Further education at sofatutor - let’s improve our Business English skills!
At sofatutor, learning and education are our top priorities – which is why learning is one of our company’s core values. Learning at sofatutor doesn’t just stop with pupils studying on our platform, employees can also benefit from regular training.
One of these opportunities is weekly English classes. Every Wednesday, my colleagues from the Talent Acquisition Team and I meet for 1.5 hours in the online classroom with our teacher from Barlingua, to level up our English skills.
sofatutor employs many international colleagues which is why English is our company language. In our daily business, we have to conduct many conversations and job interviews as well as write emails in English. Therefore, it is essential for our team to sharpen our skills in order to communicate with candidates on a professional level.
During the classes we deal with a wide variety of topics:
We work on worksheets on relevant subjects such as “Questions for HR Professionals”, “Diplomatic Language” or “Business Ethics”. We also discuss scenes from well-known movies or TV series and watch interesting TED talks. This is how we learn to express our opinions in a more professional and fluent manner in English. Additionally, the regular final round with our weekly update on “Movies, Books or Events” is very popular and there are always some interesting tips to be shared in the group.
In my opinion, the English course is a real highlight every week and I always look forward to the exchange with my team outside the context of everyday work. It is great that sofatutor gives us the opportunity to improve our knowledge and become more confident in dealing with our international colleagues. Of course, sofatutor offers English courses on various proficiency levels to all employees, as well as German courses for non-native speakers in the company.
