Move up successfully and confidently in the international business world - with the help of excellent trainers with intercultural expertise and many years of experience
Being able to operate in an international environment requires a sound knowledge of English, the global working language, but also demands your sensitivity to the cultural environment and the business context you are exposed to. Our trainers will help you and your company to succeed on the international market with language training, yet they will convey more than just foreign language competence.
Our training solutions are customized to your individual needs (in other foreign languages too), and we offer reliable and competent support in the development of your foreign language competence. Whether you want to learn a new language or just fine-tune your language skills, you can rely on our expertise.
Our objective is that you can function successfully and confidently in an international business context. The content of our training courses is therefore geared to your daily challenges on your job: meetings, presentations, e-mail communication and telephone calls are just as much a part of it as conducting negotiations, small talk or English on the shop floor.
Our learning formats for language courses: a maximum degree of individuality, quality and flexibility for your professional success
Individual one-on-one and group training
You won´t find any "standard" training with us. Our focus lies in individual training that picks you up at your current level of knowledge and steers you to your personal goal. We customize one-on-one training courses or create a program for a group of 2-8 colleagues who would like to develop their skills as a team.
Needs analysis for language courses: We pick you up at your current level of knowledge
Working together with you, we determine your current level of language proficiency. We identify the different professional situations you have to master; assess which competences you possess already and then we can close the gap. In doing so, we follow the European Framework of Reference for Language Competence (CEF), but above all we keep your interests and goals in mind.
Before starting the program, you can of course take our written online test. A preliminary briefing with your trainer rounds off our planning concept for your sustained learning success.
Customized training: Mastering successful international collaboration
Your experienced language coach designs your language training based on the results of the needs analysis – customized, and practice-oriented, with passion and creativity. And by applying all his/her experience in internationally operating companies. In doing so, however, we always keep in mind that you need more than vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation to work successfully at the international level.
Our trainers are communication experts and "live" intercultural competence. They also know the challenges faced by technical experts and managers in a globally operating company.
Individual appointment scheduling: Suitable solutions for your calendar
We place a lot of importance on personal relationships and therefore you will find the classic classroom training concept, either in your company or even at your home. You plan your appointments flexibly and adapted to your own scheduling needs with your language coach.
Do you travel a lot on your job, or does your calendar not allow you to make fixed weekly appointments? If so, then our live online training is the solution. Learn whenever and wherever you would like to. With your personal language coach. You only need a laptop/PC and a headset. Available for many languages.
Our language coaches – the key to your learning success
It is our opinion that a competent trainer is the key to your learning success. This is why we set high standards as far as qualifications and personality for the language coaches we recruit.
We require a university degree, a broad repertoire of teaching methods and didactic knowledge. Many of our trainers bring their experience from the business world and they all have teaching experience in various branches and companies – from small and medium-sized businesses to corporations. Learn from and with language coaches who really know your work environment and who are not just starting out in the business world.
We work with full professionals from the field of language and intercultural training who have been with us for many years as partners. Outstandingly qualified experts with in-depth training experience who will accompany you on a long-term basis.
