Identify your learning motivation
Higher education Students stand to benefit from learning the German language because many undergraduate and graduate programmes either require or recommend learning German in order to be able to follow and enjoy key lectures and texts composed by eminent German professors across a multitude of disciplines.
Arts & Culture As Germany is known for its art and culture, learning German also helps language enthusiasts to appreciate works of literature and music, offering invaluable insights into the Germanic mindset through knowledge of the native tongue. This is especially pertinent when one considers that only 10 per cent of German books are translated into English.
Intercultural communication Knowing German can be of great practical use. It can be used to help anyone visiting Germany or Europe, to find their way around a new place or to catch up with friends and indulge in casual conversation.
