Why You Should Learn German Language

We often hear that the German language does not have a particularly beautiful sound and that it is difficult to learn because of the many cases and genders.

Here some reasons why you should definitely get to know our language better:

  • 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 countries combined.
  • Germany is home to numerous international corporations.
  • A global career: With a knowledge of German you can improve your career opportunities with German companies in your own country and in other countries.
  • 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.
