Learn more about German Language

Spoken in Central Europe, German is a language mostly found in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, South Tyrol in Italy, Belgium, and Lichtenstein. Standard German is based off of the Luther Bible, which was translated by Martin Luther. However, everyday conversational German differs greatly from the standard form. Germany is known for their celebrations of Oktoberfest, with October 3 as their largest holliday: German Unity Day. As the home of some of the world's most famous composers, including Beethoven and Bach, Germany has continued its tradition of birthing great musical minds including the modern composer Hans Zimmer.

Frequently asked questions
Like learning any foreign language, learning German takes practice, patience, and willingness to try something new. There are a few things that German has in common with other world languages. For example, all nouns in German have genders. Learning a new noun in German means learning the word’s gender too. Sometimes, this makes sense — words like “woman,” “boy,” and “queen” have exactly the genders you would expect. But other words like “potato” and “table” have genders too. Like many other world languages, German also uses grammatical cases. An example of a grammatical case is “I” and “me” in English. Finally, people who already know some English may recognize many common German words. Words like “kommen” (to come) and “senden” (to send) are examples. Some German words even come directly from modern English, such as “computer,” “baby,” and “camping.”
