How can I work and learn German on the job?

There are many situations in everyday working life that require you to speak, read or write German: communicating with customers or work colleagues, understanding instructions or safety regulations and documenting work steps, to name a few. For this you will need not only good conversational skills, but a basic vocabulary in the field of work and employment. Language courses for occupational German are helpful here, in addition to using German day-to-day in the workplace.

Please contact your employer to discuss how the company can support you in learning German.
