German in Vancouver
Why learn German in Vancouver? Today, Vancouver finds itself in a unique position as a bridge between the East and West after Canada recently signed free trade agreements with both the EU and several nations across the Pacific. Amid these trade partners in the EU, Germany has the largest economy and stands at the forefront of international trade, education, arts and sciences. Learning German and signing up for German courses in Vancouver is a fantastic way to gain a competitive edge in a global economy.
Throughout Vancouver’s history, German immigrants have played a significant role. They were among the first groups of European settlers who came in the 1800s as shopkeepers and artisans. Through the years, their language and culture have shaped the development of life in Vancouver. Even today, 150 years later, there are still almost 25,000 native German speakers who live in the city and German-Canadians continue to make up the fourth-largest European minority.
Nowadays, ties between Vancouver and German-speaking countries are stronger than ever. For example, on a daily basis, Lufthansa and Air Canada fly direct from Vancouver to both Munich and Frankfurt in Germany as well as Zurich in Switzerland. In honour of its cultural heritage, Vancouver also actively plays host to several German cultural events each year including the annual Vancouver Christmas Market, or christkindlmarkt, which takes place every December and Harvet Haus’s Oktoberfest, which in 2017 brought together more than 1 million people over the course of the 9-day event. German also remains an important staple in Vancouver’s international arts scene: the Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF) which runs for two weeks every September showcasing over 350 films was attended by over 130,000 people in 2017 and featured 32 German language films! Learning German and taking up German lessons in Vancouver provides insight to the city’s past, preserves its heritage and helps secure Vancouver's place as an international business hub.
