The German Language

Alongside English, German is one of the world's major languages. It also happens to be one of the most widely spoken languages in the European Union and is spoken worldwide by almost 200 million people. Widely taught in schools and universities it is positioned overall third as the most learned language in the world. It is an equally important language in commerce, business and a relatively dominant language on the internet.

 

The Challenge

Teaching German is a challenge that is efficiently supported by our dynamic Native Language Academic Teaching Staff. Our curriculum is one of methodology as well as communicative tasks, which stimulates, provokes and perpetuates the young learner's need to succeed and feel confident in a German speaking environment. Great care and sensitivity to the individual needs of the learner is warranted by the teacher with whom contact is made and supported by a day-to-day study program. We believe the more one is confronted with German, the better aware one becomes with its real world use and practice.
