German is the official language of four European countries: Germany, Austria as well as being one of the three official languages of Switzerland and also Belgium. More than 100 million people speak it worldwide, and it is the most widely spoken language in Europe if we do not take into account Russian in the whole of Eurasia…
German ranks the sixth most popular language in the world, the first one being Chinese, then English, Hindi-Urdu, Spanish, and Russian. German is an interesting language due to the dominance of dialects, which emerged due to the fact there was no cultural center, like Paris in France. By the end of the middle ages, attempts were made to create a “Standard German language”, so that the several independent regions could communicate more easily with each other. Let us not forget that Germany did not exist as a political entity until the 19th century. A major influence on the standardization of German was Martin Luther’s Bible translation into German in 1522 from the original Hebrew. The translation from Hebrew aimed at an “East Middle German”. That “style” was largely based on the language used at the Saxon court. This became the basis of what we know as German today. As the last issue, briefly, I explain to you the format of German language testes. These tests are managed by Goethe institute all around the word.
The framework specifies different ability levels for every language and is roughly divided as follows: A for beginners, B for intermediate levels, and C for advanced levels.
Each level group (A-B-C) is then divided into two levels: A1+A2, B1+B2, and C1+C2 resulting in a total of 6 language levels. In short, the FSI estimated that learning German will take approximately 30 weeks (750 hours) for English speakers. This may seem like a lot of time, but it’s a fraction compared to languages like Chinese, Japanese, and Arabic, which took students up to 88 weeks to learn.
