Specialist Language was established in Paris in 2008. The company ran English language training at some of the great business educational institutions such as INSEE and ENASS, as well as teaching executives in many of the major firms in La Defense. Later we concentrated on coaching (notably at Mazars and Generali) and creating bespoke workshops on specific business subjects for Marsh and other financial sector heavyweights. Now present in Berlin, we are training at some of the capital’s largest firms, but also planning a suite of full-day workshops at our premises in Wedding. Founder Sean Roe remembers: "The seed for Specialist Language was sown when I was learning French in-company before moving to Paris on secondment from a large reinsurance firm. It was seemingly impossible to find language trainers who knew the jargon of insurance, banking, investment or economics. People with experience of advanced business functions such as project management, audits or budgeting were also thin on the ground. Years later, after also learning German in-company, I decided to change career path and to use my first-hand experience to teach advanced business English."
Your presentation is always great. The level of English words and expression is suitable to me (I think my level is inter-mediate).
I personally believe that the quality of the English language training given by Sean and Monika is really superb. Both instructors are very knowledgeable about the English language and its usage. They have also chosen very informative and entertaining reading materials to teach the students and the materials cause the students to be more attentive to the discussion. Most of the vocabularies and grammatical structures used in the teaching sessions are suited for the intermediate level students who want to advance themselves in business English utilization. I am also impressed with the way that Sean and Monika courteously present themselves to the students. For me, they both appear to be highly educated and sophisticated. Their personal appearances and manners seemed to be suitable for their roles as an instructor. They have created the classiest English teaching session I have ever experienced in my life and I believe that I could not easily find any English teaching instruction that could match with this one in terms of English language learning experience.
As a tech executive who has lived and worked in an English speaking environment since 2008, I had a first world problem finding a proper program to further polish my English skills till I met Sean. What impressed me is not only the originality of his course material, but also how spot on each unit was designed to bridge the gap between an advanced ESL speaker and a native speaker. Sean’s extensive knowledge across business, sports and cultural topics also makes his sessions such a joy to be a part of. I’d recommend Sean to any advanced learner without reservation.
Your zoom sessions are very helpful. I especially need to read various articles so that I can improve my reading comprehension skills. So, I would like to attend the Wed. zoom session every time.
I really recommend this training and I have learned a lot of vocabulary. It was an amazing experience
clear and useful explanation
varieties of materials
the more I take lessons the more I feel I get familiar with English articles Thank you
The course led by well experience teacher with latest interesting news articles. For me, it there is difficult to catch different nuance in some words which may lead totally wrong interpretation or fail to enjoy the hidden messages. But I was happy to know that the course focus on those trick words in different usages in various situations. It is online lesson so easily access at home or anywhere. And love these attendees are interactive and share what they learn during the class. I definitely recommend it=)
I liked very much this very interesting and useful English training about wine styles and it was a great opportunity for me to learn the English terminologies …The teacher has a very charismatic way to present difficult and rare expressions. It has been always a great pleasure to participate in all his seminars.
Es läuft sehr gut. Sean macht das wirklich gut.
Wir sind sehr zufrieden mit Sean Roe. Zum Teil werden wir mit ihm ein Training zur Vorbereitung auf ein Cambridge Certificate (First Certificate) absolvieren. Weitere Themen, die wir für unseren Arbeitsbereich benötigen,haben wir mit ihm besprochen. Wir freuen uns sehr auf die kommenden Unterrichtsstunden.
Ich fühle mich sehr wohl in dem Kurs und es macht Spaß daran teilzunehmen. Das Level passt und die bisher verwendeten Unterrichtsmaterialien sind gut und dem Kursniveau entsprechend.
Es fanden bisher zwei Termine statt. Mir persönlich gefällt das Sprachtraining sehr gut. Herr Roe schafft eine sehr gute Atmosphäre und das geplante vorgehen sagt mir zu.
Bisher bin ich ganz zufrieden mit dem Training. Sean lässt sich gut auf uns ein und ist nicht starr mit seinem Programm. Durchaus flexibel, was aus meiner Sicht auch erwünscht ist.
Wir hatten bisher zwei Sessions, die waren sehr gut. Ungezwungen und mit klaren Fokus auf Praxis. Ich bin derzeit auf Dienstreise und kann schön üben 🙂
Ja, ich bin sehr zufrieden mit meinem Lehrer. Das passt prima. Sean gibt sich mit mir Anfänger sehr viel Mühe … Danke schön
Alles bestens ! Bisher hatten wir 2 Einheiten. Wirklich sehr gut und intensiv.
Ich bin sehr zufrieden und begeistert über den Unterricht mit Sean Roe.
Besonders positiv finde ich wie er im Gespräch bzw Unterricht auf meine Englisch Defizite gezielt eingeht wodurch der Unterricht immer Interessant und Lehrreich ist. Das Lernpensum ist nicht zu viel und nicht zu wenig so dass ich am Folgetermin dort weiterlernen kann wo wir Aufgehört haben.
Wir hatten bis jetzt genau zwei Einheiten. Ich fand Sean aber von der erste Stunde an super!
Monica is a very highly skilled engineer and has excellent communication skills…
The strength is their industry expertise and store of material which concentrates on the vocabulary and structures that I need for work. The professional training was especially useful to help me successfully relocate to London.
