GERMAN AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE

German is the most widely spoken native language in Europe. English, French and German are the three official working languages of the European Union. In absolute numbers, German is the second most-spoken language on the continent of Europe. However, when it comes to native speakers, German is number one. For centuries the language serves as a lingua franca (a common language which unifies different peoples) in large parts of the European continent. It continues to serve this purpose as an important second language in central and Eastern Europe. In the English-speaking world, German is also the third most taught foreign language.

German education has an excellent international reputation and their colleges are very attractive to students from all over the world. All major educational and research locations around the world are trying to attract as many well-qualified young people as possible. The number of international students studying at various German Higher Education Institutions is just under 13% of the total university enrollment in Germany’s universities in 2016/2017 and this figure continues to grow. The combination of Germany’s high quality education with near-zero or zero tuition fees makes Germany a very attractive destination for international students as a study destination. This highlights how well Germany is positioned in the race to attract top international students.

SSTC Institute’s German as a Foreign Language Course aims to prepare students who are interested to learn the German Language particularly for the purpose of continuing their education in a German higher education institution.
