What is Law Enforcement English?

Law Enforcement English is specialized in English for Specific Purposes (ESP), namely in Police English, or in English for the Police. I offer unique and practical online courses and Skype lessons for bettering your professional English. Having worked with different European agencies, I am sure that it can be a challenging situation to use English in this special setting. Hence, I believe, it is crucial to provide the vocabulary, the expressions and the grammar that you will actually use. The varied materials range from terrorism, organized crime to criminal profiling or patrolling vocabulary.

Why Choose Me?

What My Students Say

Zsolt’s lectures were amazing and satisfying. You don’t just learn English but get a tiny piece of the culture as well. You could see behind the curtain, get to know how a word is to be said correctly and why. It was an adventure for me, and for a moment I felt like a real English person. If I could give 6 stars, I would definitely give it.

The Guide to Teaching Law Enforcement

English serves the function of providing tips and exercises for classes of Law Enforcement English and also for General English classes.

Mainly, it is designed to help Law Enforcement teachers (and students) build their kits (tools for learning) and focus on topics, such as crime scene investigation, terrorism, serial killers or CSI. Besides its ‘Appendix’, which is full of useful links, you can find ‘Case Studies’ that might be used in your class. The purpose of these case studies is to make classes interactive and encourage practical thinking in students . It is also indispensable to mention that in-class experience might vary from the experience and know-hows of your students, as the exercises are meant to be used in classrooms. In addition, The Guide to Teaching Law Enforcement English contains a handful of resources and sample exercises that may be adjustable to the needs of your classes.

The Guide to Teaching Law Enforcement English has 12 chapters, covering the following topics:

Briefing, Serial Killers, Crime Types, Crime Scene vs Scene of the Crime, Crime Scene Investigation, Interrogation, Body Language, Terrorism, Organized Crime, Human Smuggling, Drug / Alcohol Smuggling and Cybercrime.

These aspects of law enforcement are viewed from a teaching perspective, that is, this guide provides ideas how to incorporate these issues in your classes. Besides the topics above, there is a chapter on Methodology, which analyses some of the methodologies and makes comment on them. Finally, it has case studies that you can also teach in their entireties and one chapter Appendix, full of links.”
