Why German?

German philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein famously said that β€œthe limits of my language means the limits of my world.” To learn a new language is to expand the limits of your world. Taking German classes or learning about German culture will undoubtedly expand your ability to relate with native German speakers and the cultures of German-speaking countries.
The German languages, German Deutsch, is the official language of Germany and Austria, as well as being one of the official languages of Switzerland. German belongs to the West Germanic group of the Indo-European language family, along with English and Dutch. There are also native German-speaking populations in Lichtenstein, Luxembourg, Belgium and Italy. German is a native-language of between 90 and 95 million people worldwide, and is spoken as a second language by 10 to 15 million people.
Germany is the economic powerhouse of the EU and therefore the German-language is a very worthwhile foreign language to learn to speak fluently. It will increase your access to jobs, networking and education within the German-speaking world.

Choosing the right German courses

German lessons do not have to be costly or difficult. The most effective German courses will involve language immersion, where German learning takes place in an environment where every person is encouraged to speak German all the time. Such a type of German class is widely available, and gives students an opportunity to build their conversational German as well as learn German grammar.
Typical German courses will involve a German teacher facilitating a group which learns from each other, while a private one-to-one German class will involve the learner practising directly with a native German speaker.
