Business English Training

Deutschkurse firmenintern & online

Eine wesentliche Voraussetzung für die erfolgreiche Integration neuer 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 Mitarbeitende ihre hohen fachlichen Kompetenzen wesentlich effektiver ins Unternehmen einbringen. Gerne stehe ich als Sprachtrainerin, insbesondere in der Onboarding-Phase, begleitend und unterstützend zur Seite!
