Description: 
In the last few years the requirements for employees working for international companies have changed steadily and are still changing at a breathtaking speed. This is mainly due to increasing globalization, the desire to set up international working-teams and the requirement for employees to be more flexible with regard to their job location. One of the consequences of this development is an increased demand for foreign languages, since communication competence is becoming more and more important.   In this course the student will gain proficiency in the skilful use of the German language and will be able to refine the language tools necessary to be able to effectively participate in the host community and to express self in almost all situations.
