MEET YOUR NEW ENGLISH COACH!


If you’ve been learning English for years, but still don’t feel confident during conversations, I completely understand! I’ve gone through that myself with German (I live in Austria), so I know how challenging learning a second language can be.


I’m Derek and I originally come from Ireland. My career as a professional English Coach started back in 2004, and since then I’ve been lucky to work with and help hundreds of great people and businesses to achieve their professional English goals.


In the last 5 years I’ve seen a big change: a lot of my learners find it hard to schedule lessons because of their busy calendars. That’s why I decided to start my YouTube channel to create short lessons that busy people can watch and learn from at any time. With my background and valuable experience teaching face-to-face, I’m now able to give something back.


Another thing that happened in the last few years is that more and more people wanted to learn with me. And the number one request is always “I want to be more confident when speaking English, I want to have conversations without constantly thinking about what I want to say or how to say it”. Unfortunately, I can only be in one place at one time. That’s why I created this course – to reach more people and give you the opportunity to work on your conversation skills.


With 17 years of experience as a Professional English Coach, I know exactly what people need to become more confident and have better conversations.


So take advantage of my experience, stop being frustrated with your English conversation skills, and start working on them today!

His lessons are very practical and useful in everyday life, both for informal conversations as well as the more formal ones at work. The course is really enjoyable and interesting for busy people. It’s worth the investment.”

 

Gustavo, Accountant, Brazil


"The course is well prepared and organized. I liked everything about it starting with delivery of content and how the teacher presented it. For example, the way the instructor was teaching various strategies during the videos especially with the dialogue was very clear. In addition to this, the audio files with the PDF study notes made me stay on track and the quizzes after each of the modules were great tools that helped me check my understanding.”

 

Asma, Teacher, United Arab Emirates
