Blog - more than half a milion people study German from the comfort of their homes

Have you ever thought of learning the German language? It seems like a good idea to do so, as according to the Eurostat, German is the second most known language in the European Union. More than 100 millions of people speak German as native speakers and around 20 millions of them learn German as a foreign language. This article will inform you how to learn the language from the comfort of your home.

Let us introduce you to the innovative portal, which includes a language course divided into four levels A1, A2, B1 B2 and is intended for both beginners and advanced learners interested in learning this Germanic language. Among other things, the portal also offers practical information on living and working in Germany and Austria. It is certainly suitable for people looking for a job abroad, working abroad, as well as for students, tourists and residents of border regions with Germany and Austria. Currently the site has 19 language versions, more than 562,300 registered users from around the world and was awarded the "Educational Site of the Year" award in Germany.

Organizations from Germany and Austria were involved in the creation of the portal and cooperate with colleagues from Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Croatia, Lithuania and Russia. In addition to their expertise, these experienced partners from different countries and areas of activity have also brought a strong intercultural charge to the project. Each of the partners edited the teaching materials for their country and ensured the promotion and results dissemination of the project.

"People know that learning German can be a huge advantage for them early in their careers," explains Anne Pritchard-Smith, director of the Österreich Institute, one of the eight organizations involved in the project.  The e-learning portal addresses those who want to succeed in their home country, in one of the German-speaking countries, or want to keep the both paths open.

If you are interested in this project, you can also look at other “language” projects of the NGO Education@Internet. We would like to inform you about the biggest Polyglot Gathering meeting that will take place in May in Poland.
