    About Me

    English language proofreading/copy editing and/or learning/assistance with a native speaker!Are you tired of not relevant translations, your ‘marketing message’ not hitting the audience? Are you tired of learning grammar? Are you tired of reading/learning material not relevant to your “real requirements”? Do you just wish to be able to communicate better or make a better presentation or hold a more productive meeting? Do you want to reach a ‘wider’ audience with your products/services? Do you want vocabulary over grammar?

    I am a linguist – native English, German as a second ‘mother tongue’, intermediate French and basic Hungarian. I love languages – why? Language is communication and communication is key to living our daily lives, be it work, social etc.

    I am a mature English native speaker born in Africa of English parents. Apparently by age 7, I spoke the main native language, English and other local dialects. I communicated and often, apparently, translated for my parents. In School and University, I followed this path. Languages brought me the opportunity to, work in, and travel to so many places that it has been my joy throughout my life.

    I grew up with a love of languages, dialects etc. At age 10, I was learning Latin and French, later German. I hate ‘linguistics’ – the root and grammar of a language necessary to pass exams and be told you are proficient or fluent. I have lived and worked in the UK, USA, Austria, Germany and Hungary – often living off ‘English Communication’. Is that enough? I say no and have immersed myself in trying to communicate on my own with locals. My studies helped with German but it was the 12+ years living in either Germany or Austria and ‘opening’ my mouth that brought me the fluency – not the text books!

    I am a mature ‘English Gentleman’, currently living in Hungary. I have 35+ years of business/finance experience from my career in Banking, where communication was the key to success. I am internationally well travelled where your best experiences/successes are gained through ‘communication’. I have also served on various Supervisory Boards in Germany, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria where communication and understanding were paramount. Through this experience I certainly believe that I can put any of your ‘english communications’ into the relevant tone and language.
    My own experience of learning languages has involved both formal and informal learning. My Hungarian has improved rapidly in the last 8 years, mainly because I have a young daughter who is bilingual (English/Hungarian).

    I offer programmes of ‘communication/conversation’ and/or ‘teaching’ to any individual/company that is looking to move their language skills beyond learning ‘where the nearest train station is’ and being able to ask that in a grammatically correct manner. Do you wish to ‘communicate’? – if so I offer ‘tailor made’ programmes of conversation and communication based on a 30 minute ‘free’ conversation to understand your requirements/speciality where improvement in English speaking is sought.

    I live in Budaors, so this locale and Budapest do not create ‘logistical issues’ in terms of teaching/conversation events. Beyond these boundaries, modern technology/communication applications make programmes easy via a range of social media.

    Beside one-to-one or group programmes in conversation or communication, I also offer assistance in the preparation of the following issues,
    • Blogs in English
    • Presentations and presentation skills coaching
    • Board Papers
    • Formal Correspondence
    • Marketing Communications
    • Websites
    • Public information – particularly a company’s annual report
    • Investor Information
    • Email/social media communication
    • CVs
    • Motivation Letters
    • EU Submissions for finance/funding
    Internal Corporate Communication

    During the past few years I have had a wide variety of ‘students’ varying in age. With this has come an incredibly wide range of subjects to research, prepare for sessions and then discuss with the students. I have had the pleasure of working with ‘students’ from age 8 to 55 and have covered CVs; motivation letters; interview preparation for differing jobs being sought; purchasing management; sales management; coaching a top Hungarian doctor in the preparation of an international presentation on a complex procedure in laparoscopic surgery; data protection; conspiracy theories; Swiss banks and Nazi gold; fairy tales; South Korean pop music; fashion through the ages; murder mysteries; green innovation; COVID19 and its impacts; eight original websites translated to English were ‘reworked’; two submissions to Brussels (translated to English) for EU funds were copy edited ; an original Russian language ‘brochure’ translated to English for a Bitcoin product was also copy edited and many more.

    During this period, I have also used Netflix, YouTube; Podcasts and other material to encourage active participation in session discussion. I have personally learned a lot more than I knew about many topics which has also been very exciting. We have watched David Attenborough programmes; other nature series; Forensic Files; documentary films on social media etc.

    Obviously COVID19 also had its impact and during lockdown periods I moved to Zoom sessions or other social media, with one corporate client we had ‘hybrid’ sessions where group members connected via Zoom or Facebook to group sessions being held at the office while they were on holiday.

    Education

    University of Warwick - BA German studies. 4 year course based on German Literature, History, Sociology and Politics. Involved a one year stay as either a student or assistant teacher in a German speaking country - I chose Austria.

    Experience / Qualifications

    35 year career in the Banking/Finance Industry, during which I had two expatriate assignments of 5+ years - one in Frankfurt and one in Munich

    Jack
    Learn English for all levels of experience from 'Hello' to 'Goodbye' and everything in-between
    Hello, my name is Jack, a native English speaker originally from Manchester, England. I have experience teaching English as a second language both online to students in China.And in schools in Italy. I have a diploma in International Business Management from Northumbria University, and studied abroad in Sweden and Portugal and therefore know how important and daunting learning a language can be. I specialise in teaching English as a second language. My aim is to be the lessons fun and engaging. Depending on what you want to learn we can focus on grammar, sentence structure, building vocabulary of a particular topic or start at the basics learning phonics. If you would like support and tutoring on homework or topics you are studying in school I can support students with this and help them achieve in school. I can also teach Business English and help you prepare for a presentation or interview or help with your studies. My class would be perfect for either adults or children wanting to improve their oral and written English skills. Each class will be personalised to your needs and abilities with the first class used to evaluate your level and how we can best use further classes to improve your abilities and see results.

    Mark
    Professor of National Education, author of school textbook, 25 years of experience.
    ***** Availability update made on 09/01/2020. Valid until further notice ***** I offer you my services in order to make you truly effective orally / in writing in English. If you have to use English in the course of your professional activity and you don't get comfortable with it ... If you are tired of being spotted immediately as French ... If you don't know still not when to use the present perfect / preterite .... I'm here to help you and make you progress. * Linguist by training and author of school textbook in this capacity. Note that I am not this young student who had a good mark in the Baccalaureate or this other who is supposedly bilingual. I have been teaching as a teacher in the National Education since 1995 and I can tell you that teaching cannot be improvised. It is not an activity that we do "like that". I offer you my expertise and my experience. By the way, to have 10/20 in the Baccalaureate, it is enough to have the A2 level (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd year) so I let you imagine the desperation of future engineers who must obtain at least 750 in the TOEIC! (the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course is prepared according to your needs. Feedback is always given. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, connections ... Oral grammar. * Adaptation to all levels: from college to post-baccalaureate through high school. => Post-bac: preparation for TOEIC, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First-Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Orals and writings from grandes écoles such as ENA => Orals and writings from business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...) Please do not hesitate to contact me for further details.

    Elise
    German tutoring by graduate university
    University graduate in German language and literature (Master of Arts in German with specialization in Medieval Languages and Literature) with a solid experience gives private German lessons for all levels. Courses adapted according to the needs of the student. They aim to consolidate concepts, fill in gaps, prepare for exams (maturity, compulsory school leaving certificates, entrance exams to gyms, university, Goethe Zertifikat up to C1) and / or learn about language. For school supports: It is above all a work on the long term. Therefore, any exercise is explained in detail, which can make its execution slower: the quality is priority to the quantity in order to obtain an optimal result in the long term. Students bring their own course material (notebooks, books, audio CDs, dictionaries, assessments, etc.). It is important to note that my presence and explanations alone are insufficient to obtain satisfactory results. That's why I take the time to "learn to learn" effectively. For conversation classes: Topics are based on interests and / or specific needs for exam preparation. I give special importance to pronunciation, fluency and vocabulary. I usually correct at the end of a conversation exercise with detailed feedback, this to avoid blocking and work on fluidity. Depending on the level of the students and / or their expectations (preparation exams / assessments / desire for improvement for example), I work on the choice of appropriate words, grammatical accuracy, the ability to formulate more or less complex sentences. For exam preparations: The courses offer to acquire solid tools to learn how to write, to comment on literary texts and a methodology to work on the oral comprehension. The student will have to bring his own booklet of exam preparations available in all bookstores. For the Gothe Institute examinations, the Cornlesen exam books are particularly suitable. The other alternative would be to download AND PRINT before the beginning of the course an examination copy of GOETHE INSTITUT available on the site of the institute itself. For the oral comprehension: work from visual audio views downloaded from the DEUTSCHE WELLE website, which offer various recordings adapted to all levels, with a very concrete approach. The student acquires long-term fluency not only in oral comprehension, but also enriches his basic vocabulary through exercises. I am also working on the oral tests of the Goethe Institute to familiarize with oral. For the work of the written expression: I begin by explaining in the first lesson some methodological tools to acquire writing skills. The student has the opportunity to start writing during the course or do a writing exercise on duty and give it to me to correct (send by email or at the beginning of the next lesson). The corrections are explained in detail. In addition, at the time of booking, the student can send me a draft copy before the lesson so that I can meet his needs even more quickly. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, especially for the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. In addition, each student can contact me at any time outside the course by email if necessary. Feel free to contact me for more information.

    English for beginners , learn to speak english with me via webcam
    English is a West Germanic language that was first spoken in early medieval England and is now a global lingua franca. Named after the Angles, one of the Germanic tribes that migrated to England, it ultimately derives its name from the Anglia (Angeln) peninsula in the Baltic Sea. It is closely related to the Frisian languages, but its vocabulary has been significantly influenced by other Germanic languages, particularly Norse (a North Germanic language), as well as by Latin and Romance languages, especially French. English is the third most widespread native language in the world, after Standard Chinese and Spanish. It is the most widely learned second language and is either the official language or one of the official languages in almost 60 sovereign states. There are more people who have learned it as a second language than there are native speakers. English is the most commonly spoken language in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland and New Zealand, and it is widely spoken in some areas of the Caribbean, Africa and South Asia. So as you can see we widely need to speak english in nowadays , it's necessary once you are abroad and don't speak the language of the country . Let's start together to learn english , step by step we'll achieve to highest result. I am experienced french teacher , but I also teach english for beginners , armenian , russian and dutch for beginners . I am waiting for you my lovely students
