Mr Avinash is a great personality. He is my mentor and always ready to help students and Corporate. He leaves no stone un-turned and makes experiential learning interesting. I wish him great success ahead…


A letter from a professional to an aspiring job seeker student, Gaurav Jain.

Dear friends,

I’m Gaurav Jain. I did my CMA from Jaipur Chapter & have recently taken CS final exam. I worked in Chennai, presently I’m working with Binani Cement; this is my second job. Its my experience that degrees, diplomas & Certificates are just tokens to enter Corporate. Its hard work coupled with Professionalism, leadership, Spoken English & Soft Skills that matter a lot to get promoted in a job.

Formal school & college education system lacks soft skills training in India. We as students try to learn these skills immediately after CA, CS or CMA professional exams one month prior to an interview in an haphazard way & 95% of us get rejected, rest settle with some mediocre jobs. Even if we manage to get a job in some Multinational, we somehow manage the expectation, the pressure to perform; we keep changing bosses & companies to satisfy our stupid ego without realizing that its us that lack skills & not the Company.

I was trained by Avinash Sir 3 years back for 3 months in English Phonetics & Interview Skills. He made me aware with a word of caution to continue learning throughout my career & life. In his words: “Learning stops at death. It would be wise to bring these skills in our daily lifestyle living blissfully. Whosoever interacts with us in work or life should be encouraged by our professionalism, personality, wisdom, humour, creativity, decisions, soft language, behaviour, attitude, working style, leadership approach, body language & clothing.”

Since Avinash Sir trains from CEOs to lower level Managers to students with equal ease. I wished to get trained by him further in soft skills but it remained a dream. I kept calling him these years for mentoring & consultancy and was satisfied with analysis and solutions. I’m really delighted that he is starting Online Consultancy & Training support for students, professionals & Corporate like us who need continuous training & consultancy.

My best wishes to Sir Avinash  for his professional initiative. His id on Skype is: Avinash Kumar Arvind

Our IPA Posh English Courses for Global Professionals:

Open your doors to freedom & choice!

We Help top Professionals, Corporate & Businessman Speak IPA English & Enjoy Making Great Progress in their Life & Career!

‘Smart Minds English’ is the only scientific innovation that ensures every learner becomes fluent in English within six months. It uses world’s only IPA Spoken English Drills besides advanced learning theories and cutting edge technologies.

Why is Smart Minds English different?

Swimming can be learned ONLY by REAL swimming – not by mugging-up “Swimming Theories”.

Car driving can be learned ONLY by REAL driving – not by memorising “Driving Theories” by heart.

Similarly, Speaking of English can be acquired ONLY BY SPEAKING. ‘Smart Minds English’ uses the latest innovations to ENSURE learners speak! ‘Smart Minds English’ diminishes the all “failed methods” that competitors cheated students in the past.

‘Smart Minds English’ is different because:

It’s Speaking based, NOT grammar based. It uses Spoken English Workshops to make the learner speak. It employs patented feedback tools to improve grammar and enhance vocabulary. You will be surprised how learners respond to random, rapid questions on the spot in English!

It’s based on Content-based Instruction (Theme-based Learning) Methodology. The only way for an adult to acquire second language skills. Opportunity to acquire meaningful English skills through Technology, Science, Management, Witt Wisdom, Success Secrets, Love, Romance etc.

Everyone gets personalised lessons based on his/her current level of English – after analysing short-comings in English language – and his/her future ambitions.

It provides Contextual Feedbacks:

No feedback is actionable unless it is factual, timely and convincing. ‘Smart Minds English’ uses patented methodology to provide revealing, actionable feedbacks.

It Fine-tunes body-language and improves ‘Likeability’. Most crucial success factor as 80 to 90% of communication happens non-verbally. ‘Smart Minds English’ captures body-language for evaluation.

Why ordinary spoken English classes in the market fail?

Like school, they force you to mug-up disconnected grammar rules, and isolated vocabulary lists.

They have one-size-fits-all approach: Everybody gets the same lessons, irrespective of their current level.

Ordinary Classroom – teacher, board, marker pen and the failed methodology!

These classes don’t help compose meaningful responses on the spot in real life situations.

Irrelevant training material copied from the old grammar books of 1970s.

No motivation. No confidence. Old processes don’t bring any expectancy belief in students.

Low quality and high quantity. Most of the classes are run by unemployed unsuccessful people without any uniqueness to demonstrate Skills.

Customised programs for students, job seekers, job changers, corporate, executives, foreign travel aspirants, housewives etc

English learning is about 2000 crores business in India. Enter our course with full enthusiasm, uniqueness and innovation. There will not be any competition for ‘Smart Minds English’ uniqueness.
