German is one of the world’s most popular languages to learn, thanks to Germany’s strong cultural and economic influence. As the economic powerhouse of the European Union, German can be an asset if you want to work in international trade. If you study the arts and literature, German is an asset if you want to read some of the world’s most beloved writers like Goethe or Kafka. Of course, if you’ve wanted to experience life in Germany and want to travel there, some German will obviously help you navigate the country. And why not learn German for fun? After all, Germany is famous for its beers, football, cars, and cuisine - learning the language will give you unique insight into an incredibly rich culture.
Should you happen to be in Montreal, you are fortunate enough to be in a city where learning German is surprisingly easy. While the city is perhaps better known for its connection to French culture, its multicultural atmosphere and European ambiance make it a perfect place to study any language. Study in the city’s quirky cafes and take long walks up the eponymous Mont Royal. Sure, this isn’t Europe - but it's as close as you can get in North America, and you will find a hip, international vibe unique from any other Canadian city.
Let’s take a closer look at some reasons you should learn a new language, and where you can learn German in Montreal.
Travel to Germany
Travel is quite possibly the most popular reason to learn German, and it’s not hard to see why. Germany is an exciting, multicultural country filled with quaint villages and beautiful cities you can spend months exploring. Consider Berlin, quite possibly the coolest city in Europe, with its artsy vibes and hipster culture. Germany’s capital city is filled with attractions and museums. Or perhaps you are interested in taking a drive down the Autobahn, Germany’s famous roadway with no speed limit. Nature lovers will also find plenty in Germany’s mountains, and those looking for a true European gem can visit the glorious Neuschwanstein Castle.
If this sounds fun it’s because it is - learn German and plan your adventure in Germany!
Enhance your Brain
When you learn German, your brain will become stronger as learning a new language can help improve your cognitive function. Research has found that being multilingual can help your brain resist Alzheimer’s as well, which is another great reason to learn a new language. And let’s not forget how important it is to push yourself to learn new things - German is one of the most challenging languages to learn. Taking language classes can also help you improve your mental health as you broaden your social circle and connect with new people with the same interests.
Embrace German Culture
Perhaps you have a German heritage, or simply love German culture. Learning German will give you an access point to truly engage in German culture and socialize with others. Picture yourself communicating with your relatives in Germany, or simply being proficient enough to strike up a conversation with a native German speaker on a trip. Learn the language, and you will discover a whole new way to experience a different culture.
Montreal has plenty of resources for those looking to immerse themselves in German culture without leaving the country. The German Society of Montreal fosters German language and culture through events, exhibitions, movies, and concerts, so be sure to check out their site for upcoming activities.
If you are looking for a place to learn the language, check out the Goethe Institut of Montreal, which specialises in German language classes, literature, arts, media, and more. Have a look at their calendar for upcoming courses and events. German Language Schools Quebec also has a location in Montreal where you can find German classes.
For a truly unforgettable German experience, visit Montreal’s own Oktoberfest. Located in the Old Port, this annual celebration includes plenty of German food, Bavarian music, and traditional dancing. Who knows, perhaps you will one day make it to Munich for the original!
College and University programs in German are a popular way to learn language while earning a degree or certificate. Dawson College has a program that provides students with an opportunity to travel to Germany for a reasonable price. Concordia university offers a minor program in German: combine this minor with another program in business or the arts! If you are looking for a comprehensive academic program, McGill University has a German Studies program for undergraduate and graduate students. There are plenty of options for anyone looking to learn: define your goals and pick the program that will serve your needs best.
Another fantastic option for learning German is to hire a private tutor or a teacher. A private tutor is great for many reasons: you can supplement a class you are taking, have someone to help you through your independent study, brush up on conversation skills, learn business vocabulary, or simply learn enough German to get you through your next European adventure. You choose what goals you want to achieve, and your tutor can work with you to get you there.
With a private tutor, you can also have some flexibility with scheduling and location. Getting to a German class downtown can feel arduous after a long day; a tutor, on the other hand, can meet you at a cafe, in your home, or even virtually through a Zoom call or Google Meet.
One of the best reasons to get a tutor is the one-to-one attention you will get for practicing conversation. Many tutors are native speakers of German, and can converse with you so you can improve your ability to use German in social and practical situations. If you can’t make it to Germany anytime soon, having a native speaker to talk to can be priceless.
