Our Areas of Expertise

Have you ever picked up the phone and been lost for words? Communication over the telephone is an extremely important skill. Let us help you master every possible phone situation you could possibly face with confidence and efficiency.

Every day we send and receive dozens of business emails. Striking the right tone can help create good business contacts, avoid misunderstandings and increase your efficiency and productivity in the workplace.

For most of us it is already a daunting enough task to speak in front of a group of people. If you have to do this in another language that isn’t your own, the challenge becomes even greater! We help ease your nerves by giving you essential presentation vocabulary and professional phrases, helpful tips at conquering your nerves and expressing yourself. In next to no time you will be able to speak in front of small or large groups and bring across your message in a clear and confident manner!

Business is going increasingly global and with it, so are meetings. We will give you the important vocabulary, phrases and tips that you need in order to effectively participate in international meetings, as well as lead them with conviction

Doing business across countries can present a number of pitfalls which the unwary business person might fall into. Find out how to bridge these gaps, utilise knowledge of how business is conducted across different cultures to turn a ‘no’ or ‘maybe’ into a ‘yes’ and build strong business partnerships.

As Oscar Wilde once said, you only have one chance to make a first impression! Let’s get it right! Master the art of small talk, diffuse difficult situations with and polite diplomatic language, communicate exactly what you want to say and gain the upper-hand in business negotiations.

SELECTION OF CLIENTS

Wir haben die London School of Business English im Juni 2014 kennen gelernt, als wir einen Partner für unseren innerbetrieblichen Englischunterricht gesucht haben. Unsere, zwischenzeitlich wöchentlich etablierten Kurse verschiedenster Sprachniveaus, zeichnen sich durch Professionalität, Beständigkeit, Flexibilität und überdurchschnittliches Engagement seitens der London School aus. Gerne bestätigen wir, dass unser Trainer es hervorragend versteht, unsere Mitarbeiterinnen und Mitarbeiter am jeweiligen Kenntnisstand abzuholen und zu motivieren. Er vermag es, mit einer idealen Mischung aus Ernsthaftigkeit und Spaß die jeweiligen Englischkenntnisse unserer Kolleginnen und Kollegen kontinuierlich zu verbessern. Wir freuen uns auf eine weiterhin erfolgreiche Zusammenarbeit mit der London School of Business English, Munich.

Als Europaabgeordneter bin ich auf präzise und idiomatische Übersetzungen angewiesen. Chris Lines schafft genau das: Seine Übersetzungen geben nicht nur den Sinn, sondern auch den Klang des Ursprungstextes wieder. Außerdem schätze ich seine Zuverlässigkeit, Detailtreue und Schnelligkeit.

Ich habe in der Schule leider nie verständlich die englische Grammatik gelernt, dank Chris und der London School verstehe ich endlich warum und wann man welche Zeit anwendet und erkenne meine bisherigen Fehler. Und das hoch unterhaltsam mit unglaublich viel Spaß! Die wöchentlichen 1,5 Stunden unseres Gruppentrainings vergehen wie im Flug und man lernt dabei wie von selbst die Tücken der englischen Sprache!
