This course serves as an introduction to the language of commerce and industry in the German-speaking world. You will enhance your communicative skills in German–writing, speaking, listening, reading, and translating–while learning about the training, workday life, and goals of German businesspeople, and also about the various organizations in which they work.
You will become familiar with German standards for a variety of business documents, and will learn to interact confidently in a variety of professional situations, not least by developing an active command of specialized vocabulary. Current magazine and newspaper articles, as well as websites, will facilitate a better understanding of the business culture shaping Germany today.
I look forward to hearing from you if you would like me to teach Wirtschaftsdeutsch / Business German at your institution.
