You have increased the number of international staff members in your German offices and your meetings are held in English the moment a non-German speaking staff member is attending. This is all in line with your having implemented English as your official company language.
But communication is a two-way street and everyone would definitely benefit when your international staff could also communicate in German and meet your German speakers halfway.
So do get in touch with us. We would be happy to arrange group or individual courses for you.
Hamburg prides itself as being Germany’s “Gateway to the World” and has Germany’s largest seaport by volume. The Philippines, on the other hand, is the world’s main supplier of seafarers. It’s no wonder then that Hamburg and its many maritime companies have a special longstanding relationship with Filipinos and Philippine culture.
Together with the Austronesian Department of the Asia-Africa-Institute of the University of Hamburg, we have been providing Filipino (Tagalog) courses as part of the university’s extracurricular program. We are also currently involved in developing their language syllabus for their Austronesian studies program and will be helping to launch this in summer 2022.
If you would like to learn the Tagalog language or know more about Filipino culture, do contact us. We also provide intercultural competence seminars with the Philippines being one of our expertise areas and have been a trusted partner in helping companies improve their working relationship with Filipino staff or Filipino business partners.
You know that language and communication are key to you and your company’s success. So why not take that first step in engaging with your partners worldwide in their own language? Whether it’s to easily build that rapport to get the relationship off to a great start or to lay the foundations for a secondment in another department in the opposite part of the world, we can help you learn the language you need.
