German language coaching

Knowledge of German language increases one’s job opportunities with European companies in an individual’s own country and abroad. Proficiency in German language assists a person to function productively for a global employer. German is the second most employed scientific language. In addition to this, Germany is the third largest contributor to research and development. Moreover, it offers research fellowships to scientists from abroad. Germany awards an extravagant amount of scholarships and other support to international schoolchildren who study in Germany.

Why should you learn German?

There are a number of reasons why you should study German, and we’ve listed 15 of them below:
  • Germany is the second-largest exporter in the world. 
  • Germany’s economy is ranked first in Europe and fourth globally. Its economy is similar to the combined economies of all Spanish-speaking countries in the globe. 
  • Numerous multinational businesses have their headquarters in Germany. 
  • Germany has made over 10 billion dollars in direct investment in the United States.
  • In the European Union, Germany has the biggest number of native speakers (far more than English, Spanish, or French). 
  • German is one of the top ten most widely spoken languages on the planet. It is also a Central and Eastern European lingua franca. What about the claim that “all Germans speak English anyway”? That is a complete fabrication.
  • Scientists from the three major German-speaking nations have won 22 Nobel Prizes in Physics, 30 in Chemistry, and 25 in Medicine, while many laureates from other countries obtained their education at German universities. Eleven Nobel Prizes in Literature have been granted to German-language writers, and the Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to seven Germans and Austrians. 
  • Engineers in Germany are world leaders.
  • German and English have a lot in common. Because the two languages share the same “grandparent,” many German words sound and/or look the same as corresponding English terms. Take the following words for example:
      • Haus = home
      • Buch = book
      • Finger = finger
      • Hand = hand
      • Name = name
      • Mutter = mother
      • Schwimmen = swim
      • Singen = to song
      • Kommen = to come
      • Blau = blue
      • Alt = old
      • Windig = windy
  • From Fritz Lang through Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Wim Wenders, and a new generation of transnational directors like Tom Tykwer and Fatih Akin, the German-speaking world has produced some of the most acclaimed filmmakers of the twentieth century. Lang, Billy Wilder, and Ernst Lubitsch were among the German and Austrian directors who impacted Hollywood’s history.
  • Goethe, Marx, Nietzsche, and Kafka all spoke German, as did Mann, Brecht, and Grass. Mozart, Beethoven, and Schubert, Brahms, Schumann, Wagner, Mahler, and Schoenberg, as well as Freud, Weber, Einstein, and Heisenberg, Kant, Hegel, and Heidegger, spoke and wrote German. 
  • German is the world’s second-most-used scientific language. 
  • Only around a quarter of the world’s books are published in German, and only a small percentage of them are ever translated into English. 
  • German is the stepping stone to a world-class education. 
  • Many of the most significant works of philosophy, literature, music, art history, religion, psychology, chemistry, physics, engineering, and medicine in the Western world were published in German and are still being written in German.
