The Advantages of Learning German for Indians

German language also known as Deutsch is a West Germanic language that is mainly spoken in Central Europe. German is one of the majorly spoken languages in the world. It is the most spoken language that is popular in the European Union. German is also taught as a foreign language in Europe and other parts of the world. It is the third most widely spoken language after English and French. The language has been very influential in the fields of theology, philosophy, science, and technology. 


In this article we discuss the top 4 reasons to learn German:


One can attend German universities for free

Getting a decent education can be extremely expensive. One has to spend thousands of dollars to study in an American university. Some students can even end up on a six-figure student loan. In Germany tuition is free for most universities. Only some universities change a semester fee of around 500 Euros per semester. There is no sacrifice when it comes to the quality of education. Most of the German universities are in the world’s top 100.

In countries like the USA, Australia, and New Zealand, international students have to pay double the fees of the domestic students which are not the same in the case of Germany. Thus, it is worth learning the German language if you are looking forward to a free education abroad after your school.


German is a simple language to pick up for English speakers

German and English belong to the same language of the family tree. That is the reason it is easy to learn German for English speakers. Unlike French, Spanish and Italian are Romance languages whereas both German and English belong to the Germanic branch of the Indo-European language family.  However, if you stick to basic English many words are similar to many German words like Bruder (brother) and Freund (friend).  If you are an English speaker learning German can be advantageous. 


Germany has Europe’s largest economy

Germany had an economy of $3.4 trillion making it the fourth-largest economy in the world after China, Japan, and the USA.  Compared to other economies in Europe, it has a comfortable lead against both UK and France, which was $2.9 and $2.5 trillion respectively for the year 2015. Germany is also home to many international automobile companies like Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, Siemens, and stacks of other globally recognized international brands. Having German skills on your CV can be very advantageous if you are willing to pursue your career in Germany.


For science nerds, German is a must-know language

At the turn of the 20th century, Germany has become the official language of science, thanks to the success of leading scientific thinkers such as Sigmund Freud and Max Planck.  Thus if you have fluency in German this will give you an upper hand in understanding the work of some famous German minds such as Albert Einstein. This will also help in keeping the scientific community multilingual. 

Wrapping Up:

It’s no wonder that they are the world’s largest spenders of tourism cash.  You will very certainly come across German speakers wherever you go in Europe, North America, and other areas of the world. Every year, millions of German speakers travel to India for sightseeing but are unable to communicate in English. The hotel, travel, leisure, and tourist industries all benefit from knowing this West Germanic language.
