Why learn German?
German is an official language in six European countries making it the European Union’s most widely spoken mother tongue.
It is also the language of music, science and literature, with an impressive list of German speakers who have left their mark on human history. Not to be daunted by the sometimes rather long compound words, the longest being the 64 character “Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz”, German is a distinctive, complex yet logical language with similar roots to English, making it much easier to learn than one thinks.
Learning German facilitates immigration to countries like Germany, Austria and Switzerland and can open the door to new career opportunities allowing individuals both personal and professional growth.
