Manuel’s requirements: To improve English for his work, which has international clients
Manuel works for a company near Stuttgart in Germany, which makes coatings for the automotive and furniture industry.
Manuel’s company requires employees to have good English language skills, due to the fact that the company’s sales radius is growing. North America is also one of their core markets, so the ability to speak and understand a high level of English is fundamental.
“My work requires more and more English language skills, and it is essential to speak English to some extent. The most important thing in my opinion is building up a reasonably decent vocabulary. Grammar is important, but to understand and to answer in a free way in English is the way to connect with people.”
