Unsure Which Course to Choose?


If you want a creative week making artwork in English, choose Amplify.

But if you need to boost your presentation skills for artist talks, product presentations or an interview, choose Pure (unless you have 1 specific event in mind. In that case, choose Presentation Perfect).

If you need your English for less formal professional events, to live in a new country, to collaborate with international peers, or to amplify your visibility in the international world, choose Sketchbook English.
