ENGLISH & INTERCULTURAL COMMUNICATION

Need help communicating across cultures?

Let's talk.

ABOUT ME

20230904_140733_edited_edited_edited.jpg

I’m an English and intercultural communication coach.

My mission is to help Germans find their own voice and comfort in English so they can navigate the English-speaking world with ease and confidence. By integrating intercultural communication skills, I enable my clients to achieve fluency and understand the cultural contexts of their interactions, making their communication effective across cultures.


In today's global society, English is the common language that connects us.
Mastering English is key to breaking down barriers and connecting with people globally. Ideally, you're able to interact and express yourself in English just as you would in your native language—this is what the first layer of my work revolves around.


However, even with a common language, messages can be misunderstood.
Language is more than just words; it’s also about understanding the cultural context in which those words are used. Effective communication in English involves not only fluency but also an awareness of intercultural nuances. This is where my expertise in intercultural communication comes in, helping you navigate and interpret cultural dimensions, ensuring your messages are clear and well-received in global interactions.

WHY WORK WITH ME?


✔ 2 years of serving as a cultural ambassador through the Fulbright Program
 

✔ 2 years of experience teaching English at a Gymnasium

✔ 5 years of experience as a self-employed language coach

 

✔ CELTA certification for English training
 

✔ Cambridge University certification in Intercultural Communication in Global Business
 

✔ Living a multicultural identity (USA-born with Indian and Nepalese roots)

✔ 10 years of communicating, exchanging, and living in various parts of Germany

TESTIMONIALS

"Sapana's work is an amazing help! I work as a costume designer and do artistic research on my own experience as a black Brazilian costume designer for performances that address the topics of blackness, feminism, and queerness. Sapana has always been very supportive and very interested in the topics I work with, which is why I feel so safe collaborating with her."

"My sessions with Sapana are always fun; I look forward to them each time I join. Sapana is a language coach who knows how to explain the English language gently, with a lot of patience and skill. She listens to my needs and tailors the sessions according to my level and interests. I've learned more in the last two months with her than in half a year at the Volkshochschule! I wish I had met Sapana earlier."

"With Masterplan.com, Sapana has been a very reliable partner when it comes to English content localization. Deadlines are always met and communication is fast, smooth, and extremely enjoyable. She's also provided us with independently written, high-quality texts for our learning platform. We thank her for the cooperation and are already looking forward to future collaborations!"

"I’ve tried learning English several times in the past, but nothing has felt as immersive and connecting as my language coaching sessions with Sapana. Her approach revolves around creating a comfortable space and developing a natural, genuine relationship with her clients—which she manages to achieve even through video calls. When we talk, she’s focused on me and my language needs. But rather than a student-teacher dynamic, I feel like a team with her."

The personalized one-on-one sessions have allowed us to focus on my specific needs regarding time, topics, and pace. As a result, my improved language and cultural skills have significantly advanced my professional career. I highly recommend her as a language coach."
