Why should you
learn German?

 

The German language

Learn German and see how similar it is to English. German, like English and Dutch, are part of the larger Indo-European language family, and it's become one of the major languages of the world with an estimated 95–100 million speakers. Within the European Union, native German speakers can be found in Germany and Austria; parts of Switzerland, Lichtenstein, Luxemburg; and to a lesser degree in Italy, France, and Belgium.

Fun German facts

Learn German and you'll also learn more about some of the intriguing legends of the land-like the siren Lorelei, who called merchant ships to her rocky shore along the Rhine River. You can read the full stories of the Brothers Grimm in their native language. Or what about the legend of Faust (or Faustus), a mythical man who sold his soul to the devil in return for power and knowledge in this life? (Mind you, there'll be no need for such extreme measures to learn German with Rosetta Stone!

About the German culture and history

Learning German will help you become less of a tourist and get closer to real German culture. Although most Germans speak a fair amount of English, it's such a treat to be able to understand the meanings of untranslatable words like Gemütlichkeit, which means an overarching sense of cordiality and friendliness. Or, something you may well acquire as a result of enjoying too much amazing German food: Kummerspeck, which is excess weight gained from e motional overeating. Literally, it means "grief bacon." And, of course you'll want to protect yourself from becoming the Packesel of the group—the person who's stuck carrying everyone else's bags on a trip (literally, "a burro").
