German in Birmingham

German is the primary language of Germany and an official language in Austria, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg and Switzerland. With over 200 million speakers worldwide, it can be heard anywhere in the world, and Birmingham is no exception. According to the UK’s 2011 census, Birmingham is the second-most populated city in England, right behind London, with over two million residents, and 3,000 of them are German speakers. There are numerous career and job opportunities for those who speak the language, not to mention advantages for social and cultural purposes. Order your drink in German at Oktoberfest and connect with the local community of German speakers on a whole new level. Take the plunge and start learning German with us at Language Trainers!

In these uncertain times, it can be hard or scary to continue traditional face-to-face language lessons. But don’t worry: at Language Trainers, we offer online classes to suit your needs and schedule! Reach out to us to know more about German classes.

Why Study German in Birmingham

Learn German for Culture: Studying German in Birmingham will give you the knowledge and resources that you need to soak up the German language and culture for yourself, whether that’s through a trip to Germany or by staying here in town. Over the past couple of decades, for example, Birmingham has been home to the Frankfurt Christmas Market, an outdoor market that attracts more than five million visitors each year. With crowds drawing from all over the world, why wouldn’t you want to learn German in Birmingham and put it to test at this festive time of year? Aside from the Frankfurt Christmas Market, Birmingham also celebrates Oktoberfest! Put on your lederhosen and enjoy a variety of deliciously cold beers, German food, live music and an abundance of games and themed activities! Sing along to the German polka music using the flawless pronunciation you learn with us at Language Trainers.

Learn German for Work: Learning German in the city will also help you to advance your career and get a better job. According to a 2020 report by the University of Birmingham, the United Kingdom has been a crucial asset to Germany’s trading in the car and energy industry. Also, the West Midlands remains the leading UK region for attracting Foreign Direct Investment, and Germany was ranked as the second-highest source of investment in Birmingham, according to figures from the Department for International Trade. So, the city has attracted a number of leading companies over the last decade, such as Boehringer Ingelheim Ltd and Kaercher, who are always looking for fluent German speakers to add to their teams. So, taking a language course will certainly help you stand out if you apply for a job at one of these companies!

Learn German for Social: If you are looking to make new friends who also love the German language and culture, you can join the InterNations group for Germans in Birmingham. This language exchange group aims at bringing together German expats living in the city, but they also welcome everyone who would like to learn the language and get recommendations as to where to eat roast pork with knödel. Another option is the Birmingham German Group, though all the participants must have at least an intermediate level of German to be able to participate in their conversations. Get ready for these gatherings with us at Language Trainers and feel at ease putting your language skills to use! These meetings are usually held at German-themed restaurants, such as Herman ze German on Grand Central Street or Franzls on Milcote Road. In both places, you can order tasty German beer, brawts and Bavarian pretzels using the German pronunciation you learn in your language course!
