James Mowlam is a truly British native English speaker and a professional business English trainer with a CELTA (Certificate in English language teaching to adults) and masses of teaching and commercial experience. A fine graduate, James worked for 15 years as an auctioneer and valuer at a major London auction house. He has been teaching here in Vienna since 2005 and even though there is not yet a single fish and chip shop in the city he is proud to call at his home.
James’ bespoke lessons and seminars focus on communication rather than linguistic perfection. He matches grammar and vocabulary to the business English training that his students really need. He inspires them to want to get out there and say what they have to say in English.
