Studying the German language opens the door to understanding and participating in an influential world culture with close relationships to both the English language and our contemporary way of life. Communication with people living in much of northern and central Europe is possible for those who know the German language.

Approximately 120 million people speak German; it is the official language of Austria and Germany, and it is one of several official languages in Liechtenstein, Luxembourg and Switzerland. In Belgium and Denmark, German is a language with special status. German can be an important key to communication in many parts of the world beyond the German-speaking nations as well. In eastern Europe, for example, the use of German as a major language of business has been increasing in recent years.

Do I already need to know German?

The German Language and Culture 10-3Y, 20-3Y, 30-3Y Program of Studies assumes that students will have limited or no previous knowledge of the German language upon entry.

Students who already have a second language, particularly one that is related to the German language, will often learn additional languages more quickly and more easily than those beginning their study of a second language.

German Language And Culture 10 (3-Year Program)

The German Language and Culture course is designed for students who have had little or no experience in German. Students will develop the six basic communicative skills of reading, speaking, writing, listening, viewing and representing. This course is taught with a variety of learning styles to accommodate any learner.
