English Language Course
If you want to increase your personal effectiveness when using English, come to Language Institute Regina Coeli. A team of native speakers deliver just the right programme to prepare you for your English-speaking business activities. A combination of private lessons, multimedia exercises and other assignments will have you well on your way to skilfully using the finer points of the language.
Personal course of English
Many of our participants already speak English quite well, but notice that they are less effective and communicate less confidently than in their native language. That’s when it can be extremely helpful to practice scenarios and receive feedback from native speakers. That kind of practice, of course, goes hand-in-hand with Language Institute Regina Coeli’s personalised, intensive individual English language courses.
|An English language trainer will take you on a tour of Regina Coeli.|
The trainers employed by Language Institute Regina Coeli come from every corner of the English-speaking world, such as the United States, England, Scotland, Ireland, South Africa and Australia. When we compose the team of your course of English, we not only bear in mind your profession, we try to provide insight into the many cultures found in the native English-speaking world.
The English language is essential if you wish to do business internationally or work in an international team. You could find yourself working alongside native speakers, such as Britons and Americans, where your knowledge of the communication differences on the two sides of the Atlantic could be essential to your professional effectiveness. Are you aware of the differences in American and British English which transcend simple spelling rules or pronunciation?
Speaking English with other non-native speakers
You might equally come into contact with colleagues, suppliers or clients who speak English as a foreign language, just as you do. This comes with its own share of challenges. Does your message come across the way you intend it to? Are you able to ask questions to clarify things when you cannot fully understand what someone else is trying to say? If you have frequent contact with other non-native speakers, we can teach you during your English speaking course how to be more effective in your communication.
Develop your own communication style
You will need to develop your own communication style in English, which can differ from your preferred style in your native language. Your team of trainers will assist you in this process. Are you curious about how we can help and all the additional details? Arrange a personal intake appointment to discuss the possibilities. After the appointment, you will receive a non-binding proposal for your own tailor-made training programme for your English language course.

What a week and what a difference it made! That is the best description of my experience at Language Institute Regina Coeli: the intensive nature of the training, the professional level of the trainers and the outstanding care and attention to service at the location assure that all the conditions needed to bring your language skills to the next level are met. Personally, it helped me to go from using ‘Global English’ to substantially good ‘English English.’ This was an important goal for me to accomplish prior to my move to London, and it was definitely achieved.
Peter MJ Rosseel, M.D., Anesthesiologist, Amphia Ziekenhuis Breda
Motivated teachers taxed my grey cells harder than would have been the case in a normal workweek at the hospital. Their well-thought-out approach with one-to-one teaching - dedicated towards detecting and improving weak spots – combined with multimedia sessions, interactive workshops, independent study and of course the conversations at dinner and during the coffee breaks, have all contributed significantly to the efficacy of the learning process.
However this week brought me much more than a substantial improvement of my English. The full day program did not prevent me from meeting many interesting people, teachers and students alike, with many differences in age, background and nationality but united in their determination to learn a language; as a matter of fact, the networking proved to be a very attractive spin off of this week. Lunch and dinner served by very friendly staff was star-worthy.
Though the program was very intensive and I felt physically tired when returning to the hotel, it was still wonderful to notice how such a structured and orderly approach still allowed for mental rest, which I would not readily encounter in my hectic workplace.
Thank you RC staff for this very inspiring week!

Learning and/or improving a language in a short time, in an extremely professional manner, in a harmonious environment with well-balanced days, with exceptional and pleasant trainers: that, for me, is Regina Coeli. That begins with an excellent intake, followed by a week which, through great effort, is actually relaxing and through which clear and measurable results are achieved.
Arnoud Passenier, Strategic Advisor, Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment
I arrived with the expectation that it would be extremely exhausting. Despite the intensive programme, I was actually energised. The organisation was perfect, the trainers enthusiastic and very comforting, and the fellow course members just as motivated to learn the language. I recommend it to everybody!
Kees Pulles, Team Manager Operations, Achmea
Regina Coeli has fantastic trainers and extremely good and varied lesson materials to assist you in making substantial progress in your language skills in one week.
Peter Lutteke, Head of Financial Administration, Parkeerservice.nl
I am more confident. At the beginning of the week I was a quiet boy. Four days later, my self-confidence has increased.
The English language course is delivered by a team of trainers from the English-speaking world. When you follow lessons at Language Institute Regina Coeli, your training will be with a number of them.
A few trainers share their thoughts on language training at Language Institute Regina Coeli:
"They say that once you pay people enough, the three things which motivate them are Autonomy (the freedom to self-direct), Mastery (the opportunity to improve skills and ability) and Purpose (the feeling that there is a higher goal which you are working towards). I can honestly say that we, as Regina Coeli Language Trainers, receive all of these motivators from our students, colleagues and Heads of Department, which makes Regina Coeli a unique environment to work in. The ‘energy buzz’ which flows through the building from students who want to ‘go the extra mile’ for their trainers and the trainers who, inspired by their students, want to ‘go the extra mile’ for their students, creates a very positive, inspirational atmosphere which ensures the optimal learning environment for both students and trainers. I love my ‘work’!"
Barbara Ninaber van Eyben – Dean
"What makes Regina Coeli so exceptional? Why do the course members feel so “taken care of” and so special? What makes course members come back to do another course? Why is it such a pleasure (and an honor) to work here?
After many years at Regina Coeli I can say what course members have told me, they feel so “well taken care of” because of the individual lessons, a programme that was developed especially for them, the manner in which the teachers explain things and give them the information specifically designed to meet their needs. They have often said “it is just everything, the teachers, the catering, the reception, the people who helped me plan the course, all of you are so professional and I really feel like I am learning and feel comfortable doing it.” A frequent comment is “I have learned so much about English but also a lot about the cultures of English speakers and why I should use the language differently than I do my own language.”The fact that course members meet fellow students from all over the world is seen, by them, as an absolute bonus. Many of them say “I am going to come back and do another course!”
As a teacher I feel honored to work here, to be able to help course members learn, to teach them something which they didn’t know and will be able to apply when they leave. Also, we learn as much from our students as they learn from us. The diversity of course members, nationalities, professions, ages, levels is a constant source of inspiration. I’ve been here for nearly 15 years and I still enjoy teaching every day!"
