German in Cambridge
German, the native tongue of around 100 million people, rivals English as an important language to know for a career in European administration, law, business or tourism. The ties between Britain and Germany have been close for many years. The two nations are linked by strong bonds of culture and friendship. Throughout the 19th century, a small population of German immigrants built up in Britain, and 500 of them settled in Cambridge. Today, more than 1,800 people of German origin live in the city. So, learning German can help you not only to connect with Germans at home and abroad, but also to explore cultural and professional opportunities available to bilingual speakers around the city.
Why Study German in Cambridge
For Work and Studies: Learn German in Cambridge and broaden your professional horizons. With the advance of globalisation, many local companies, like Origin Multilingual, Aspire Cambridge and SoCode, are looking to expand into overseas markets, including Germany. So, they need bilingual speakers who can enable them to work with new and existing partners overseas. Start learning German and give your career a boost! Meanwhile, if you are more interested in studying at the world-famous Cambridge University, German language courses at available at both graduate and undergraduate levels. You will not only learn the language but also about the culture, traditions, arts and literature of German-speaking peoples. This course requires prospective students to demonstrate some proficiency of German beforehand, so reach out to us at Language Trainers and ask about our Exam Preparation course for help readying yourself for this fantastic opportunity!
For Culture: As well as a hub of professional and academic opportunity Cambridge is a superb location to experience the culture of the German-speaking people that inhabit the city. For instance, if you are a cinema lover, you should not miss the Cambridge Film Festival, which has been organised since 1977 on an annual basis. The festival shows a range of British and international films that debuted at other leading film festivals, including the Cannes Film Festival and Berlin Film Festival. Every year, at least 10 German and Austrian movies are screened to the public in their original language at this event. Forget about needing the English subtitles and enjoy these films in German after taking some lessons with us at Language Trainers! Also, for those interested in religion, architecture or history, we recommend visiting the German-Speaking Lutheran Church in East England on Shaftesbury Road. This is an open religious community that carries out guided tours in German inside their institution. Get to know more about their history and traditions while practising your new language skills in the real world!
For Social: Cambridge is also a fantastic location to use your new German skills to make new friends with a similar passion for the language by joining groups, like the InterNations - A Place for Germans in Cambridge. This language exchange group welcomes any person (regardless of their age or German level) who would like to put their language skills to the test. Another option is to join the Cambridge German Meetup. Whether you are a native speaker, fluent in German, learned the language a long time ago or are studying it now, you are very welcome to attend their monthly meetings!
