Our customers are becoming ever more successful because for more than ten years we have been helping them improve their command of German!
The Dutch are used to visitors who do not speak their language because they are aware that they live in a small country where people focus on doing business with other countries. The majority of the Dutch can communicate in English without batting an eyelid. The most common complaint from foreigners visiting the country is that they are not given a chance to learn the language because everyone immediately replies in English when addressed by foreigners. The Dutch often believe they can communicate in English abroad as well, but that is not the case in every country.
Should you cross the border into Germany, you are not only confronted with the German language but their approach to foreign languages also differs significantly from that of the Dutch. Not everyone speaks English. Their culture is also different. Business success depends on communication skills and understanding the culture and general knowledge of the Germans.
Academie Aan de Angstel has more than ten years of experience supporting professionals working in Germany. We have trained entrepreneurs, key account managers, lawyers, bankers and medical doctors and other medical staff to successfully do business and/or work in Germany.
Custom-made training courses
After an initial intake meeting, we determine, in close collaboration with our customer, the focus of the training course:
- Conversations, presentations, writing email messages or quotes, etc.
- Jargon used within your professional field.
- Behaviour (formal or informal forms of address, getting down to business quickly during the first meeting, etc.).
We also take the current language level of our students into account. At Academie Aan de Angstel the teacher is a native speaker with many years of experience teaching their language. The courses are provided for a single individual or a small group.
