German

German language training

The German language is actually related to Dutch, as they belong to the same language family. Many Dutch people who studied German at school think they can manage using the language well. That is the case to a certain extent, however, should conversations become more complex, more advanced use of the language will be needed. A German language course will help build vocabulary, understand the principles of grammar and use the cases correctly. Cultural awareness also plays a role within this training course. Although Germany and the Netherlands are neighbours, there are considerable differences in, for example, hierarchy and manners. More language and knowledge culture often means more conviction and that is what you really need in business conversations when using the German language.
