Do you – or someone in your company – need to get better at speaking or writing in German?
If you work for a larger Danish business, you often gain more than you might think from getting better at German. Germany is one of Denmark’s largest export markets, so if you learn to speak or write better German, you can use those skills in many different situations.
Most Germans speak such a good level of English that many non-Germans simply avoid speaking German. If you are the one supplier or partner that does speak to your German counterparts in their mother tongue, you achieve many benefits:
- You stand out and clearly show that you are willing to do something extra for this partnership
- You will be able to reach a different depth in your conversations because your German partner will understand you better and you can have more nuanced and detailed conversations
- You get to know your partners better because they are more relaxed when they talk to you
There can be many reasons you want to get better at German now. Perhaps you:
- Just started a new job or have new responsibilities that involve working with Germans
- Need to step up the partnership you have with your German clients because you are making a bigger push for the German market
- Have to attend concrete meetings or a conference and you need to be better at German for very specific conversations
Whatever your reasons for considering strengthening your German skills now, one of Studieskolen’s business courses in German may be what you need. We offer one-to-one lessons as well as group lessons for your entire team.
Why you should choose German courses at Studieskolen
At Studieskolen, we have more than 40 years’ experience teaching foreign languages. All our teachers have a university degree and receive our internal training in teaching a foreign language before they teach our clients. We continuously hone our teaching methods and we also teach Denmark’s upper secondary education (‘gymnasie’) teachers how to teach foreign languages using our methods. We know that the language teaching you receive at Studieskolen is in a class of its own.
We always target our business courses to your specific organisation because each individual organisation has specific needs:
Your classes must be efficient so that you quickly learn exactly what you need – and not all kinds of other stuff. For this reason, we base our teaching on the tasks you have to accomplish.
If you need to improve your written German, we can go through the fundamental touches that make your emails and other texts look professional and 100% German. If you are making a presentation in German, we practise it until you can do it. And if you are attending an important meeting, we practise the entire conversation and drill the different outcomes the conversation might have.
For most of our business clients, it is of great importance that we plan all teaching based on their specific field. This is because when you know the terms of your trade, you have the foundations for taking control of a conversation and any grammatical errors become less important. If you are already familiar with the most important terms of your trade in German, then we can concentrate on the grammar, your pronunciation or on making your language more fluent.
Ready to make a plan?
If you want to start your German course now, we can normally have a plan ready within a few weeks.
Before we can give you a concrete offer, we need to hear a little more about your needs and about how many you are. We are happy to visit and have a non-binding talk with you, your manager or your HR consultant, if you prefer. We can also meet online using Teams or similar.
The classes can take place in our classrooms in Borgergade, at your location or online.
