Business English

Communication with non-German speaking stakeholders is central to the operation and success of many companies in Hamburg and beyond. At EBD, our goal is to ensure that effective communication in English does not stand in the way of the success of your business.

Our coaches are not only certified, but they also possess strong communication skills and lots of experience and are capable of implementing EBD`s teaching philosophy. Our English coaches also have a wide-range of knowledge in other disciplines including healthcare, economics, engineering and business.

We equip each teacher with teaching materials that are both interesting and relevant to your personal and professional developments. Catering to your specific interests makes it easier for you to participate in class discussions and ultimately to speak freely and fluently within a short period of time. Whatever your need is – whether it is to learn how to answer the phone, send an email, give a presentation, etc. – EBD is here to assist you.

We provide industry-specific and need-based English lessons to groups and individuals in the legal, medical, academic, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, sales, shipping, customer service and many other fields. Send us an email or give us a call to get started.

English for 5th Graders & Above 

Working with young learners is central to what we do. Our goal is to expand the learning environment beyond the classroom and introduce learners to a variety of subjects that are both relevant to their personal and academic lives. We strive to make our learning environments as social and creative as possible and to open young learners` eyes to the diverse world around them and encourage them to play active roles in shaping it, all while speaking English. Activities include reading and comprehension, grammar exercises, essay writing, storytelling and public speaking.

At the very heart of grasping any language is taking steps to express oneself in said language. None of us at English By Doing comes from English-speaking countries, yet we have embraced it as a mother tongue through practising self-expression in English from a very young age. We found art – whether it was storytelling, poetry, painting or monologues – to be an incredible tool for advancing our sense for English, as well as our self-confidence and personal development.

Have you ever played Werewolf in English? Or Monopoly?

Thinking in a different language changes the rules of any game, especially outdoor activities. With the approval of parents and guardians, we will take participants “out and about” in the city – whether to play a round of football, or to explore a part of town that we know very little of.

Compared to the rest of Europe, one of the main reasons why a lot of Germans learn English at a slower pace is that the films and series on television and cinema programmes are (mostly) dubbed into German. Unfortunately, a lot of the details of any film get lost in translation, no matter how well the dubbing is done.

Everyday English & English Conversation

Coming into contact with people who speak English is almost a daily experience. And whether it is a customer, a friend, a colleague or a host, it makes a world of difference if you can understand each other well.

At EBD, we have a team of freelance English coaches whose diverse backgrounds make them uniquely qualified to guide you as to how to interact with people from different places. They are here to help you succeed in speaking English freely and fluently with the ones that matter to you. We offer lessons on what to say when you meet someone for the first time, how to make a reservation of any kind or order food in a restaurant, how to ask for directions and much more. We provide both group and individual lessons. Please send us an email or give us a call if you have any question.

Essay, Letter and Resume Writing & Editing

Readers’ ability to understand what we write matters to us. However, this is often made difficult by grammatical error, sentence misplacement and redundancy. Since the mistakes we make are often unintentional, detecting them on our own can be difficult. Whatever your challenges, EBD can help you to overcome them. For more information, please send us an email or simply give us a call.

Cultural Competency Training (intercultural communication)

How do I interact with locals? What are some of the misconceptions that I ought to be aware of? How should I present myself in different environments? How do I make friends and attract business partners? What is expected of me legally and socially? How do I interact with colleagues from different socio-cultural backgrounds?

These are some of the many questions we struggle with whenever we are considering a move to a new location for a work or residential purpose. To help answer them, we offer you the opportunity to work intensively with some of the most qualified trainers available. In identifying which trainer is right for you, we prioritize direct local knowledge and experience, certification and strong communication and interpersonal skills.

We provide industry-specific and need-based training sessions to groups and individuals in the legal, medical, academic, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, sales, shipping, customer service and many other fields. Send us an email or give us a call to get started.

English Exams & Qualifications

Our teachers can prepare you for the Cambridge English Qualifications for school, general and higher education and business. The exam is focused on a level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and is therefore accepted all across Europe.
