Understanding the details of a job posting, putting together a flawless cover letter or becoming sufficiently fluent in the local language in anticipation of the introductory interview – these are all features addressed by Babbel’s new “Job Course”. Anyone wishing to live abroad can study vocabulary which is designed to help them find a job in German, Spanish, French, Italian or Portuguese. Tailored to individual learning levels, the Babbel course is a great preparation for the application process.
Interactive exercises as well as vocabulary trainers and pronunciation examples offer relevant vocabulary necessary for applying in a foreign language. The Babbel Review Manager provides step-by-step training of words and phrases for a quick apprehension of the material and the opportunity to start a job search right away.
Finally, first impressions count: when the course is completed, applicants preparing with Babbel for their experience abroad, receive a certificate proving their language training – yet another bonus point for their application.
