Over 229 million people worldwide speak German, and German is the official language in a number of the most scenic countries in the world— including Austria, Belgium, Germany, parts of Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Poland, and Switzerland. While some may have the perception that German is a difficult language to tackle, that’s not necessarily the case. And it shouldn’t deter you from studying German and taking on the challenge to learn it.
If you are an English speaker, you already have an advantage! German is widely accepted as one of the easier languages for native English speakers to learn. This is because they are true linguistic siblings—originating from the same mother tongue. In fact, 80 out of the 100 most used words in English are of Germanic origin.
With the fast pace of today’s society, most people have little spare time to devote to commuting to an in-person classroom to learn a new language. If you want to study and learn German by taking an online German course, that’s where Rosetta Stone can help!
