Reversing ‘Fossilised Errors’ Course
Depending on the areas that need attention, we develop a plan to reverse fossilised errors. The programme is intended for individuals who already speak some level of German but are prone to habitual mistakes.
Active Communication Skills (Oral & Written)
Studying this programme will significantly improve your ability to write texts, such as emails and reports, and to give presentations in German. The course does not focus only on elements of grammar and syntax but also tone and the correct choice of vocabulary, as well as the cultural and idiosyncratic aspects of communication; in other words, on intercultural tact and awareness. Intercultural tact and awareness contains aspects of diplomacy, courtesy, respect, discretion and thoughtfulness: all in all, mindfulness. The organisation of subject material and the teaching method will be tailored to your needs in order to give you an authentic and relevant learning experience.

Power of Mindfulness & Tactfulness in Communication
Listening with intent to others, while being aware of ones own inner life with equanimity, is an art that holds the power of fundamental transformation.
Tactfulness, particularly in intercultural settings, requires knowlege about the person you are addressing; the need for diplomacy, courtesy, respect, discretion and thoughtfulness: altogether mindfulness.
In this programme we delve into the wide-ranging applicable fields of both mindfulness and (intercultural) tactfulness with a concrete practical approach tailored to the client’s individual needs.
This programme is aimed at anyone who would like to improve his or her communcation skills and benefit greatly therefrom; HR departments, professionals anticipating negotiations or finding themselves in conflict with people and or their own dealings.
