Why Study German?

It’s an official language in Germany, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, and Lichtenstein making it the fourth most spoken language in the world, and the second most commonly used scientific language. Germany is the third largest contributor to research and development. For example, in 2020 BioNTech, Pfizer’s partner in Germany, developed the first COVID-19 vaccine.

You enjoy Germany’s innovative climate and know that Germany’s number one export is machinery including computers, followed by vehicles, electrical machinery and equipment, pharmaceuticals, as well as air- and spacecraft.
