International Skills


  • Learn how to write culturally sensitive emails like a native speaker.

  • Feel confident and connect when speaking English over the phone.

  • Present at an international level and make a lasting impression.


For those of you who need to communicate in English on a daily basis and communicate with international customers/clients by email, phone or find themselves present regularly. Based on over 22 years of teaching experience and extensive travelling all over the world, I have combined this knowledge into 3 international training options for you to get to the nitty-gritty of these subjects.

After these courses you'll find it a lot easier to come up with the right words, you'll know that you are getting it right tone-wise, and you will see the communication improve: fewer mistakes and positive responses due to your cultural awareness.

All three options are taught in-company.

  • Group package: pick two for a one-day workshop or two half days.
                              Included are: business vocabulary related to the topic, grammar isssues that need to be avoided, entry test and a one-month follow up based on weakest link. 

1. Email:
In four hours you will know how to start, finish and write English emails to different parts of the world in the right tone. With many example sentences and synonyms you are able to construct your own emails. A B2 level grammar understanding is preferred so as to compose your own sentences.

2. Telephone:
Speaking on the phone might feel dawnting to some people and having to come up with the right words a bit of a challenge at times. In this block you will learn how to level with the person on the other end of the line and create such an understanding that you will leave a lasting impression. Pronunciation is paid attention to as is spelling names and formality across cultures.

3. Presentations:
In this block you will come to understand what gives your audience the right feel and and what will make them regard you as a professional. Small techniques in hands, legs, movement, use of powerpoint and use of voice are the basics of these 4 hours. You will get to practise all the techniques and will know what language to use. To top it off, you will be made aware of how to present in the presence of different cultures, so as to make sure you are leaving a lasting impression.

I noticed that my English level had remained the same in recent years, and due to more international work it was time to invest in my English skills. Right at that moment, I met Elske from E-for-Excellence. It was such a pleasure working with her. As a gifted language coach she was always looking for my specific points to improve. Her interactive teaching ánd online courses bettered my fluency, my writing, my listening and my confidence. I loved the timetable flexibility, even on weekends, and, most of all, her dedication and patience.

I wholeheartedly recommend E-for-Excellence when you would like to advance yourself in the international market.

As a Procurement Manager in a large international corporation, I owe a large portion of my early career successes to my proficient level of Cambridge English which I apply daily during supplier negotiations or for the sake of internal stakeholder management. It enables me to communicate effectively and with confidence at all hierarchical levels. 
These successes root in Elske's Cambrige English classes which she lectured during my studies in International Logistics Management. Her classes were fun and challenging at the same time and she never missed an opportunity to put what she taught into a wider business context. It was Elske who relentlessly pushed me to higher levels and out of my comfort zone that was called "school English". At the end of her course I easily passed the Cambridge English exam and obtained my Certificate which would become a door opener. Ever since, my journey has taken me to a Master's degree at a renowned University in the UK and international secondments in three different countries for my employer. 
I can highly recommend being trained by Elske and wish her all the best for the future!

The one-on-one pronunciation training given by Elske was very interactive, which made it a great learning experience! It really helped me to communicate my message clearer in both business related and private conversations.

I am still taking advantage of your excellent English classes! You conveyed your passion for this language really well! The confidence and access to a large vocabulary in business English provide the edge in business reviews and negotiations time and again.

The training to improve my English language skills - given by Elske van der Wal - belongs to one of my most effective learning experience in recent years. Elske is a teacher at heart, very competent and aware that teaching is a social activity.
