One of the the major languages of the world, German is the first language of about 95 million people worldwide and the most widely spoken native language in the EU. German also is the third most widely taught foreign language in both the US (after Spanish and French) and the EU (after English and French; at lower secondary level), the second most commonly used scientific language as well as the third most widely used language on websites (after English and Russian). The German speaking countries are ranked fifth in terms of annual publication of new books, with one tenth of all books (including e-books) in the world being published in the German language.
This Group’s activities are designed for German learners who have already studied the language for some time and have a good grasp of the fundamentals. Members will be able to build on their previous knowledge to develop further their language skills (speaking, reading, writing and listening)
This Group is one of three focussed on the German Language.
