CUSTOMER VOICES
Read what four satisfied customers think about my work:




Ich bin als Projektmanagermin bei einem internationalen Baukonzern tätig und benötigte 2009 erstmals für die Projektakquise in Italien und insbesondere die Kundenkontakte schnell fundierte Sprachkompetenz. In intensivem Einzelunterricht habe ich in kurzer Zeit - ausgehend von Null Italienisch-Kenntnissen - Grammatik, Aussprache, allgemeines Vokabular, Fachvokabular und Business-Vokabular vermittelt bekommen. Dabei wurde insbesondere das Lesen und Verstehen von berufsbezogenen Texten sowie das Verfassen eigener Texte geübt. An dem Unterricht von Frau Frank schätze ich besonders, dass sie von Anfang an exakt auf meine besonderen Anforderungen an die Sprache eingegangen ist, so dass der Lernerfolg sehr schnell in der täglichen Arbeit sichtbar wurde. Bei der Auswahl der Lernmittel hat sich Frau Frank immer etwas neues einfallen lassen, so dass es nie eintönig wurde und der erwünschte Sprachschatz erreicht wurde. Die sympathische Art von Frau Frank und ihr Vermögen, Schwachstellen schnell zu erkennen und gezielt zu bekämpfen, haben den Unterricht abgerundet. Ich bin sehr zufrieden und hätte es nie für möglich gehalten, in kurzer Zeit so viel beigebracht zu bekommen. Vielen Dank!
