International business languages

Communicate globally

English is the international language of business. Companies doing business with customers from around the globe or active internationally themselves communicate in English on a daily basis. However, they must often also negotiate, reach agreements and make small talk to create a positive atmosphere in other languages such as Chinese, German and Russian.

It is therefore crucial that they master the basics and grammar of these languages in addition to common phrases and expressions – ideally using the terminology specific to their particular industry. We offer specialist language training for experts and executives who are active internationally.
