If you talk to a man in a language that he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.

Did You Know?

  • Graduates holding the German Abitur can apply to colleges and universities in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, where tuition is usually free. That can translate into a tuition savings of $100,000 or more.
  • Admissions directors at American colleges and universities regard graduates holding the German International Abitur as bright and prepared. Some students even receive college credit for their courses towards earning the German International Abitur.

500,000 Americans can speak German fluently, far fewer than those who speak Spanish or French. This makes it easier for German speakers to stand out from the crowd!

German speakers are unique and in demand.

  • A Harvard research study discovered that German speakers in the United States earn, on average, $128,000 more over their professional lifetimes than workers whose second language is French or Spanish. The uniqueness of fluent German/English speakers is likely to thank for this.
  • In the United States, German companies employ more than 800,000 people, and that number grows every year.
  • Germany is Europe's economic powerhouse and the world's 4th largest economy. Nine of the world's 50 largest companies are German, including recognizable names like Adidas, Bayer, BMW, Lufthansa, Siemens and Volkswagen.
  • Germany is fast becoming a center of computing, biotechnology, and alternative energy and needs bilingual employees to fuel its global growth.
