  • Preparation for conferences and presentations
  • Simulating various conversation situations in role plays
  • Acting and reacting confidently and independently in your daily business routine


The seminar comprises five modules:


Module 1 (90 minutes) gives you the basics such as greetings/ saying goodbye, how to start a conversation and small talk. Its purpose is to introduce you to the world of international communication and gives you a feeling for the do's and don'ts.


Module 2 (90 minutes): Become an expert in understanding emails! Your international contact partners are rarely English native speakers and often even more uncertain than you are. What exactly does your counterpart mean? And what did he/she actually want to achieve or avoid? Study case examples from your daily work routine, discuss them and evaluate them.


Module 3 (90 minutes): Never be speechless again! Using up-to-date expressions on the telephone and in direct contact situations. Watch out for "false friends". And what you should avoid at all costs! Learn vocabulary and expressions which will turn you into a respected and self-confident conversation partner.


Module 4 (90 minutes): Mastering concrete everyday situations. Become well prepared for typical dialogues in the office/administration/projects.

 

Module 5 (90 minutes): Texts/meetings/preparing presentations/designing professional invitations.
