The German language – characteristics and spread

Separated into High German and Low German after the second sound shift, German and its many dialects belong to the western branch of the Germanic languages.

The standard dialect formed from High German dialects (Standard German, also known as High German or Written German, but usually referred to simply as German) is considered a world language. German is one of twenty-three official languages in the European Union, and is one of the EU’s working languages alongside English and French. The number of German native speakers around the world amounts to approximately a hundred million.

German is the most frequently used second language in Europe after English and Russian, and especially in the Netherlands, Flanders, Scandinavia, Russia, the Baltic States, Slovenia, Croatia, Poland, Bosnia and Herzegovina, in the French and Italian-speaking parts of Switzerland, and in Serbia, Montenegro, Hungary, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Macedonia, Belarus, and Bulgaria. German is the first foreign language learned at school in some of these countries and regions – even before English. The teaching and learning materials cover High German from Switzerland, Austria, and Germany.
