International GCSE German

International GCSE German

Why Study German?

German is spoken by 120 million Europeans, including the UK’s closest trading partners. Outside Germany, it is also the first language of Austria, and an official language of Switzerland, the Italian South Tyrol and parts of Belgium. All this makes German a great language to have, for business or for pleasure.
