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 obtain the  internationally recognized Deutsches Sprachdiplom (DSD) language proficiency certificate, and earn bursaries toward their post secondary studies.

German is also a leading language in the global fields of science, engineering, business, philosophy, and music.

Plus, learning German is über cool!
