  • 1. German is easy to acquire

    German is spoken by about 95 million people worldwide, and is the official language of Germany, Austria and parts of Switzerland.English and German both belong to the Germanic branch of the Indo-Europeanlanguage family. Because they are so closely related, they share many features.

    Furthermore, unlike Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Russian, or Arabic, there is no new alphabet to learn, only a few letters to add. If you already know Latin script (and if you do not, I am incredibly amazed you have been following the article this far) the only new arrivals will be the umlauts ä, ö and ü as well as ß which is just a fancy German s.

    That isn't even the best part. German and Indo-Aryan languages share a lot of common grammatical structures and nearly the same word order. So it would definitely not be a Herculean task to establish a command over the language!
