German as a foreign language

German as a foreign language

As long as humans have existed they’ve been learning languages. Because understanding the language of others is the key to their culture and their hearts. It may sound like a cliché, but it’s true today nevertheless: good language skills are vital to successful integration.

Have you taken on staff from other countries who already have a knowledge of German? Or are you planning to recruit people who have a different first language? You can not only support the integration of these employees but also boost their productivity right from the start.
