We had to do a written and an oral test first. So we were put into 4 different groups, concerning the English-level.

i think the grammar and the spelling isnt that important as long you know how to say it and the others understand you, its be all good

We were given a test before as well. I ended up in the best group - but due to the fact, that most of my colleagues never really had to use their knowledge I was still one of the best.

As soon as someone talked English on the phone - the call was put through to me - Gute_Seele, there is someone on the phone and he speaks English!

No matter whether he just dailed the wrong number or wanted to sell something, had a question regarding one of our projects ... - almost every call was forwared to my extension.

Fortunately this has stopped now.

Hi,

I think it is a great idea to talk in English here. Unfortunately, I don´t use any English at work. Neither do I have English trainings there. Next thursday I will participate in an IHK-Business-English-Course. As this is going to show how good my English still is, I´m very excited.

In my opinion, the English-threads here are really helpful. I like reading them.

Nobody´s perfect.

Hi Mirabelle,

we used to have English training at work. My problem was, that my oral skills were way above the level of my colleagues.

So the trainer and I agreed that I can stop attending the training.

In order to keep my knowledge alive, I read a lot and try to watch most movies at the English movie theater here.

My sister told me yesterday that she might visit me this weekend - I'm still waiting for her call.

We tried several times to have an English-thread on a regular basis. It worked out for 1 week or so - and then it stopped.

We started again - and it stopped ... But we simply have to keep on trying *g*

Now that we have a separate sub-section in the forum for English, chances to keep it alive are rising!-)

i never had english practice at work. but i teached myself. i used to be bad in school but since my dad showed me some american chatprograms i learned more and more.

ok my gramma sucks and my spelling isnt good at all but at least i can talk fluently.

and 2 of my ex boyfriends been a good help for me. one of them is from canada and the other one is from the states.

but since im working sometimes in the event security business, i could speak often with our costumers and their guests in english.

ok during the period of time where i worked in a hotel i had to speak often englisch as well.

the best way to learn it, is learning by doing.

Liebe Grüße BerlinerGöre

Yes thats true. It's very important to have the possibility to talk or write in English for improving your skills. A colleague of mine wasn't that good in the written test but after the oral test the teacher put him in the best group. Most of his business contacts are abroad and he often travels abroad for two weeks for business matters - so he is quite good in conversation but his grammar isn't that good.

I used to have some English training years ago at work and did a business-english-course at the VHS. It was quite ok concerning the low costs. But in the last 5 years I nearly had no English at university so for me its quite good to have this training at work because I need it for business purpose.

Regards, Mira

But in case you have to do the correspondence at work it is very important to have the right grammar.

I just want to open this thread for talking a bit English with you.

First of all I've to tell you that we've just got English training at work. This week we had our first lesson and I enjoyed it a lot. We will do some business English. Do you also have English training at work?

I wish you a very nice weekend. The weather won't be that good, but let's make the best of it. (very german phrase I think)

So long,

Mira
