This course is open to all students who are interested in German economic affairs and business communication.
The specialised course "Business Communication in Germany" can only be chosen in combination with and in addition to the language course "Language and Society in Modern Germany". The specialised course in the afternoon takes up eight hours per week and the language course in the morning 20 hours per week. Our weekly programme will be rounded off by additional offers like seminars on German culture, an international choir, a theatre workshop, film nights, sports, and a literature café. These additional offers amount to at least 12 hours per week.
Economic experts use their own language. In this course, we will practise basic business terminology in German, based on current cases in Germany. You will gain the ability to negotiate in German with the help of the "know-how" you will obtain on this course.
