To help you learn German effectively, we have created a package containing four modules, into one manageable programme
German is part of the West Germanic languages, along with English and Dutch. German was standardised primarily by its literature, as writers wanted to reach as many readers as possible.
As Germany’s amalgamation started during the 19th century, standards were adopted. The Deutsches Wörterbuch, was begun by the Brothers Grimm in 1838 and today, stands as the largest German dictionary
German is spoken by 95 million native speakers worldwide, and is the EU’s most widely spoken native language. The German speaking area extends out to Austria, Switzerland and Liechtenstein. It is also an official language in South Tyrol (Italy), Belgium and Luxembourg, and a minority language in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Czech Republic, Denmark, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Namibia.
German has its own very unique words, which can’t be translated in other languages, and is famous for its extensive use of long words.
