Just keep an open mind, learning German is not as hard as everyone says it is!
1. Knowing German is a big plus!
Nowadays it is not enough to speak “only” English since everyone is expected to be fluent in it, while the ability to speak another foreign language like German is highly desirable!

Germany is one of the most developed countries in Europe and the world, and its economy is the third largest worldwide, just behind the USA and Japan.
5. Major German companies have their subsidiaries located across Europe and worldwide! (In Croatia, as well!)
The number of German companies operating in Croatia is constantly growing, and if you have good German language skills, you can find attractive workplaces in our country. Furthermore, increasing number of employers require at least a basic knowledge of German.
6. German is spoken beyond European borders!
Over 100 million people worldwide speak German, and almost 20 million learn it. German is the language with the largest number of speakers in the European Union and is the second most taught foreign language.
7. Are you familiar with the expression “German quality”?
The quality of German products really is top-notch – whether we are talking about cars, sports equipment, technology, furniture, home appliances or food.
8. German language is a part of our rich historical and cultural heritage!
Being a part of the German-speaking area of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy for many centuries has left a significant trace in Croatia – for example, many of our important historical documents are written in German.
9. Do you know that you are already using many German words and expressions?
How many German loanwords do you use daily in informal communication? And how familiar are you with the standard Croatian words that these German loanwords replace in everyday speech?
