German is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, and more Europeans speak German natively than English, French, Italian or Spanish. 24% of the residents in the European Union speak German as their mother tongue, and 31% of European Union citizens say they can converse in German. A reading knowledge of German is a great advantage in many fields, such as international law, philosophy, psychology, and technology, as well as chemistry, physics, biology, engineering and design. Whether you've already begun to learn German, or are just starting out, our program will connect you to the German-speaking countries and their culture.
