Would you like to Learn German in Germany?
German is a West Germanic language, thus related to and classified alongside English and Dutch. It is one of the world’s major languages and the most widely spoken first language in the European Union.
Around the world, German is spoken by approximately 105 million native speakers and also by about 80 million non-native speakers. Standard German is widely taught in schools, universities and Goethe Institutes worldwide.
It is overall the third most learned language worldwide.
The history of the language begins with the High German consonant shift during the migration period, separating Old High German dialects from Old Saxon.
As Germany was divided into many different states, the only force working for a unification or standardization of German during a period of several hundred years was the general preference of writers trying to write in a way that could be understood in the largest possible area.
