Here is how I can take your business English to the next level, face to face...


Welcome to the Advanced English for Professionals Premium Course

Most of you will have had English lessons before, either at college or through language schools.


I used to teach in a language school myself, but after a while I began to notice that a lot of the students always came to me with the same problems, which were all related to the way the courses at the language schools were set up.


Do any of the problems below sound familiar to you?


I forget most of the vocabulary I learn


This is mainly because language schools do not teach the SKILLS NEEDED TO STUDY ENGLISH OUTSIDE OF THE CLASSROOM.

Giving homework is good, but this is just one exercise, it does not teach students to FORM A DAILY HABIT of making English part of your life outside of lessons.

The Advanced English for Professionals course will tell you EXACTLY how you can take your English to the next level through my '6 MINUTE SOLUTION' - In-depth training on how to make English part of your daily life with just 6 minutes study per day.

The grammar that we learn, I know HOW to use it, but I never use it in normal conversation


The problem with just doing exercises to practise grammar, is that you are thinking about the grammar point as you are doing the exercise, so it is easier than real life. It doesn't teach you WHEN you can use it in spontaneous conversation.

The only way you can PROPERLY TEST if you have understood a grammar point is through REAL CONVERSATION with a private teacher.  At Advanced English for Professionals,  I mostly test grammar through spontaneous conversation, using 2 techniques:

Pointing out at various points in a conversation where you could have used a certain grammar point.

STEERING THE CONVERSATION towards the use of certain grammar points WITHOUT THE STUDENT KNOWING.  Therefore improving a student's knowledge of a difficult grammar topic.

I still don't feel confident speaking English with native speakers

Something I have observed from many teachers, is that they do not know how to give constructive feedback on conversation.

Simply correcting mistakes doesn't always help students. Knowing how to correct, and also pointing out the things students are doing RIGHT, does 2 things:

1. It increases students' confidence.  Reassures them that they are using phrases as a native speaker would use them. It gives the student a clear idea of where they are at with their English

3. It stops students falling into the trap of something called the Dunning-Krueger effect. The illusion that the more you know, the less you know.  This is a big factor in students losing confidence with their speaking.

With the Advanced English for professionals course uses a specific system, which places emphasis on things that students are doing right as well as students' mistakes.

So how is the Advanced English for Professionals course different, and what is in it?

Before we look at special teaching methods I use, let's take a look at the unique course structure.  There are 2 parts to the course..

  • 1

    The Base

    The essential advanced business vocabulary, articles and points of discussion are covered in the base of the course

  • 2

    Tailored Exercises

    This is the part where we decide areas where YOU personally need to improve. We look to improve these areas based on your own interests, using advanced English for Professionals special techniques shown below.

Section 1: The Base

The base functions as the part of the course which gives you all of the essential advanced business material.  The vocabulary, articles and discussions in this section are designed to take the business side of your English to the next level.

At the beginning of the course, the base is usually the main focus.  However, as the course progresses and I get to know you better, the course will be mainly based around YOUR SPECIFIC GOALS AND NEEDS (see section 2), and the base will be fitted around YOU PERSONALLY.

Section 2: Tailored Exercises

This section is just as important as section 1.  This is where we both decide on issues that YOU want to focus on.

This is based on 3 things:


In the demonstration lesson, or sometimes in the first lesson I always do something called GOAL SETTING.  This is where we work out YOUR OWN SPECIFIC TARGETS for your business English development.

Maybe you would like to improve your presentation skills.

Maybe you want to be able to communicate face-to-face with colleagues with confidence by the end of the year.

Maybe you do a lot of writing in your job, so you want to learn how to write.

Whatever is is that you want to improve, we will focus on it.  In fact, this is actually more important than the base of the course, and the two parts will run alongside each other.

Each goal will be clearly defined, and throughout the course we will take time to review our progress at regular intervals.

2. Areas where you feel you need to improve

Also, at the beginning of the course, we will discuss areas of your English which you feel you need to improve.  Maybe there are certain areas where you don't have that confidence you need to progress.  For example..

Maybe you struggle with getting past tenses right.

Maybe your grammar in general is something you don't feel so confident with.

Maybe your listening is fine, but you feel your speaking needs to become more fluent.

Whatever your problems in English may be, we will work out a strategy to solve them using techniques which I'm going to talk about in a second.

3. Areas where I can see you need to improve

At various stages throughout the course, areas may appear which need to be worked on.  Again, this could be issues about grammar, fluency etc.

Just like with number 2, as the course progresses we will work out strategies to tackle these areas and boost our business English.

At Advanced English For Professionals, I use unique teaching methods to help you achieve your goals

Having read the sections of the course, some of you may be thinking, what about grammar?


Do not fear!  At the beginning of the course I run through all major grammar topics, to find where students are having problems, and it is these topics that we focus on alongside the base of the course.

For all other grammar topics, my method is to SWITCH BETWEEN DIFFERENT TOPICS throughout each lesson, rather than focus on just one.

In language school courses that you have taken before, you may have spent one lesson as a mix of conversation vocabulary and grammar, and there would have been a specific grammar topic for each lesson.


For example, with just one normal sentence you may need to use a conditional, a relative clause and a difficult verb pattern!

What students need at advanced level, is to know exactly when to use a certain grammar point in SPONTANEOUS CONVERSATION, not in a textbook exercise.

During a discussion, there may be a grammar point which the student is not using correctly, or is using at the wrong time.  From here we will quickly do an exercise of only 2 or 3 questions, just to refresh rules, and then continue with the discussion. I will then try and steer the conversation towards helping the student use the grammar point spontaneously, WITHOUT THE STUDENT KNOWING.

Depending on issues in a conversation we may switch grammar topics 2 or 3 times to test a student's flexibility and ability to think on the spot.

This also allows us to refresh grammar topics again and again, as opposed to the language school method of looking at a topic once and never revisiting it again.

Here are some other teaching methods unique to the Advanced English for Professionals premium course..

  • 1

    Receive In-depth training on how to study outside of English lessons - Introducing my '6-Minute Solution'

    One of the main reasons students fail to progress during their language school courses is that they are not taught how to properly study outside of lessons.
    Language school courses may give homework, but they do not teach students the habits they can form to be in contact with English EVERY SINGLE DAY. If you don't live in an English speaking country, then forming habits which you can follow every day is ESSENTIAL if you want to progress. At Advanced English for Professionals I teach my students psychological tricks they can use to remain in contact with English consistently outside of lessons.
    I teach all of my students something i call 'The 6-Minute Solution', which is the idea that you only need 6 minutes of study each day to see your English improve dramatically.

    Learn to speak fluently under real pressure with spontaneous mini-presentations

    This is one excellent method for improving fluency, which I always use with my students. I give them a topic on the spot - it has to be a topic which they know very little about - and they have to tell me everything they know about that topic as fast as possible. I then give the student feedback on fluency, mistakes and things they did well. This process has absolutely amazing results - Once they are used to this kind of pressure, the idea of talking about something that they DO know a lot about becomes easier and easier.

    Receive feedback on the strengths in your conversation, as well as your weaknesses

    In order for students to recognise exactly where they stand in terms of their conversation fluency, it is essential that teachers give students feedback on grammar points or vocabulary that they used well. This is absolutely essential for students' confidence, and an area that many teachers tend to neglect.

    Conditionals a really important grammar topic, and they are also the topic which is hardest to get right. With the premium course you will learn my special method for remembering the forms of conditionals, and you will never forget them with my 2-minute conditionals drills EVERY LESSON!

What do my students say about the course?

When I started lessons 3 years ago I set David a challenge.  I wanted him to make my lessons dependent on my skills and how my skills will grow.  There are 2 types of teachers, one is learning step-by-step from textbooks, but David is different.  He adapts his style to my needs, because I wanted to do it a different way.  It is the basis of our lessons.  I feel more confident with my English in present days, which is very important because I travel more often than not to English speaking countries.

Jakub Jedlicka Managing Director, Casablanca Inc.

I have had lessons with David for 2.5 years.  I like the style of lessons, especially the articles he comes with.  Every time the latest and interesting stories with useful phrases and vocabulary.  We are used to discussing different topics for the first half of our lessons, with focusing on mistakes David tries to find in my talking.  David is able to describe English basic rules as well as harder grammar in such a different way to my experience from school.  I have learned a lot of business phrases I am able to use at my work.  I am also not afraid of speaking without thinking about grammar before.  Finally, I have thrown away bad habits I learned in our educational system.

Marcela Bernatova Project Manager, Sentient s.r.o

David’s lessons provide everything I need for my personal improvement.  We are not rigidly linked to one specific textbook or topic, and that’s great for me. I enjoy lessons, David is the best teacher I ever had (not only because of his unique explanation of conditionals).  If I had not visited lessons, I would not be comfortable to listen to the BBC or read something original, it feels easier now.
