Almost 300 million people speak German

Did you know that German is among the ten most important languages in the world? More than 100 million people speak German as their native language. And there are currently almost 300 million people who have learned German in some way.

It is spoken as a national language in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Liechtenstein. In Luxembourg, Belgium (eastern part) and Italy (South Tyrol), it enjoys the status of an official language. German is also spoken in France (Alsace) and some Central European countries.

German-speaking schools are also widespread: Worldwide there are 140 international German schools. Switzerland recognises and supports 18 international Swiss schools.

Is German a difficult language?

In 1880 Mark Twain wrote a humorous essay about the German language called “The Awful German Language”. He made fun of the rules and exceptions of German grammar and of the overall complexity of the language.

But is German really that difficult?

Learning to speak, understand and write German is indeed not an easy task. It requires plenty of patience, discipline and perseverance. But German is also a very logical language. Once you become familiar with the basic principles of the language, rapid progress is possible.

If you learn German, a fascinating and diverse world opens up to you: from classic literature (Goethe, Schiller, Hesse, etc.) to modern music (pop, New German Wave, German rap, etc.) to contemporary entertainment (Loriot, Otto, German "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?", etc.).
