Business English course in Leipzig and nationwide: Business English with intercultural competence for the job and professional use


Intercultural communication training in a country-specific context is offered with Business English. Traditionally English courses have primarily focused on conveying British and US-American standard varieties to their course participants. Today, the majority of international encounters, in which English is used, take place in the absence of native speakers of English. Intercultural skills thus play a bigger role when communicating in English. My English courses take this into account by incorporating intercultural communication skills into the training which give participants the necessary linguistic competence to deal with interculturally critical situations.

In my business English courses you learn, how to communicate freely and fluently in the business language English - whether in a meeting, in a telephone conversation, in the context of a presentation or when practicing small talk with business partners.

My business English courses set the thematic priorities:

  • Presentations
  • Negotiations
  • English for Marketing and Sales
  • English for Management
  • Finance English
  • Applications-/Job Interviews
  • Business correspondence (E-Mails etc.)

Regardless in what branch you are professionally active, you will learn to master dialogues in English based on concrete, typical job situations. As German-American and CELTA certified trainer for Business English I possess native-level competence in the English language and am well aware of the linguistic barriers and intercultural challenges which might arise for employees and executives in critical situations on an international scale.

My clients from Leipzig and from all over Germany want to study Business English in order to prepare themselves for their current job and to better meet international challenges in their job.

Within the context of individual training or small group training with 10 persons at maximum, they learn the appropriate communication strategies and wording in Business English required for negotiations, making offers, informal meetings and telephone conferences. Depending on their needs, this training is conveyed through role-plays and practically relevant exercises in Leipzig or all over Germany. This includes also grammar exercises, speaking, correct pronunciation, as well as on request intercultural soft skills for working with international teams.

Prerequisite to register for a language course: advanced beginner’s level (at least language level A2 according the common European framework), registration based on oral placement test.
