German in Edmonton
Why learn German in Edmonton? Edmonton, the “Oil Capital of Canada”, has been an economic hub of Alberta since the city’s foundation. Boasting a 30% increase in exports in 2017, Alberta has been enjoying great financial prosperity in recent years and given its flourishing economy, it is attracting new, international business prospects to the region. With Canada’s newly established free trade agreement with the European Union in force since 2017, now more than ever it is important to learn another language. And since it is the most widely spoken language in the EU, there’s no better time to learn German in order to fully appreciate the opportunities offered by the German-speaking market in Edmonton and throughout Canada.
Considered one of the most influential languages within the business world, German is the first language of 100 million speakers worldwide. According to Canada’s most recent census in 2016, there are over 400,000 Canadian citizens who declared German to be their native language. In a society where over 60% of Canadian citizens believe knowing multiple languages is essential to success, learning a second or third European language in Canada will extend your horizons far wider than your competitors. Taking German courses in Edmonton will give you the freedom to explore all the potential that Edmonton’s diverse economy offers, taking your career outside of Canada and projecting it towards a larger, international scope.
With Edmonton renowned as Canada’s “Festival City”, the German population is vital in upholding that reputation and shaping the city’s cultural identity. The German Canadian Cultural Association in Edmonton commemorates the coming together of German and Canadian culture by hosting many traditional German festivals throughout the year. The Edmonton Oktoberfest is a popular event which celebrates the true spirit of the beer festival with its Canadian citizens. The International Fringe Theatre Festival, the largest, longest-running fringe festival in North America, is also a global stage for artists and entertainers from around the world and brought in thousands of attendees in 2017. Taking German lessons in Edmonton is a wonderful way of embracing the multiculturalism fundamental to the Canadian identity, allowing you to connect and interact with others in your community on a whole new level.
In an increasingly influential city such as Edmonton, competition will be fierce. In 2016 according to Statcan, 6.2 million Canadians declared themselves to be bilingual, a significant increase from the 5.8 million figure reported back in 2011. As multilingualism becomes ever more prevalent in Edmonton and throughout Canada, languages will become a necessary asset both within your professional and personal life and signing up to German classes in Edmonton is an ideal way of enhancing your future prospects. Our native-speaking teachers will guide you to fluency with tailor-made lessons personalized to your schedules and needs.
