Language preparation for work placement
FU International Academy offers intensive language courses to specifically prepare students for internship placements in various fields (i.e. sports, hospitality, hair and beauty, etc). Over the course of 20-30 lessons per week, we use interactive and practical activities as well as interactive technology to develop the necessary skills for communicating in different work situations. We use a variety of supportive teaching materials to enhance this comprehension, including documents, catalogs, Internet, video recordings, selected literature and audiovisual material. These resources adequately equip interns with all relevant language skills needed to effectively accomplish tasks and duties in real work-life settings.
Multilingualism is one of the most welcomed skills at any company, as it allows you to have more learning opportunities and advances your networking abilities while giving you a better chance to land a promotion or new job. The objectives of this course are as follows:
