Business English for European Works Councils

Intensive Course for Members of the EWC of one Company

The Euroteam Concept: Working Together!

Improve the effectiveness of your EWC - speak one language.

You want to enhance communication, understanding, trust and knowledge within the European Works Council of the company you work for? You want to be able to talk to each other without interpreters alongside your meetings and/or conferences? Very often it is during the meals, in the breaks, in the evenings that informal conversations take place - but also very often these conversations happen mostly among the “national” groups, don't they?

We help you to achieve these goals! In our seminars, which we have created for the specific purposes of EWCs, the participants from one company and many different countries have the opportunity to work on their English language skills. We provide you with all the specific vocabulary that you need. Plus they spend time together, which means improving contacts, improving their cross-cultural understanding.

You will do a lot of creative activities together. You will become a real team.
