English language trip



Are you a professional in International Business or Education and you feel your English could do with a boost? Because you feel uncomfortable with your own performance or you want to take that next career step? But you do not want to spend months on it or sit down for 10 hours a day? You like to learn in a way that excites, stimulates, and is highly efficient?

Join the E-for-Excellence language trip in V.I.P. style! An exclusive 6-day trip through the south, central or (very) north of the United Kingdom
that will bring out your hidden English. When talking and hearing English all day, you are bound to start even dreaming in the language.


Having organised company visits in Scotland, Ireland, England, Dubai, South Africa, Malaysia, America and Canada for Logistic students before,
I came to understand the added value of the local interaction and change of scenery as the biggest contributors to the success of these trips.
The fun and new cultural experiences were the key ingredients for the memorable week.

Whilst language learning can be tedious and time consuming, offering it in this active form guarantees a quick learning curve and new perspectives,
which makes better English not the only thing you take home.


How you will benefit from this V.I.P. TRIP:

  • Speak, hear, read and write only English the entire time
  • Receive constant attention to and correction of your English
  • Interact with native speakers a lot
  • Learn about English culture and literature - great for social talk topics

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 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.

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 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.
