The language of Germany (the largest economy in Europe), Austria and Switzerland is a bold language with a proud heritage. We invite you to say "Guten Tag" to our German teachers as they immerse your children in the language of philosophers and poets, monarchs and Mozart, Einstein and engineering.
German has the largest number of native speakers in the European Union (far more than English, Spanish, or French).German is among the ten most commonly spoken languages in the world. It is also a lingua franca of Central and Eastern Europe.95 Nobel Prizes have gone to scientists, writers and thinkers from the three major German-speaking countries.Germans are world leaders in engineering.German and English are similar. Many words in German sound and/or look the same as equivalent English words, because the two languages share the same "grandparent." For example, look at these words: Haus = house, Buch = book, Finger = finger, Hand = hand, Name = name, Mutter = mother, schwimmen = to swim, singen = to sing, kommen = to come, blau = blue, alt = old, windig = windy.
