German is not as hard as you think

If English is your native language, or if you already know English, then you already have an advantage when it comes to learning German. Because modern German and modern English both evolved from the common ancestor language Germanic, the two languages share many similarities in both vocabulary and grammar.

German is one of the most important cultural languages. It was spoken and written by Goethe, Mozart, Beethoven, Freud, Klimt and Einstein, and numerous other great artists and scientists. Today, 10% of all books published worldwide are in German language.


Children should start learning at young age. Children love learning languages, especially with our fun approach. Young children are quick to absorb pronunciation and vocabulary without any inhibitions. If children enjoy their early exposure to a foreign language and culture, they will retain this, ensuring a head-start at secondary school.

German is required or recommended by many Graduate and Undergraduate Programs. German speakers' strong contribution in such a broad array of fields makes the language an important asset in many disciplines. At the University of California, for instance, more majors recommend the knowledge of German as an important supplement than any other language.

Considering the importance of the German language in the fields of publishing and research, it's not surprising that many graduate schools want their graduates to have at least a reading knowledge of German. Knowing German gives graduates access to important research published in German books and professional journals.

Travel and Tourism Industry

Germans are the biggest spenders of tourist dollars in the world. Germans especially favor travel to warm Mediterranean climates, such as can be found in Spain, Italy, Turkey, and Greece, and travel to Eastern European countries is increasing in popularity. Travel Agencies, Tour companies, Hotels, Airlines and Car rental Agencies that can communicate with Germans in German will win business.
