Re: german courses in zurich

It is a common misconseption that you need a certain document on paper (B2 or C1) to get a job. Employers dont really care. They post a job opening in German, you send a CV in German and then you have an interivew and potentially a test (Einstellungstest) that could actually be in English to test your numerical and/or english language skills and thats it You could have a C2 on paper, but if you don't speak coherently its going to be hard.

Well typically you need an interview first to get a job and if you have the certificate it helps. They love paper here, especially nice, official paper. But I agree, the paper won't matter if your German is bad in the interview.

Re: german courses in zurich

Very interesting topic. What would be the way to do this in a street smart way? what i mean is a conversation club for beginners, only focused on talking. Any ideas?

There are many German courses in Zurich, even for free. There is one school that offers free German lessons, three times a week. Their ideology is pretty interesting, they think education must be free. If you are interested, here is the webpage. Good luck!
