Learn to speak German with the help of a native speaker

As an educated person, you surely know that English is a Germanic language. In itself, that nugget of knowledge is abstract and of little import or use. What we need is concrete links to the language of our forebears; something we can decisively point to and say "Aha! See? This is why learning German is a good idea!"

Consider all of the words we use that start with a silent 'K'; knee, knife and knowledge among them. They all have their roots in ancient Germanic tongues. And words like 'hair', 'nose' and 'finger' - but with a slight pronunciation difference, those are still used in German today. As is knee, by the way.

Studying German is essential to gaining a deeper understanding and appreciation of our mother tongue.

German poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe underscored that point when he said: "He who knows no foreign language knows nothing of his own.". A valuable truism, to be sure, but quite to the point regarding English speakers studying German.

Besides becoming intimately familiar with your native language, learning German offers substantial benefits.

Germany is home to Europe's largest economy. It is a leader in technical innovation and a champion of democracy and human rights. Thus, it makes sense that German ranks among the Top 10 languages studied worldwide. For economic reasons alone, learning German makes sense.

But there's also the fact that German is spoken in Belgium and Luxembourg, Austria, Switzerland and Lichtenstein, albeit with varying degrees of dialect thrown in. As a German speaker, you can even make yourself understood in Denmark and the Netherlands, and Poland and Romania have large German-speaking enclaves as well.

Learning German doesn't only give you access to Germany and native German speakers but to a substantial portion of the world. And we haven't said anything about the millions of people who speak German as a second language! Wouldn't it be great to count yourself among their numbers?

Reasons to Learn German in Sheffield

In case all of the aforementioned points haven't yet turned you on to the idea of learning German, perhaps knowing that Sheffield enjoys a special connection with Germany could entice you.

Have you ever travelled Bochum Parkway? It's named after Sheffield's German sister city.

Bochum lies in western Germany; it is the sixth-largest city in the North Rhine-Westphalia region. Bochum is famous for its academic culture; the city is home to no fewer than nine universities, with the illustrious Ruhr University Bochum among their number.

Students of all ages - those learning German ahead of their GCSE German and/or A-Level German exams, as well as university students, may envision a year studying in Germany at that venerable institution, or they may decide on a course at Bochum's University of Applied Sciences.

If you were to relocate as a family for better job prospects, taking group German lessons would be a fantastic idea. After all, there are no fewer than 12 Fortune 500 companies in the Bochum area; who says you can't live and work in Germany?

However, if you would rather stay in the UK, you can find jobs in customer service and sales that specify German as a hiring criterion.
