Advantages of mini groups
Our classes do not exceed 5 persons but may very well be even smaller. The fewer students per class the more intense the tuition will become.
- You will be able to ask a lot more questions concerning your current situation (work or studies)
- The learning experience is much more intense than in a larger group
- The fewer students, the more intense the tuition becomes.
- We can focus better on the needs of everybody.
Contents of Course
Our career package consists of 4 lectures.
Lecture I “The Austrian Job Market and its institutions"
Lecture II “Interpretation of Austrian Job Offers and Writing adequate motivational letters in German”
Lecture III “How to Write a CV in German”
Lecture IV “Preparation for a Job Interview in German language”
Please note: we are no job agency, therefor we are not allowed to convey jobs! We will only help you interpret your job offers and help you write your job applications from a language-point-of-view!
Check of your Application Documents & Practice of Job Interview
First we will teach you how to create a CV and a cover letter in German, then you will have to fabricate these important documents at home. After you have written them, you will give them to a teacher who can then read and correct them. Afterwards you will sit together and he or she will tell you how to enhance your documents and you will have the opportunity to ask questions.
We will also help you to prepare for a German job interview by providing often-asked questions & exercising good answers, important phrases and terminology, etc. You will have then the opportunity to practice a job interview with a teacher: you will choose a job offer that applies to your interest and skills and give it to your teacher, so that he or she can prepare a job interview with you. After the interview you will be given feedback.
Course Units of sole participants
Please consider that we are a very small language school. It can happen, that you are the only person having booked our career package. As we do not want to cancel courses, we decided to reduce the number of daily units by one.
In fact your course will turn into individual tuition at group rate. Should you be alone, you will receive only 2 units of tuition a day. Please consider, that your individual tuition will be much more intense and we can concentrate more on your needs!
Of course, individual lessons on Friday will not be reduced! You will definitely have 2 units of individual tuition on Friday!
