportunities in an international environment, but feel uncomfortable with English, who would like to make quick progress, with never boring lessons focused on personal goals.

Objetivos cumplidos

Ha sido un descubrimiento trabajar con Christopher. Realmente el tiempo y los recursos que se invierten retornan con los objetivos cumplidos.

Success in Silicon Valley

Una experiencia muy positiva

Mi experiencia con Christopher como formador en English Business Presentations ha sido muy positiva. Su enfoque se basa en la practicidad y profesionalidad; consiguiendo con ello que mejores en la comunicación y saques más provecho ante situaciones de negociación en inglés con personas de otros países y culturas en nuestro día a día.
Su conocimiento sobre otras culturas ayuda a enfocar mejor estas situaciones, obteniendo pautas diferentes en función de si el interlocutor es de origen asiático, americano, europeo, etc.
Javier Pinero Rojo,

Christopher is a great professional in his field. I have known him since the moment I was looking for a talented business trainer who could help me improve my communication skills in English. He got the best recommendations and, with the time, he exceeded all my expectations. Christopher has a great talent to bring out the best abilities of his clients and his methodology is very effective and enjoyable. Moreover, Christopher has a charming personality and a very interesting multi-cultural background which reinforces his outstanding training abilities. I personally recommend Christopher as a great trainer and as a very good professional.

Su foco en desarrollar no sólo el inglés, si no la capacidad de comunicación, de transmitir aquello que estás contando es diferencial.

La experiencia de aprender inglés con The English Training Company es radicalmente diferente a las que había tenido previamente con muchos otros centros de formación en idiomas. Su foco en desarrollar no sólo el inglés, si no la capacidad de comunicación, de transmitir aquello que estás contando es diferencial.
Además, su enfoque personalizado, enfocado en las fortalezas y debilidades de cada alumno, hace que el resultado y el aprovechamiento de cada sesión sea el máximo.
Por todo ello, recomiendo a cualquier persona que pruebe The English Training Company y su método, es un acelerador para mejorar la capacidad de comunicación en inglés.
