This advanced level German language course offers an insight into business practices, such as hiring and firing, labor laws, the developing entrepreneurship scene in Germany, and the ever changing role of the European Union. Aging population, immigration, a changing education system, and a reduced social benefit system are some of the trends that can be observed in many European countries; and businesses have to adapt to them. The opportunity of taking the Zertifikat Deutsch für den Beruf ZDfD and extensive practice for this test will be provided in the class.
