KNOW

German has the largest number of native speakers in the European Union (far more than English, Spanish, or German).

German is among the ten most commonly spoken languages in the world. It is also a lingua franca of Central and Eastern Europe. And as for "all Germans speak English anyway"? That's pure myth.

22 Nobel Prizes in Physics, 30 in Chemistry, and 25 in Medicine have gone to scientists from the three major German-speaking countries, while many laureates from other countries received their training in German universities. Eleven Nobel Prizes in Literature have been awarded to German-language writers, and seven Germans and Austrians have received the Peace Prize.

Germans are world leaders in engineering.

German and English are similar. Many words in German sound and/or look the same as equivalent English words, because the two languages share the same "grandparent." For example, look at these words: Haus = house, Buch = book, Finger = finger, Hand = hand, Name = name, Mutter = mother, schwimmen = to swim, singen = to sing, kommen = to come, blau = blue, alt = old, windig = windy.

The German-speaking world has produced some of the most revered filmmakers of the 20th century – from Fritz Lang to Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Wim Wenders and a new generation of transnational directors such as Tom Tykwer and Fatih Akin. German and Austrian filmmakers such as Lang, Billy Wilder and Ernst Lubitsch also shaped the history of Hollywood.

What do they know that you don't? 5.

Learning a language or improving existing language skills and thus advancing from one level to the next is a complex and challenging task (According to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages published by the Council of Europe in 2000, the levels of learning and teaching are classified as A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, and C2). The structure of the language courses at U. S. INSTITUTE has been modified in order to pay tribute to this fact. U.S. INSTITUTE provides you German Language Coaching as per CEFR at all levels.
