We are a language institute specializing in Business English and Business Communication Training and have made nothing less than a small revolution in English learning our mission: Whether in-house with our corporate clients, in our My [SIC]... seminars for private clients or in our sponsored Business English programs - our input is always based on work-related and real-life communication. For our customers, this means, for example, that we do not work with schematically organized course books and that no static grammar gap texts are filled in or simple vocabulary exercises are carried out in our training courses.
Instead, we focus on active speaking and writing at all times, while grammar comes in through the back door. Our motto in this context is: Feedback is the New Input - This means that each of our training sessions ends with a feedback session that gives you important input on vocabulary and grammar topics. This input is exactly related to the conversations and tasks that were previously the topic of the training session. This way you only learn what is really relevant for you.
In our corporate courses, we provide you and your company's employees with immediate and effective support in dealing with upcoming English-speaking tasks. Whether it is the preparation of presentations, telephone conferences, live meetings, negotiations or the writing of reports or simple e-mails - only your tasks and topics determine our curriculum!
We offer our private customers workshops and seminars on all business English topics as well as various conversation courses and seminars on grammar and vocabulary topics. You don't book a long-term course that you pay for in advance, but plan your training conveniently on a monthly or weekly basis. You only pay for the seminars you actually attend!
My points and stars are already conspicuously good.
And I very rarely give ratings, nor do I make recommendations lightly.
But in this case, I'm very happy to do so, and with an absolutely clear conscience.
In any case, I felt very well taken care of.
And I have achieved my ideas and goals that I had with an English course.
I found the individual and timely adaptations to the teaching material just as great as the preparation and follow-up of the lessons.
And with the help of the podcasts, you always have the opportunity to go through the material again.
My lecturers were Francesco Cassano and Mark Peirson. I would like to thank them again.
Apart from everything else, I particularly liked the very friendly atmosphere.
And I wish the SIC team only the best for the future.
If you want to improve your English in the long term, [SIC] is the right place for you!
This is ensured by the competent and committed language teachers, the practical and individually designed content of the courses, as well as the innovative teaching methods.
I booked the course "Big in Business" and was enthusiastic from the first day. The language teachers know how to structure the content and make it interesting. Instead of dry textbooks, there are daily updated articles, pictures or internet videos. This is made possible by the state-of-the-art technical equipment in every single room. There are no longer blackboards here, but monitors and tablets. All notes are also recorded in digital form and sent after each appointment. In addition, a podcast is recorded that once again summarizes the course content. Another big plus is the ability to co-determine and customize the content of the course. I am very grateful to Murray Miller and Mark Peirson for their willingness to dive into the world of mechanical engineering with me and for giving me the knowledge and confidence to present even complex issues in a short and comprehensible way. Of course, I would also like to thank Francesco Cassano for his weeks of support and the successful improvement of my application documents. In the end, everyone at [SIC] helped me pass my final TOEIC test with the highest score of C1. If I ever need English training again, [SIC] is the first choice and should be for everyone else as well. I can only absolutely recommend them.
I really enjoyed learning with such competent, patient and dedicated teachers.
teachers. After more than 35 years without English experience, I have achieved a great foundation.
Meanwhile I understand English broadcasts, texts and conversations very well The school is very well
equipped with modern equipment ,bright friendly rooms, you feel comfortable. . It is individually
to each individual. Keep it up .
It has brought me personally very much. Despite a break of about 30 years in terms of foreign language and especially vocabulary, it is now relatively easy for me to understand texts well by listening and reading. Suddenly I can also understand Jürgen Klopp at his press conferences without subtitles.
I'm already looking forward to the first "walking tests" in Smaltalk at the next trade fair.
Best just change NOTHING!!! Then I think that you will soon be "The fixed size" in the school world of Cologne.
I thank you for the great teaching in the last 8 weeks.
I was very satisfied with the fact that Mr. Cassano took my level into account and helped me to catch up in the shortest possible time. Another help were his podcasts, these are unique, so you could review the material from the previous day. I can only recommend SIC personally.
Super committed, competent and likeable
I have known Mr. Francesco Cassano for some time. He is a really dedicated man who seems to have made his passion his profession. A man with charisma and above all a lot of heart for people who would like to learn English and yet find it difficult. And this at the highest level of the English language. So far I am still able to judge English.
First of all: my English has been largely unused since my school days. Nevertheless, I need it at work. My passive vocabulary is still halfway bearable, because I read and still read English books in between. But my active vocabulary and grammar are ... not good (to put it very carefully).
Mr. Cassano speaks to me only in English. Never ... I must emphasize this ... really never does he pressure me to answer in English. He also accepts German answers. But he takes each of my English attempts so calmly and kindly that I am happy to continue talking to him in English. He continues to converse with me normally - but also answers each of my questions in a calm and friendly manner. He has an extremely pleasant voice and that melodious Oxford accent.
His lessons are specifically geared to our work of an Internet advertising agency. He also rehashes each 1.5hr session per week in a separate podcast of about 15min.
He is one of the few people I can immediately imagine as a sympathetic person. Friendly, humorous and at the same time so clear in his teaching content: a real bull's eye for anyone who wants to get ahead!
The podcasts provided, individually linked to the subject matter, as well as the vocabulary of the previous lesson, are very helpful and easy to listen to and learn at a relaxed melodic pace. Current needs and topics were always addressed, while always keeping the learning objectives in mind.
Learning a language with someone who enjoys teaching and is happy about every development: that is a spark that motivates more than anything else.
And podcasts can reinforce this.
Such clear pronouncements in a very pleasant voice are then also pleasant to listen to ... and it has a lasting effect. Great performance that is offered here!
A very friendly and funny teacher, who not only teaches English excellently, but also promotes general education. The individual lessons are very well prepared and adapted exactly to the topic relevant at the time. In addition, the times for lessons are very flexible and can be adapted individually.
