English for office staff at FH JOANNEUM degree programmes

At FH JOANNEUM, an** increasing number of students are starting their English-taught degree programmes without any knowledge of German** and only pick up German, if at all, once they have begun their course. It is therefore harder for them to navigate and plan their studies than for their German-speaking colleagues. The administrative processes and associated terminology are often a mystery for this target group, which does not make your work in the office any easier!

Working in the office, you also have lots of contact with other target groups who can only speak or write English, either in person, on the phone or by email (e.g. telephone or email enquiries from interested parties / applicants, lecturers with regard to ERASMUS mobility, participants of Staff Weeks etc.).

CAMPUS LinguaNEUM can provide support with such communication situations and help you feel more confident.

The two workshops (each 2.5 hours with a break) focus on communication activities with supporting teaching materials and on** simulating typical speaking or writing situations (email)**. The emphasis is on communication and speaking freely but grammar topics can also be repeated, if need be.

Workshop-Programm:

  • Handling everyday office tasks in English
  • Practical phrases, spelling and giving explanations over the phone
  • ‘Social English’ for small talk
  • Arranging appointments in English
  • Building blocks for your email correspondence
  • Route and campus descriptions

The two workshops are aimed at** all office staff at FH JOANNEUM degree programmes**. Max. number of participants: 20

  • Trainer: Eva-Maria Trinkaus, MA
  • Dates: 13.10. and 27.10.2020, 13:00-15:30 incl. break
  • Place: FH JOANNEUM Graz, Eggenberger Allee 11, room tba
  • Costs: € 100,-
  • Registration: via e-mail to languages@fh-joanneum.at by 20 September 2020
