Why Teach English in Germany? English is an international language that is spoken in almost all countries. In fact, English is classified as one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. This language enhances global communication and diplomacy among peoples in the world. Because of its widespread applicability, learning English can open up countless opportunities for non-native speakers. For instance, English fluency is a prerequisite to apply to many jobs. In addition, many university courses around the world are taught in English such as science, medicine, engineering, economics, business administration, and other educational areas. Many prestigious German universities teach select undergraduate programs in English.
Many Germans are eager to learn English. Germany began to realize the importance of learning languages other than German, especially English, and adopted an education system that facilitates English learning. Most Germans learn English as their first foreign language at school.
