Does this sound like you?
" I fought so hard to land my job and now I feel inadequate because I can't say what I want to say."
"I have so many ideas in my head but not enough words to explain them."
"I'm so scared of making a fool out of myself, that I'll stay quiet even knowing my idea is better."
"I feel like I have the vocabulary of a 3-year-old, well maybe they can say more than I can. I have a B2 certificate by the way."
"In my annual review, my boss said that I am too shy and I need to speak more. I've known this since day 1 but I don't even know where to start."
"It's so frustrating to know I studied for a long time and I'm still embarrassed to give presentations in German."
It's not just you.
You can Sound as professional in German as you actually are.
THIS COULD BE YOU...
The sessions made me feel sure about my abilities and that mistakes are not that bad.
I learned that making mistakes is not a failure.
I came out of my comfort zone, not just in the sessions but in my life.
I am more and more open. I now understand that not getting the article right isn't the end of the world.
Before, I didn't dare to speak. The methodology helped me lead my ensemble. I feel very good and free now.

Here's a success story
"Before, I didn't dare to speak. The methodology helped me lead my ensemble. I feel very good and free now. "
I’m María Lindo, I have been working with Authentic Learning Berlin for only 2 months. Before, I didn't dare to speak. The methodology helped me lead my ensemble with more confidence, even though it's not my native language. I feel very good and free now.
We went to a gallery and we analyzed the pictures. We talked about colors, textures, window displays. We read about music, my favorite artists, and all of this for me to improve my business skills. I’m very happy with the development that I have had with the Authentic Learning Berlin.

The Rock the Job curriculum
Rock the job is made up of two modules over a two-week period. Each of the components is specifically designed to activate and foster your business German skills.
The first module focuses on your speaking, whether it's small talk or presentations. Each 90-minute session will hone in a different skill and will also give you time to focus on building the vocabulary that is relevant for your specific line of work.
Module 1 includes a workshop that will get you to break down the walls around your German and help overcome stage fright.
The 2nd module focuses on your writing skills, whether it's taking notes at a meeting, making slides, or sending formal emails.
Module 2 also gives you time to concentrate on relevant vocabulary.
This module ends with a final challenge to put all of your newly acquired and potentialized business German skills to the test.

Here is proof that it works
"My vocabulary was very limited and overall, I would just stay quiet.. "
I loved the method! I had previously studied German for years but could not really speak. My vocabulary was very limited and overall, I would just stay quiet. The course gave me the confidence to actually start speaking up in team meetings. I not only improved my German but learned about myself.
