"It takes me so long to find the right words."
"I make a lot of grammar mistakes."
"I get nervous if I have to present in English."
"I would love to have more self-confidence!"
I started Common Link English Language Training in 2003 after working for years in sales and marketing in the US and the Netherlands. It became the perfect way for me to combine my business experience with my passion for language, helping non-native speakers improve their skills and feel great about using English at work.
On the teaching side, I've trained hundreds of Dutch business executives and have taught thousands of international business undergrads. On the consultancy side, I've written, edited, and translated text for a wide variety of organizations.
Always having lived in a bi-lingual home, and having lived in the Netherlands for over 20 years, I learned first hand the value of understanding other cultures and the importance of good communicaton skills.
I'm grateful for the chance to do work I love!
