German Language Day
This event is known as the “Tag der deutschen Sprache” in German. German Language Day is an opportunity to learn more about the culture and language of this European Country.
The German Language or “Deutsch”, was believed to have originated more than 2,000 years ago. There are records that show that Roman Empire citizens may have encountered German speakers in the first century.
German is now the most commonly spoken or co-official language in many European countries, including Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The English and German languages share a lot of vocabulary because they have similar roots. They are 60% alike lexically.
German Language Day was started by the German Language Association. It has been supported by the United Nations General Assembly and Conference since then. This day’s purpose is to simply encourage people to appreciate the beauty and diversity of the German language, as well as the many cultures that have adopted it.
You can enjoy the German Language Day celebrations by being creative and paying attention to it in fun ways. These ideas are just a few of the many creative ways you can get involved.
German Language Day is a great way to motivate those who want to learn a foreign language. It is now easier than ever to learn a language thanks to technology. Online courses, smartphone apps, and live lessons with a person from another part of the globe make learning German Language easier than ever.
If you don’t have the time or desire to learn German, it is possible to appreciate a translation of a book written by a German author. You can also watch a movie that has English subtitles but was originally made in German. This is a less commitment. In celebration of German Language Day, enjoy the unique sound and culture of the language.
