German in Dallas
Dallas, a booming metropolis, is home to more than a million North Texans, and many of them have German roots. In the early 1800s, Germans made up almost a third of European immigrants in Texas and, up until the 1970s, a distinct dialect called Texas-German could be heard throughout the state. Although the language is no longer as popular, the region’s history is dotted with German influences, and Dallas’ status as a trade hub has drawn several German businesses to the area. If you would like to advance in your career, travel to Germany, or even communicate with the more than 8,000 people of German ancestry living in Dallas (according to the 2011 census), just contact us at Language Trainers and we can start designing the perfect course for you!
Why Study German in Dallas
For Work: As trade with the European Union increases, it only makes sense to learn its most-popular language, German. According to a 2016 Texas State government report, Germany ranks No. 2 in Texas for foreign direct investment, and its companies employ more than 43,000 people in the state. With the popularity of the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, a welcoming business environment, and a low tax rate, Dallas will only attract more foreign companies in the coming years. You may also be interested in contacting the German American Chamber of Commerce of the Southern United States on MacArthur Blvd, an organization that supports the economic relations between the Southern United States and Germany. This institution provides several networking opportunities throughout Texas, such as the annual Dallas Strategy and Pricing Forum at the Four Seasons Resort. Large businesses, like the Union Bank of Switzerland, also have offices in Dallas, and support cultural initiatives through the Dallas Goethe Center, the Johanniter Humanitarian Group of Texas, and the Dallas-Fort Worth chapter of the World Affairs Council. Many of these groups host events throughout the year that provide a great incentive to take a German course in Dallas!
For Social: Those looking to socialize with others who also love German culture can find many instances for doing so in Dallas. Beer, sausage and polka music are all abound in Texas’ Oktoberfest celebrations, some of which rival Germany’s own. Fredericksburg, known as the Polka Capital of Texas, holds one of the biggest parties in the state, while Dallas’ neighbor Fort Worth hosts Oktoberfest two weekends in a row. You can also find some authentic German food at one of the city’s popular spots, like Kuby’s Sausage House on Snider Plaza, where you can have a taste of sausage, sauerkraut and traditional German beer, or Henk’s Deli on Blackwell Street, a stylish restaurant that offers cakes and catering of German origin. And if you are looking to make some German-speaking friends, you can join the Dallas German Language MeetUp Group. It has more than 1200 members who get together every Thursday at a bar to have dinner and practice some German.
For Culture: By learning German in Dallas, you can go deeper than eating traditional food: you will also have the opportunity to connect with some of the city’s history while giving yourself the chance to speak with German native speakers. For example, you can visit the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum on Houston Street, an institution that, since 1984, has been dedicated to teaching the history of the Holocaust and advocating for human rights. Most of the artifacts’ descriptions are written in German, so it will be useful for you to learn this language with us! Also, if you are keen on German cinema, you can attend the annual World Languages and Literatures Film Festival. This event always features German movies in their original language. It is a great occasion for you to put your listening skills into practice!
