Many English words come from German and the pronunciation is very logical so it has features which make it relatively straightforward to learn in the early stages. Any foreign language requires a lot of time and effort to achieve fluency, but we are sure your child will soon realise how worthwhile it is and start to enjoy communicating in German.
Many students find German a useful stepping-stone to perceived harder languages such as Russian and Chinese. German is considered to be one of the more academic subjects and is highly valued by employers and Universities alike. We run a very successful German Exchange with our partner Jesuit school St. Blasien in the Black Forest.
