Why Should I Learn German?

Are you considering studying German as your second or third language? If that's the case, you are also probably wondering if it's something worth pursuing. While it is true there are many languages around the world like French or Chinese that might be interesting, German presents a very unique and challenging opportunity for language learners.

These are some of the reasons why learning German is a good idea:

  • German is not hard for people who speak English. A lot of people have a tendency to think that learning German is particularly hard. Truth be told, when they are faced with long words and weird sounds (that they're not used to hearing) a lot of students might start questioning their ability to tackle German as a second or third language. But we have some good news for you: if you are an English speaker, you are actually already quite advantaged. This happens due to the fact that German and English share the same Germanic root. Did you know that approximately 26 percent of English vocabulary has shared roots with German? Unlike Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Russian, or Arabic, learning German doesn't involve learning a new alphabet (you only need to add a couple of new letters). The new letters included as part of the German language are the umlauts ä, ö and ü as well as ß which is just a fancy German s (and will be even more familiar to you if you know a bit of Latin!).
  • Learning a new and foreign language can help transform your thinking. Did you know that most language students feel like they are evolving as individuals and changing as they start learning a new language? This happens because as you start learning a new language you also develop new skills and start seeing the world in different ways. You also develop a new taste, your attitude changes and you start interacting differently with the world, resulting in a new and exciting worldview.
  • German is culturally relevant. German is a very important language in a lot of fields. These fields include those such as philosophy, science, history, literature and art. This is why many students or academics that are involved in these fields find that knowing German (or at least being able to read it) is a great way to better understand the subject itself. The German-speaking world has introduced us to great literary, musical, artistic and philosophical minds over the years. Some famous writers like Goethe, Kafka, Brecht and Mann did their works in German. It was also the native language of composers Mozart, Bach, Schubert, Beethoven and Wagner and Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, and Heidegger, renowned figures in the world of philosophy.
  • German is a very relevant language. Did you know that Germany has the biggest number of native speakers in the European Union? This means that more people speak German than English, Spanish or French!
  • German is good for your professional career. It is no shock that many German enterprises have international offices and locations. This is why, if you are interested in diving into the corporate world, knowing German will boost your chances of a career with a German company both in Canada or other parts of the world.
  • Germany has excellent academic opportunities that cost practically nothing. If you are looking to pursue your studies in a foreign country outside of Canada, you should know that  you can attend university in Germany for $0.00. Yes, believe it or not, in Germany, tuition is free in most universities. While it is true that it's not the case in all schools (some of them charge around €500 a semester) the average is way lower than what we are used to in Canada. The best thing? Many German universities are in the world’s top 100 so you will get top quality education.
  • It gives you access to a whole new world. This is an absolute plus and oftentimes underrated. Truth is, when you are able to read and understand a new language, you can also understand the culture behind said language. Not many people realize this when studying German, but it will give you access to the German lifestyle and culture on a whole new level. This happens because you will get a first-hand experience instead of relying on translations or other people's interpretations.
  • The German-speaking world has produced some of the most revered filmmakers of the 20th century. Do you love film? Then you should definitely study German! From Fritz Lang to Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Wim Wenders, and many new film directors such as Tom Tykwer and Fatih Akin, you will see that the movie industry is full of German and Austrian talent.
