A large multi-national company with offices in Surrey had decided to relocate two of their UK staff to the German office. While the colleagues in the German office spoke English, the staff members also needed to be able to communicate in German, especially outside the workplace. They had one German GCSE between them.
Language Learners planned eight weeks of intensive classes covering introductions, shopping, restaurants, health and accommodation-hunting. We also looked at cultural differences including those concerning business, so that both staff members were able to feel confidence in their ability to make new connections without causing offence!
