New York City is the home of Broadway, the Yankees, the Statue of Liberty, and is one of the best cities in the US to celebrate Oktoberfest. The Big Apple has been committed to German culture and traditions since 1784 when the German Society of New York City was founded. Since that time, New York has grown to be a diverse metropolis with 19.8 million people in 2018 and 800 spoken languages, but it has also remained a hub of German culture in the United States. Among the city's varied neighborhoods, there are still areas where German is spoken, so taking German lessons in New York City will be an asset if you are looking to make new friends or to find a new job.

Why Study German in New York City

Learn German for Work and Travel: German is the most widely spoken native language in the EU and the second most popular Germanic language after English. If you are planning to go on holidays to a German-speaking country, you will be pleased to know New York is very well connected, with direct flights to Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg and Germany. All of these countries either have German as an official language or have huge German-speaking communities, so taking classes with us will prove very useful when traveling! If you want to advance in your career, German courses in New York City will open doors for you professionally. For example, you can contact the German-American Chamber of Commerce office on Pine St, an institution founded in 1987 that today has a database of 3,700 German firms across the United States.

Learn German for Culture: If you are not looking for a job but are more interested in German culture, you will be glad to know there are many places in New York where you can experience it. You can visit the Neue Galerie New York, a museum of early twentieth-century German and Austrian art and design located in the William Starr Miller House on 86th Street. Founded in 2001, it features the work of famous artists such as Gustav Klimt and also of local artists of German origin, who usually attend the exhibitions themselves. Why not approach them after the event to practice the German pronunciation you acquire with Language Trainers?

Learn German for Social: Those more interested in making friends with a similar interest in German can join the New York City German Culture Group. With more than 4,800 members who meet in their monthly events, this group aims at joining people who are interested in the German culture, no matter their origin or language level. After the meeting, why not go to a German restaurant with your friends and impress them with your vocabulary and pronunciation? For example, Heidelberg Restaurant on 2nd Avenue is a friendly and warm space for lovers of the Austrian-German cuisine. And don’t forget you can also experience the traditional Oktoberfest at Watermark Bar on South St. without leaving the USA! You can try authentic German beer, lederhosen, pretzels and have fun with the stein holding contests!
