One billion people have German as their mother tongue and 38% of Europe’s population claims to be able to have a conversation in German so speaking German is practical and opens a door to an interesting culture.

We must not forget that Germany is one of the economic pillars of Europe and that speaking German can be a great help when making commercial transactions and entering into dealings with the third most powerful industrial nation and one of the most important exporting countries in the world.

No doubt being able to speak German improves employment opportunities in an increasingly globalised world and is also of importance in the world of tourism.
