There are more reasons than one to invest the time in learning a new language, but why German? Learning a language allows you more access to a culture, and the German-speaking countries have much to offer! If you are interested in history, philosophy, psychology, art, music, architecture or any of the sciences, you are well aware that German, Austrian, and Swiss people have played a pivotal role in the development of your field.
Our modern world and Western history has been shaped by Germany, and it is the language of important thinkers like Hannah Arendt, Sigmund Freud, Albert Einstein, Bertolt Brecht, and Friedrich Nietzsche. Germany – the economic engine of the EU – is also an important business language.
At Trent we offer introductory language classes, focusing on communication, reading, writing, and translation skills in German.
