German in Toronto

Why learn German in Toronto? – Toronto is the most linguistically diverse city in Canada and is considered one of the most diverse cities in the world. There are more than 200 languages spoken in Toronto, and according to the 2016 Census, about 25% of Torontonians speak a language at home that is neither French or English. German is one of those languages. There are 29,425 German speakers living in Toronto, making up around 22% of Canada's total German-speaking population. Signing up for German lessons in Toronto is a gateway to learning an important European language and culture, as well as learning more about the German-speaking people in our community.

Canada and Germany share many common interests and values, and collaborate on important subjects like culture, science, economics, and politics. Each are valued members of NATO, the G7, and other committees. Germany is also Canada's second largest EU destination for merchandise exports. Taking German classes in Toronto may be an important tool for future employment in any one of these fields.

Organizations under the umbrella of the So German website organise German events throughout Toronto all year round. One such place is the Goethe-Institut. Situated in the centre of Toronto, this is a meeting point for anyone interested in the German language as well as contemporary German art and culture. For those of us wanting to immerse ourselves in German, there is plenty more on offer. The tradition of Oktoberfest which started in Munich over 200 years ago is celebrated every September in Toronto's Ontario Place, giving you the chance to sample authentic German beers and food. And what Christmas preparations would be complete without a visit to the Christkindl Market in the Kitchener City Hall?

In 2017, 93,000 of Toronto's 44 million tourists were from Germany, with tourism spending hitting around the $8,840 million mark. Perhaps Germans visiting our city are not necessarily looking for a home away from home. But from grocery stores to restaurants, there is something for those who might feel a little homesick, as well as those of us wanting to sample a little German culture and cuisine.  

Whatever your needs for learning, we have German courses in Toronto that are suitable for you. We have native German teachers that will accommodate your every language need, whether you want face-to-face learning or prefer to study online.
