Good reasons for German

Learning any modern foreign language is an enriching experience for a child. As a parent, you play a crucial role in helping your child decide which foreign language he or she should choose to learn.

Good reasons for German:

  • Increased job opportunities in the global economy
    Germany has the largest economy in the European Union and the fourth largest in the world. It ranks fourth among Ireland's international trading partners for imports and exports. German is in demand not only for German-speaking firms abroad, but also for companies enjoying close economic ties to German-speaking countries.  
  • Communicate with over 229 million people in the world
    German is the second most popular foreign  language to learn in the EU and ranks among the top 10 most frequently spoken languages in the world.
  • Study or research in Germany
    Over 10 percent of the total student population in Germany are international students. In new research undertaken by the British Council, Germany came in first place in three categories of higher education: openness; access and equity; quality assurance and degree recognition.
