    German is the official language in Germany. Unlike most countries where English is the official language, Germany retains its indigenous language as the major means of communication. You are probably reading this because you are from a non-German speaking country, and you just moved to Germany, or you are curious about the language spoken in Germany and how to acquire it.

    Studies show that German is spoken by 95% of the population in Germany. It is the language of trade, education, business and formalities. To navigate Germany, you need to learn at least the basics of the language for a start before you settle fully.

    While it may seem difficult to acquire a new language as an adult, when compared to acquiring as a child, it is not impossible. Fortunately, there are Language Schools, and online courses, and apps, you can use to learn German.

    The fastest way to learn German is by registering in a Language school. If you are in Germany, this is the best option for you to choose to get a good grasp of the language in no distant time. Below is a list of prestigious German Language Schools you can visit:

    To learn German in these institutions, you have to pay a fee and be ready to meet up the requirements.

    If you are not inclined to learning in a physical classroom, or you are not in Germany, you can learn German online! Below are great sites where you can register and learn German. Some sites are free, while others require a fee. The free sites, as expected, do not require commitment from you, but the sites that charge, require some level of commitment because it is like a school, and should be taken seriously. Moreover, you do not want to spend your money and be nonchalant about learning.

    If you are looking to learn, you need to be dedicated and committed, that is the best way to learn real quick. Try making conversations with people using German as practice. The best way to learning a language is practicing it.

    Learning German is essential to live in Germany. Although one can survive without the language, like many people that I know, a good command of the language comes with many benefits.
    My dear friend, @Wohks can testify to that Innocent.
    Great content @deborahetim ; do you speak German yourself?
