ingenieur.de: It is not uncommon to have business English conversations. What is the best way to prepare?

Maren Pauly: Although we are now talking about English, the setting can be related to German or another mother tongue. Preparing for a job interview or negotiations is the key word here. If someone does not yet feel fully confident in the English language, it is useful to choose keywords. For example, for a specific job you are applying for. Regardless of the language, you can also prepare yourself for certain questions. Typical questions such as “How did you get to know our company” can be asked in English beforehand. So you don’t look like a deer in the headlights.
