German language

Language Overview

German is a West Germanic language, thus related to and classified alongside English and Dutch. It is one of the world’s major languages and the most widely spoken first language in the European Union.

Regions Spoken

German is spoken primarily in Germany (more than 80 million speakers), Austria (8 million), Switzerland (4.6 million), Belgium (75.000 people), Luxembourg ( 390.000). The majority of the small population of Liechtenstein also speaks German. Outside of Europe and the former Soviet Union, the largest German-speaking communities are to be found in the United States, Canada, Brazil and in Argentina where millions of Germans migrated in the last 200 years.


German is spoken by approximately 105 million native speakers and also by about 80 million non-native speakers. Standard German is widely taught in schools, and universities.

Brief History

The history of the language begins with the High German consonant shift during the migration period, separating Old High German dialects from Old Saxon. English and German languages belong to the Germanic family. English, as a matter of fact, was originally a variety of West Germanic in approximately 500 BC. It was not until 200-700 AD that both languages began to diverge, in those days they were “High German” and “Old English”. Over the centuries these dialects continued to adapt and evolve into the distinct languages we know today. After World War II ended, the destruction that stretched across the country led allied countries including the United States and England to send aid to Germany. Since that time, the friendly relationship between Germany and English-speaking nations has grown, leading to a need for clear and accurate communication. This relationship was further solidified in the early ’90s when the Berlin Wall was finally dismantled, opening up the entire country to freedom, and to free enterprise.
