  • Manuel’s requirements: To improve English for his work, which has international clients

    Manuel works for a company near Stuttgart in Germany, which makes coatings for the automotive and furniture industry.

    Manuel’s company requires employees to have good English language skills, due to the fact that the company’s sales radius is growing. North America is also one of their core markets, so the ability to speak and understand a high level of English is fundamental.


    “My work requires more and more English language skills, and it is essential to speak English to some extent. The most important thing in my opinion is building up a reasonably decent vocabulary. Grammar is important, but to understand and to answer in a free way in English is the way to connect with people.”

    Why class-e?

    class-e’s English language course was offered to Manuel by his employer. About 10 years prior, he’d had the opportunity to take a group English course with another provider, however, he much prefers the intensity of the 1:1 lessons and the ability to progress more quickly.

    Manuel enjoys the mix of having a structured approach to learning, coupled with the more natural conversational practice with a native English speaker.

    “I particularly like the course because it is a one-to-one course and my teacher understood it well that I would benefit from discussing different topics. We found a very good mix of private and business topics.”

    Manuel’s learning programme

    Manuel has now been signed up to class-e’s online English course since February 2019. Like all our clients, he was assigned a dedicated language trainer, Kay, in order to offer consistency, maximise development and offer some level of familiarity when speaking English.

    Through his company, Manuel was able to book one-hour sessions on a weekly basis to improve his knowledge.

    Manuel’s experience with class-e

    Since joining class-e, Manuel now feels much more confident when speaking English and believes it is much easier to speak freely and organically about different topics. This has helped him greatly in both a professional capacity as well as a personal one.

    “I would definitely recommend class-e and would also like to say many thanks to my teacher Kay. With great patience and a lot of humour, she helps me to learn the language and also a little bit of the culture in Wales.”
