Your German language training

Before designing your Business German language training we will carry out a detailed needs analysis and level assessment.

Popular Business German topics include understanding and writing emails, speaking to clients face-to-face and on the phone, participating effectively in meetings, and developing social and networking language.

General and Business Language Training

Language learning is hands-on and practical, so you can use what you have learnt outside the classroom from the very start. Our course has the flexibility to adapt if new needs emerge at any point during training.

Cross-Cultural Communication Skills

Our experienced language trainers will also provide you with practical skills and knowledge to ensure effective cross-cultural communication with German-speaking colleagues, partners and clients.

Industry-Specific Language Training

Our trainers design and deliver industry-specific training in German across a wide range of sectors. Recent courses have focused on German for Finance, Retail, Hospitality and Marketing.

International House not only prepared us for daily social situations, but also went above and beyond to create specific work scenarios we would encounter on a daily basis making our transition into a foreign country that much easier.
