English with Kirsty – episode 203

Anja Rohde on learning Thai and tips for using what you’ve learned in another language

You can listen to episode 203 here:

In today’s episode, I’m speaking with Anja Rohde, who shares stories from her own experiences of language learning, as well as some practical ways in which you can put your new knowledge into practice as a language learner.

Anja runs a site called Fremdsprachen-Jobs, a site for advertising and finding jobs that require additional language skills. She also teaches German and works as a job coach.

Founded in 2013, Fremdsprachen-Jobs has become a leader in the online job market, specialising in foreign language services in the German-speaking countries (D-A-CH). And it is part of a larger network of diverse foreign language professionals. Through Fremdsprachen-Jobs, employers are able to find those candidates with language skills who really fit their organisational needs, whether as employees, freelancers or trainees. In addition, language professionals from all industries and freelancers such as translators, interpreters, and teachers, are able to find positions where they can actively use their language skills or find new clients.

Anja took over this project in July 2021 because it compliments and is a valuable addition to her work as a German teacher and job coach. Anja has been teaching German since 2011 and working as a job coach since 2020.

You can find out more about Anja’s work and connect with her on Xing, and LinkedIn.
