German in Washington DC

Why learn German in Washington, D.C.? – Washington, DC, known not only as the capital of United States, but often “The Capital of the World,” is a global center for trade and commerce. In 2018, CNBC voted D.C. to be the U.S.’ 3rd best metro area to start a business, and ties with Houston and Austin to be one of the most diverse. In such an international city, learning a new language is the best way to make the most of the opportunities offered by foreign markets. German, as one of the most important languages for business, is the ideal choice for anyone seeking to build their career on an international platform. With the E.U. being the U.S.’ largest trading partner, and German the most widely spoken language within it, taking German lessons in Washington, D.C. will allow you to maximize your business potential both in the U.S. and abroad. As the official language of Switzerland, Austria, and Luxembourg, just to name a few, knowing German can help you forge new international connections and expand your horizons worldwide.

Although the U.S. is widely acknowledged to be an English-speaking nation, the country shares closer ties with Germany than most would expect. In 2016, around 44 million US citizens claimed full or partial German ancestry, meaning that almost 1/3 of the total German ethnic population resides in the United States, and aspects of German culture can be found all over D.C. You can visit places such as the Heidelberg Baker for their authentic German breads and sweets, renowned among locals and even presidents. The Goethe Institute frequently organizes music concerts and film festivals featuring some of Germany’s best. As with any culture, learning the language is the key to understanding it. Taking German classes in Washington, D.C. is a perfect way of exploring a fascinating culture which has contributed so much to the arts of our world today.

In today’s age of globalization, bilingualism is a skill increasingly sought after by large companies and businesses. According to a report by New American Economy in 2018, demand for bilingual workers has more than doubled in the last 5 years — more than 1/3 of jobs in Bank of America were advertised for bilinguals! In the U.S., jobs requiring German offer the highest salaries compared to any other languages. German companies such as Liebherr and T-Mobile, a subsidiary of the German telecommunications company Deutsche Telekom AG, have a strong presence in D.C. and are constantly on the lookout for new talent. Taking German courses in Washington, D.C. enhances your employability, allowing you to make the most of a German job market without the need for an expensive flight to Europe!
