Does this sound familiar?
“I’m not happy about my English.”
“I don’t have a lot of time to improve my English.”
“If my English was better, I’d feel more confident at work.”
“Am I using the right grammar form? I have no idea.”
“How can I sound more natural in English?”
“I let other people check my emails before I press ‘send’. I hate that!”
“I’m using the same words over and over again. But how do I learn and use new ones?”
“I don’t feel like me in English.”
I hear this all the time
(These quotes are all from my inbox, actually.)
- There are so many people out there who struggle with their English communication skills.
- They are not absolute beginners, but they are far, far away from where they want to be.
- They doubt, hesitate, question themselves….they feel small, less professional, or not as smart as they are in their own language.
I’m here to change that!
That’s why I designed a new online course to help with all of this…and more!
Ready to get to the next level?
Welcome to my English Elevator!
My English Elevator is a 4-week program that will take your English communication skills to the next level. It’s fun, interactive, intense, and very effective.
I designed it for people who are busy but still want to improve their English in a fresh and fabulous way.
What is the English Elevator program?

How does this sound? Are you ready for the elevator?
What level of English is needed for this program? Is it for absolute beginners?
The English Elevator program is not for absolute beginners. I will be explaining everything in English, and all of the materials will be in English without any other support language. However, in the live Q&A, you can always ask questions in Dutch, if needed. This program is designed for people who understand English, and have basic English skills. Anyone from advanced beginner level is welcome!
What will happen if I don’t join this program?
You might regret it for the rest of your life. You might not regret it for the rest of your life. It’s hard to say.
What will I learn during the course?
You will learn a LOT. Have a look at the live lesson list above (the 4 modules), check out the 15 workbooks listed above, and click here to find out more about the 9 video modules of my Business English Communication Course. This program also covers things like negotiating, giving an elevator pitch, sales and marketing language, and so much more.
How will I feel at the end of the program?
Most likely the same way most of my clients feel – sad that it’s come to an end, but full of motivation, confidence, and inspiration to communicate in English! You’ll be so much more aware of the why behind the what, you’ll be able to correct your own mistakes, and you’ll discover new word choices that you were not aware of before. You will also have me with you whenever needed, as I’ll be in the workbooks or the Business English communication course, waiting for you to learn again with me at any time!
How much does it cost?
The entire program is €1495,00 (ex VAT)
How many people can fit in the English Elevator?
10 lucky ducks. Willy Wonka designed this elevator so it can do things most elevators cannot do. You’ll see! (No burping required. And Google this if you have no idea what I’m talking about.)
Can I pay in terms?
I’m afraid this is not an option for this particular course.
What if the English Elevator gets stuck?
Don’t worry. It won’t. We have the best English Elevator technicians who are on duty 23/6. (We give them time off to rollerblade.) The only thing that might get stuck is your brain, because it’s learning so many awesome new things!
What if I can’t attend a lesson?
That’s no problem! The 4 masterclasses will be recorded and sent to you so that you can see everything again whenever you like! The workbooks are yours to keep, and you have lifetime access to my Business English Communication Course.
Take my money! How do I register?
I can’t take your money, but I am happy for you to give it to me. You can reserve your spot by clicking here.
When does it start?
Our first masterclass is June 4, and we start onboarding at the end of May. Our last masterclass session is June 25. You can keep the workbooks and continue to access my Business English Communication Course forever.
How can I prepare for the first lesson?
We will send you all the onboarding information at the end of May, and let you know then!
Will you be doing this again?
Great question! If there is enough interest, I might do this again later this year. However, nothing is planned yet. Grab your chance now, just in case!
You’re funny. Will you be making jokes during the course?
Is the Pope German?
Do you give refunds?
I’m afraid I don’t.
I still have a question – how can I reach you?
I’d love to hear it – please send a mail to Karin at email@example.com and she will pass it on to me! Thanks! However, I am already married, so if your question was a marriage proposal, I’m afraid I’ll have to say no at this particular point in time.
Is personal coaching part of this program?
Personal coaching is not part of the Elevator English program. You can ask me anything during the live Q&A at the end of every masterclass, however. I have reserved my personal coaching services for private coaching clients, corporate training programs, and members of my Great in 8 program.
