About Cydnie Thompson - Optimal Business English

I was born in London in 1975

I am a dynamic, progressive business English communication developer. (Please feel free to visit

Originally, I started my career working for 6 years in the British media industry (The Guardian, The Observer, Granada TV, Ogilvy and Mather). After realizing I needed to be involved in activities which helped people develop in some way, I went to the University of London to study English Literature (BA) and then to the University of Cambridge (CELTA) and started teaching English in Germany. I gradually moved into teaching business English and have been working in this field for the last 7 years.

I currently design workshops and courses and implement English learning strategies for companies and individuals in England, Germany and Palma De Mallorca.

I wurde 1975 in London geboren.

Ich bin eine dynamische und innovative Kursleiterin für Business English, meine Stärken sind auf der Ebene des Kommunikationstrainings. (Weitere Informationen erhalten Sie unter

Meine Karriere begann mit einer 6-jährigen Tätigkeit in der britischen Medienbrache bei The Guardian, The Observer, zwei renommierten britischen Tageszeitungen, Granada TV, Ogilvy und Mather). Nachdem der Wunsch in mir entstand, anderen Menschen in ihrer beruflichen und persönlichen Weiterentwicklung zu fördern, studierte ich an den Universitäten London Englische Literatur (BA) und anschließend in Cambridge (CELTA) und begann in Deutschland Englisch zu unterrichten. Mein Schwerpunkt ist Business English, in diesem Bereich bin ich nun seit 7 Jahren tätig.

Derzeit gestalte ich Seminare und Kurse in Business English und helfe Unternehmen und Privatpersonen in England, Deutschland und Palma De Mallorca, Lernstrategien umzusetzen.

I'm already an English teacher and I'm not going to apply to this course; however, Ms. Cydnie's presentation was amazingly organized and simple to be understood. And I really hope that students might start applying to such courses and also understanding that not everything that is online has to be free! Good luck my friend
