Learn How to Speak German in Dublin

Get Started and Learn German

German is one of the most spoken languages in the world, with more than 220 million speakers, almost 30,000 of whom live in Ireland. According to the 2012 census, 75% of this population reside in Dublin. This community of Austrians and Germans have shaped many cultural aspects of the city, from watching German movies to attending the annual Oktoberfest, all without ever leaving Dublin. Sign up for a course today with us at Language Trainers and take advantage of the many opportunities available to German speakers in Dublin. We specialise in designing tailor-made courses, so you can study at your convenience, no matter how busy your schedule!

Why Study German in Dublin

Learn German for Work: Those looking for a new job around Dublin will find German to be an asset. If you would like to connect with businesses from Germany, Austria or Switzerland, you can get in touch with the German Chamber of Commerce on Fitzwilliam Street. This institution offers its experience, connections and services to German companies who would like to establish their business in Dublin and to Irish businesses who want to do the same in Germany. And as globalisation continues to encourage international connections, many Irish companies are expanding to overseas markets and need bilingual employees to communicate with their new clients. Some businesses in Dublin that are always hiring German speakers are Bentley Systems International, SiteMinder and Eden Recruitment. Give your career a boost and sign up for a German course with Language Trainers today!

Learn German for Culture: Work aside, you can also experience the lively German and Austrian cultures around Dublin. For example, the Goethe Institut on Merrion Square tries to keep these cultures alive by organising different events and workshops, often delivered by artists, specialists and architects who come all the way from Germany. In 2019, for instance, this institution hosted German singer Agnes Bernelle and architect Richard Cassels, who has designed many landmark buildings in Dublin. Ensure you can understand as much as possible by studying German with us! Meanwhile, if you are into cinema, you will be happy to know you can attend weekly screenings of German movies, such as “Goodbye, Lenin”, shown in their original language. And if you are a literature lover, you can find many resources and books to read in German at the Terenure Library on Templeogue Road. You will soon be reading German classics after taking a reasonable amount of lessons with us!

Learn German for Social: Those looking to use their German skills to socialise will find many instances for doing so around Dublin. If you wish to meet German expats, for example, you can join the InterNations space for Germans in Dublin, a group created with the aim of sharing recommendations of where to experience the German culture around the city and to practise speaking in German. Another option is the Dublin German Speakers, a friendly language exchange group that welcomes anyone who would like to attend their meetups and put their German into practice. Some of their meetings are held at cafes and restaurants that serve German traditional food, such as Sweet Churro on Crow Street and Insel on Lower Baggot Street. There, you can sample delicious strudel, bratwurst or raspeball. Their menus even have a section written entirely in German, which we are sure you will be able to read with the skills you learn in your language course.
