Difficult to learn - that is the perception many have about the German language. But if you are an English speaker, you already have a leg up. English and German are linguistic siblings because they originate from the same mother tongue. And with over 128 million people worldwide speaking German as a second or learned language, you will be in good company.
If you decide to take on learning this cultural language, which is the official language of Germany and Austria, and one of the official languages of Switzerland, you will not be disappointed.
