Guten tag! Hallo, Little Global Citizen!
Learn German with Carousel of Languages
There are so many wonderful reasons to introduce your young child to German!
Spoken around the globe, German is the first or second language of about 135 million people. Within the European Union, German is the most widely spoken language, and 5 countries of the EU recognize it as an official language, including Germany and Austria (in which it is the only official language), as well as Belgium, Liechtenstein and Luxembourg. It’s an official language of Switzerland, and is also spoken in parts of France and Northern Italy.
English and German are sister languages, sharing almost half their vocabulary, and making German relatively easy for English speakers to learn.
Germany is known for its love of hearty food such as beer and sausage, its folk music, and its enormous contributions over many centuries to the fields of art, music, philosophy, and more. The German language boasts one of the most famous literary achievements of all times–the printing of the Gutenberg bible in the 1450s. German culture is famed for its emphasis on order, logic and reason, as well as being honest, forthright, and always on time. It’s a wonderful place to travel and a popular study abroad location.
