German in New York

Why learn German in New York City? – New York City: the home of Broadway, the Yankees, the Statue of Liberty, and 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 – taking German lessons in New York City might prove to be the most exclusive language learning experience of your life.


Neighborhood statistics aside, why should you care about learning German? For starters, German is the most widely spoken native language in the EU and the second most popular Germanic language after English. It’s a good thing New York is so well connected as well, since once you grasp the basics, you can fly out to Austria, Switzerland, Italy (South Tyrol), Belgium (home to 70,000 German speakers in Eastern Belgium), Liechtenstein, Luxembourg or, obviously, Germany. All of these countries either have German as an official language or have huge German-speaking communities and almost all of them fly directly from Newark or JFK. Fun fact: many resort areas in Europe, like Palma de Mallorca, have significant German settlements, meaning that you can bypass having to learn each and every source language if you pocket those German classes in New York City.

Rubbing elbows with German-Americans and the German language will also prove beneficial for your future. For one, those of German descent represent 22% of the U.S. population, according to census data, and have produced the likes of five presidents, Levi Strauss and countless others. German courses in New York City will open doors for you professionally—New York City even has a German-American Chamber of Commerce office with a database of 3,700 German firms across the United States.

Whether you’re looking to enjoy Oktoberfest at its maximum, travel across Europe or get ahead in your career, learning German in New York City is the right move. Join the 100 million people who speak German worldwide and allow it to be your passport to fun and success. The best part is you don’t have to do this all on your own. At Language Trainers, we specialize in finding the best possible German trainer for your needs, to teach you at a time and location to suit you. Send us an inquiry to find out more about our personalized German courses.
