    While everyone else learns Spanish or French – you’ll be the standout. As a German speaker you’ll be ready to take advantage of all kinds of opportunities now and in the future, such as free university and great job opportunities. And, for English speakers, German is one of the most approachable foreign languages. Ok, some of those words are pretty long, but German is easier to pronounce than many other languages.

“During the first days of my exchange, beginning to understand and speak German was alternately frustrating and hilarious… Eventually speaking German became surprisingly ‘normal’ –  I didn’t have to
always translate words in my mind before speaking, or when listening to someone speaking German.”
