Helen Louise - Link English Language Training

About Link English Language Training

I am Helen Louise and I am passionate about helping people improve their English. For 20 years I lived and worked in countries where a language other than English was spoken. I’ve studied German and Spanish to quite a high level, and also learnt just enough Bulgarian, Greek and Arabic to get by. This took a lot of time and effort! These experiences helped me understand how important it can be to learn another language, as well as the challenges and frustrations. I often found it difficult to express myself clearly, or be confident that I understood what other people were saying or expecting me to do.

Specialising in English for Healthcare

Healthcare professionals face the specific of challenge of needing to communicate effectively with a wide range of people. I understand the need to adapt your language, including the vocabulary you use, depending whether you are speaking to other healthcare professionals, patients or their relatives.

The Occupational English Test is a widely recognised test of English language proficiency, and highly appropriate for healthcare professionals. As an approved OET teacher, I can help you understand exactly what is required in all the papers, and give you tips and strategies for gaining a high score.


Using a different language in the workplace from the one you use at home isn’t easy! It can be difficult to express yourself clearly, or to understand exactly what colleagues or patients are saying. This can lead to misunderstanding and problems which could potentially be very serious. I can help you improve your speaking, listening, reading and writing skills so that you feel more confident and can communicate more effectively with your colleagues, patients and clients.
