If you already speak a bit of the language that you want to learn, but you want more confidence when you speak, you should choose a brush up course. You will strengthen your language skills and gain greater certainty and confidence, and you will be able to carry out meetings and engage in conversations in the language.
The course is planned for people who have already learned some of the language but need a brush up, for example, to improve communication with colleagues or business partners.
Participants may also need to increase their vocabulary within a particular area.
How will you benefit?
When you have finished the course, you have:
- Become more secure in speaking the language
- Increased vocabulary, so you can handle more situations
- Eradicated grammatical errors
- Tools to maintain your knowledge - and continue to improve
- Tools so you can analyze your language and constantly do it better and more accurately
- Gained greater linguistic confidence
During the course we will also give participants knowledge of the business culture and various cultural conventions.
How are the classes conducted?
We always take into account the participants' needs and tailor the course accordingly.
Most people initially need to speak the language. That is why we work a lot with speech skills and conversational exercises. We include listening and writing exercises to the extent desired by the employees.
We emphasize varied teaching techniques, so we use many different types of assignments, among other things, role-playing. We work with textbooks and authentic materials, often from the participants' professional field.
We choose teaching materials based on the needs of the participants.
Which languages can you learn?
Naturally, we teach the main European languages: English, German, French, Spanish and Italian. You can also learn a variety of other languages such as Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Polish, Dutch and Greek. We teach the languages spoken in the Nordic countries: Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, Icelandic and Greenlandic, and we offer courses in languages like Indonesian, Hindi, Thai, Persian and Hebrew. Contact us if you need a language that is not mentioned here.
Courses can be run as group classes or on a one-to-one basis.
On a brush up course we recommend 30 to 40 lessons.
We typically arrange classes with 3-lesson sessions once or twice per week.
Courses can begin at any point in the year with approximately one week’s notice and can be held at the company premises or at Studieskolen in Borgergade, Copenhagen.
