Why Learn German?

Research shows that learning a second language helps a child learn English, especially in the case of German, as both languages come from a common Germanic language and share many similarities in both vocabulary and grammar.

Learning German and English together provides a wider view and deeper sense of the world. It immediately doubles the range of songs, poetry, stories, films and websites that children can understand and learn from.

Students in Edmonton Public School’s German Bilingual Program have the opportunity to travel to Germany, obtain internationally recognized certificates in German proficiency, and earn bursaries toward their post secondary studies.

Most of all, German is cool and fun to learn!
