Germany is a trade powerhouse, so its language will be more economically valuable for an outsider than the language of a relatively more closed economy.

German stands out as the language for a strong career.

Over the span of an average career, being able to speak German has been shown to yield 60% more income than French.


Germany has been repeatedly recognized as the world's most innovative economy.

Innovation translates into opportunity.
