Firmeninterne Kurse in Deutsch als Fremdsprache for English native speakers

Eine wesentliche Voraussetzung für die erfolgreiche Integration neuer englischsprachiger Fach- und Führungskräfte sind Grundkenntnisse der deutschen Sprache. Diese sind für die Verständigung am Arbeitsplatz, das rasche Knüpfen von Sozial- und Businesskontakten sowie das Zugehörigkeitsgefühl und "Ankommen" von großer Bedeutung. So können MitarbeiterInnen ihre hohen fachlichen Kompetenzen wesentlich effektiver ins Unternehmen einbringen. Im Rahmen eines Deutsch Einzel- oder Kleingruppencoachings stehe ich in der Onboarding-Phase gerne als Sprachtrainerin begleitend und unterstützend zur Seite.
