The Germans are fond of saying, “Deutsche Sprache, schwere Sprache,”(German language, difficult language), often with a hint of Schadenfreude in their voices. But allow me to let you in on a little secret: German isn’t that difficult. True, it’s got quite a reputation, perhaps best enshrined by more than a few unflattering Mark Twain quotes. And yes, it does present you with 16 different ways to say “the,” and sometimes it has little regard for sensible sentence structure. But at least it’s eminently predictable. English, on the other hand, is riddled with inconsistencies, some utterly non-sensical spelling, and a lot of bizarrely fragile tense forms, all of which can trip up even the most experienced learners.
1. Most widely spoken native language in Europe
German language (Deutsch) is the most widely spoken mother tongue in Europe. Germany is not the only country where it is spoken. It is the official language of Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Belgium, and Luxembourg. There are sizable German-speaking populations in North Italy (South Tyrol), Poland, Hungary, Denmark, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Namibia, Russia, Romania, the Czech Republic, and other parts of Europe.
