The German-speaking world has been home to Mozart and Bach, Nietzsche and Heidegger, Klimt and Klee, Einstein and Bohr. Germany today is the strongest economy in Europe, has one of the fastest growing independent art scenes (in Berlin), and is a worldwide research leader in fields from renewable energy to nanotechnology.
German is a language that is excellent preparation for traveling in Europe, as almost 40% of European citizens say they can converse in German. Last but not least, German is the most commonly used language on the internet after English. If you’d like to learn more about German at Montclair State, please contact Thomas Herold.
