"Dagelijkse (zakelijke) communicatie NL-DE" is a downloadable e-learning module for PC (Windows, Internet Explorer).
Are you looking for a method to learn (or refresh your memory) how to communicate in general (professional) situations: standard expressions used when making telephone calls, writing emails or letters, making appointments and meeting people, but also skills ranging from making reservations at a hotel to checking out, eating at a restaurant and especially, avoiding all sorts of problems.
Or, maybe you are not (or are no longer) fluent in German and would like to do something about it, but you don’t have the time to take a year or more of language classes.
In both cases, "Dagelijkse (zakelijke) communicatie NL-DE" can help.
In the many communication exercises, one single mouse click will give you handy, structured tips about the use of certain expressions. Thanks to a well thought-out didactic progression, you will, through self-study, learn how to communicate effectively, using realistic dialogues.
However, good communication also means grammatically correct language use. To help you with this, there is a concise basic communication grammar. And to really put this grammar into practice, you can navigate by a simple click to the grammar exercises, where every exercise contains feedback.
And as the icing on the cake, you can consult the comprehensive built-in dictionary.
The contrastive approach is also unique: not only are all statements and explanations given in Dutch, but you will also learn how to avoid the typical and persistent interference errors. These are mistakes that are usually made due to the influence of the learner's mother tongue or of English.
The module is based on an EU-wide study into foreign language communication problems in European businesses (especially small and medium-sized enterprises) that transcend sectors and job functions.
"Dagelijkse (zakelijke) communicatie NL-DE" allows you to choose how you study, when you study, and what you study, according to your own schedule, your needs and your personal learning style.
In short, this is not a language course in the classic sense; it is not a traditional language course with standard written exercises or lessons, but a unique, multimedia, surprising and above all effective language learning method!
