“The limits of my language mean the limits of my world.” – Ludwig Wittgenstein

Why German?

  • For mental development: German is a very precise language which often has multiple words for one single concept in other languages. Through learning German, students will start to think more precisely and develop a more sophisticated mind.
  • For cultural exposure: Germany is not only famous for its fancy castles and traditional food, but for its rich historical background as well.
  • For travel: Make the most of your travels not only in German-speaking countries, but in many other European countries where German is widely spoken, especially in Eastern Europe.
  • For studies: Most German universities offer free tertiary education. Faculties ranging from music and literature to chemistry and engineering have solid academic foundation.
  • For career: Many of the top international companies such as Adidas and Siemens are based in Germany or Switzerland.
