The recorded history of Germanic languages begins with their speakers’ first contact with the Romans, in the 1st century BC. At that time and for several centuries thereafter, there was only a single “Germanic” language, with little more than minor dialect differences.
Only after about the 6th century AD can one speak of a “German” (i.e., High German) language. German is an inflected language with four cases for nouns, pronouns, and adjectives (nominative, accusative, genitive, dative), three genders (masculine, feminine, neuter), and strong and weak verbs.
Altogether German is the native language of more than 90 million speakers and thus probably ranks sixth in number of native speakers among the languages of the world (after Chinese, English, Hindi-Urdu, Spanish, and Russian). German is widely studied as a foreign language and is one of the main cultural languages of the Western world.
FEW good reasons to learn a new language
TO BE OR NOT TO BE (BILINGUAL)?
“Worthy of the “golden patience” trophy for good humor and creativity when facing student’s difficulties. Very competent in teaching, my teacher brings the beauty and the richness of the French language through historical and current themes (he is interested in everything!) Focused on the interest of the student and on activities that encourage to understand not only the rules of the language and the meaning of the words, but also the culture of which they are part. Learning the French language gave me a new perspective of the world and France.”
