Added Value

Added value for companies



Well-functioning communication in everyday business requires speaking a common language. Good language skills open doors to the international business world and help with the integration of foreign-language employees. Good PC skills are just as indispensable in almost any professional activity today.

SmartTalk manager

  • Training opportunities are highly valued by employees. Existing basic competencies lead to more work efficiency and job satisfaction.

  • Further training opportunities have a team-building effect and promote integration. Employees with poor language or PC skills can integrate better and faster into existing work teams through targeted support.

  • Solid PC skills are a prerequisite in many professions; they open up new fields of work and have a positive effect on workplace flexibility.

  • Good language skills create confidence in dealing with customers, business partners and employees who speak other languages.


  • In addition to language skills, course participants also acquire a great deal of technical know-how in language courses, such as telephony or presentation skills.

  • Companies that want to operate and expand internationally benefit from intercultural knowledge, which is also taught by native-speaking course instructors.
