Course Description

Learn English while having fun making your first Excel spreadsheet. In about one hour you will learn important business vocabulary and the commands that make Excel an awesome piece of software.

The course will start with simple data entry to get you started on your first spreadsheet. While you are learning working your way through the course, there are subtitles so you can follow along and learn from my spoken English. I'll teach you the vocabulary of Excel along with other important business English vocabulary.

You can open up your Excel 2013 and follow along with my simple lessons. You can download the spreadsheet from each lesson and the text with my speaking to the lesson. That way you can put the text into Google translate and translate the English into your own native language. Although, I don't think you'll need to do that.

The course will last about one hour and you will feel comfortable making your own Excel workbook by the end of it. You will also be able to communicate with international colleagues using the language of Excel.

So, take the course now, improve your English and start advancing your career!

Instructor Biography

David Claussen, ESL (English as a Second Language) Teacher for Over 18 Years

I have been teaching English to students all over the world for the last 19 years. Currently I teach ESL (English as a Second Language) in Arvada, Colorado USA at a public middle school and high school.

In 1995 I taught ESL, German and Social Studies at the Institut auf dem Rosenberg in St. Gallen, Switzerland for two years. After that I was the ESL teacher at the American School of Guatemala for the elementary school. From 1999 to 2007, I taught ESL and Social Studies in Denver Public Schools and I moved over full-time in Jeffco Public Schools from 2007.

I'm fluent in German and my Spanish is ok, so I understand how difficult it is to learn a foreign language. I enjoy technology, so I thought it would be helpful to create courses combining my expertise in ESL with important software like Excel, Powerpoint, Youtube and much more.

I've built a Youtube channel for English language learners that has over 5700 subscribers and it keeps growing each day. You can learn English in a unique way and view my free videos at I've made well over 200 videos with many more coming!

My current residence is in Golden, Colorado USA and I love skiing, tennis, basketball and hanging out with my wife and two awesome kids.
