Why Learn German Language


Recommended Posts

There are many reasons why you should learn German language – below we highlight 15 of those reasons:

  • Germany is the world’s second-largest exporter.
  • The German economy ranks number one in Europe and number four worldwide. Its economy is comparable to that of all the world’s Spanish-speaking countriescombined.
  • Germany is home to numerous international corporations.
  • Direct investment by Germany in the United States is over ten billion dollars.

  • German has the largest number of native speakers in the European Union (far more than English, Spanish, or French).
  • German is among the ten most commonly spoken languages in the world. It is also a lingua franca of Central and Eastern Europe. And as for “all Germans speak English anyway”? That’s pure myth.
  • 22 Nobel Prizes in Physics, 30 in Chemistry, and 25 in Medicine have gone to scientists from the three major German-speaking countries, while many laureates from other countries received their training in German universities. Eleven Nobel Prizes in Literature have been awarded to German-language writers, and seven Germans and Austrians have received the Peace Prize.
  • Germans are world leaders in engineering.
  • German and English are similar. Many words in German sound and/or look the same as equivalent English words, because the two languages share the same “grandparent.” For example, look at these words:
    • Haus = house, Buch = book, Finger = finger, Hand = hand,
    • Name = name, Mutter = mother, schwimmen = swim,
    • singen = to sing, kommen = to come, blau = blue, alt = old,
    • windig = windy.
  • The German-speaking world has produced some of the most revered filmmakers of the 20th century – from Fritz Lang to Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Wim Wenders and a new generation of transnational directors such as Tom Tykwer and Fatih Akin. German and Austrian filmmakers such as Lang, Billy Wilder and Ernst Lubitsch also shaped the history of Hollywood.\
