Study German language

Why German is an important language to learn

Have you ever considered studying the German language? Here are some reasons why studying German is a good idea!

1- German and English have many things in common.

The West-Germanic language is the mother language of many modern and widely spoken languages, such as English and Dutch. If you are a native English speaker, German will be easy to learn as both languages have a lot of vocabulary in common. Some examples are ‘Good morning’ and ‘Guten Morgen’, ‘football’ and ‘Fussball’ or ‘book’ and ‘Buch’. 

If your native language does not have West-Germanic roots, do not worry! There are more reasons why German is one of the most important languages to study.

2- German is very useful if you are traveling in Europe.

As mentioned earlier, many West-European languages have German roots, which means that the German language is very popular in Europe.
