When is the Ready for Work course a particularly good choice?

Especially in a professional context, terminology is of great importance.

To learn professional vocabulary

Can your employees speak German but find themselves lacking in professional vocabulary? The Ready for Work language course will enable you to eliminate this problem and address it at an early stage during onboarding.

This language course enhances the integration of employees in the workplace.

To integrate your staff members

Do your employees need support as they take their first steps, seek to understand the work culture and look to integrate themselves into your organisation? We will make it easier for them to get started. On the Ready for Work German course, your staff will improve more than just their language skills.

Reacting in a foreign language is unnatural at the beginning.

To dismantle language barriers

Do your employees find it difficult to respond appropriately in German? On this language training course, participants will be confronted with common professional or workplace situations and learn to deal with them during group simulations so that they can avoid misunderstandings.
