Previously on Global Gateway: Be prepared!

At the moment we have multiple shows on german TV showing people that emigrate to foreign countries. Many of them aren´t even prepared to face the challenges that lie in front of them. Some don´t even speal the language of the country they move to. Especially when it comes to a business context you should be able to express yourself in an appropiate way. What I did is that I attended a three month business english course end of last year. Based on the Cambridge Business English Certificate one learned to give presentations in english, speak freely, write business letters and get used to business vocabulary. I also attended the offical certification procedure testing every purpose of language skills: reading, writing, speaking, listening. As a conclusion I must say that I feel much more confident after attending this course.

Furthermore, my english teacher Marie helped me a lot with my resume and cover letter. She´s also american, lived in Germany for some years but now went back to Chicago. Thanks again. Hope we can meet again in the US sometime.
