Germany is the fourth largest national economy worldwide and the largest in the European Union. If you’re looking for employment, knowing German can give you great advantages in the United States and abroad. Knowing more than one language enhances employment opportunities in government, business, law, medicine and health care, teaching, technology, communications, social service, and marketing. German is THE language which opens up major markets and gives you the edge in competition. It is in demand not only for German-speaking firms abroad and foreign firms in Germany, but also for companies enjoying close economic ties to German-speaking countries.
