After completing this course, I feel much more able to use interpreters effectively and get better value from the interpreter’s presence.

It was my teaching background which led me to set up English Unlocked. For years I taught English to people from all over the world. I noticed that although my students could understand me, they struggled to understand the receptionists, librarians and other staff. Very few of my colleagues knew how to modify their speech effectively for learners of English. I decided to share the tricks of my trade with other professions and developed our first course. We now have a number of courses which empower staff to overcome language barriers without learning a language.

Our rewriting service

Reading English can be tough! Why not reach more people by letting us rewrite your content? It is possible to reduce the complexity and ambiguity of the written word without compromising your core message if you hire a language specialist to look at it through the eyes of someone whose first language isn’t English.
