Running a training programme is difficult enough in one's own language. In a second language, the task is can be even more daunting. Yet the keys to success are the same: proper planning, clear aims and a good structure.
Try to describe your aims in one short sentence, and keep this sentence in front of you while your are preparing. For example: “This course is to help German-speaking managers write effective and polite e-mails in English.” This should form the basis of the programme description in advertising material.
Prepare your participants:
At least a week in advance, send out information with details of the aims, the venue, the timing of the programme and any other useful tips (directions, dress code etc). For example, you might say, “Please bring some comfortable clothing, as we will be doing a number of relaxation exercises.”
Participants are often nervous when they arrive for a course. They don't know you and they often don't know each other. Put them at ease by greeting them individually when they arrive. For example: “Good morning, I'm Petra Klauss. Welcome to this training programme. Thank you very much for coming.”
