Company Language Courses for the Job
Due to increasing globalization, the world is getting smaller and smaller. Companies expand to different continents, but communication between companies remains. Since communication is a cornerstone of successful business, it should be as smooth and error-free as possible. And the more international communication channels become, the higher the language requirements. In some jobs, school English is sufficient, but others require other foreign languages or industry-specific vocabulary.
languages at work
Foreign languages are used in a wide variety of places in professional life. It starts with simple phone calls, emails or letters. Where you don’t have to think at all in your language, you suddenly have difficulties in the foreign language when you are confronted with the situation. How do I greet my business partner? What greeting and closing formulas are there?
It gets more stressful when you face the business partner personally or a whole group. Foreign language presentations and business lunches are becoming more and more common. In addition, it often happens that during international meetings one has to express one’s arguments in a foreign language or participate effectively in discussions. It could also be that you work in a sub-area of industry where a very specific vocabulary is required.
How do I find the right course?
At the beginning you have to ask yourself what you want to achieve through the course. Do you just want to improve your language skills or do you want to be able to apply social skills in the foreign language or are there also intercultural values that need to be conveyed? If you are part of a group where everyone is at about the same language level and are pursuing the same goals, it is advisable to book group lessons. This has a positive effect on the price and could offer the advantage of binding the group together.
The easiest way is to get advice at the beginning and to arrange a trial lesson right away. A good language course should then respond precisely to your wishes and needs and issue a language certificate at the end.
