Business English

The goal of the Business English program at level C1 is to enable students to work or study in an international environment, whether abroad or here in Germany. Students delve into the world of work by discussing, presenting, and writing about current issues in business and economics. Students from all disciplines are very welcome to join our classes.

Classroom activities put equal emphasis on the four basic skill areas: listening, reading, writing and speaking. These four competencies are evaluated through a final examination consisting of two tests (listening and reading) and a portfolio of graded writing and speaking activities.

The Business English I course must be completed successfully before a student may enroll in Business English II. The completion of both courses can lead to a UNIcert® III examination (approximates Level C1 “Effective Operational Proficiency” of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages), which can be added to future job applications.
