Classes with practitioners
Our business German courses are not only about learning specialized words and phrases or grammar present in professional communication. Among other things, they will also enable you to get to know the culture and business environment in Germany as well as to directly draw on the experience of our teachers who spent many years working abroad themselves.
Each industry has its own specialized vocabulary that you will not happen to learn in general, non-business-oriented classes. Business German includes numerous idioms, official phrases used in forms and correspondence with authorities and business organizations as well as the fluency in making phone calls and last but not least – German small talk!
Business German courses provide a comprehensive preparation for all more or less standard situations that you may encounter while working abroad. It is truly important that you can introduce yourself and greet your new foreign friend in German, but it is even more important that you are able to take the floor during a business conference or brainstorm in a German-speaking company. In the business German courses at our school, you will be able to practice all these situations in order to be fully prepared for professional challenges.
Prüfung Wirtschaftsdeutsch International (PWD) is an exam confirming advanced knowledge of German at the C1 level with particular emphasis on business and economic issues. Due to the high level of qualifications required to pass this exam, a certificate confirming this achievement is highly appreciated by international corporations and employers around the world. The exam requires solid preparation in the form of either a business German course or independent training.
The exam verifies the ability to read and understand a specialized text, to professionally draw up official correspondence, listen to and understand longer messages, talk to customers and business partners as well as introduce and express yourself. The PWD exam consists of a written part, which lasts 180 minutes and is carried out in groups, and a 20-minute individual interview with the examiner.
The form of the PWD exam was developed by the Goethe-Institut, the German Chamber of Industry and Commerce and Carl Duisberg Centers. Although it is one of the most difficult exams testing business German language proficiency, it is definitely worth sitting because if you pass it, you will hold a certificate of advanced knowledge of the German language with particular emphasis on the business environment. Moreover, a certificate of a completed Business German course will additionally prove your strong commitment to increasing your competences as a candidate for a position in a German-speaking company.
