O'Connell Advanced Training Solutions - Your Partner in Professional English Training
Together we'll cover the essential language you need to confidently and accurately speak, listen, read and write Technical English.
This is a beginners course, so we start with refreshing the basics: alphabet and numbers, introductions and greetings. But we quickly delve into work-specific language and situations via audio, video and text lectures.
Each lecture is supported by downloadable activities and exercises which you will need to complete. The course contains a wealth of information and resource sheets, and will be your go-to guide for your Technical English needs.
By the end of this course you will be confident and competent in Technical English communication with your business partners, and will communicate at a CEF A2 level.
This lecture gives you an introduction to your trainers, Jacqueline Seidel and Anja Pleul, as well as the goals for this course.
You need to be able to communicate effectively in technical English - with colleagues and counterparts from abroad, suppliers and more.
This course has been designed specifically for you. Every lecture, every resource, every activity has been designed to build on your existing knowledge, to challenge you, to stretch your English knowledge so by the end you will be an effective communicator!

Hello, my name is Anja Pleul.
I am an adult educator, a linguist and a certified translator for English and German. I have worked as an English and German language trainer for over 15 years now.
And I'm still enjoying it!
I have my own translation and training business in Chemnitz in Saxony - a pretty big industrial town in the eastern part of Germany.
Over the years I have taught a wide variety of programmes ranging from general, to business to specialist English and German courses. And I have taught those to individual students as well as groups of different sizes.
I would like to invite you now to learn with me and benefit from my experience. Together, we will
- build your vocabulary,
- improve you listening skills,
- revise essential grammar in a practice-related way, and
- turn your theoretical knowledge into useful speaking skills.
So, let's get down to business then, shall we?
