Video: Overview of the German Language (Deutsch)

German language overview video

The lowdown on German

In this video, Paul gives a great overview of German including:

  • its history
  • where it is spoken (global distribution)
  • background on the writing system
  • what other languages have influenced it
  • what regional German varieties exist
  • very much more

Paul includes example samples of the German language to illustrate the main points of how the language works - super helpful for folks just getting started and interesting in general for language geeks like me.

Words from the videographer

This video is a language profile on the German language, one of Europe's most important and influential languages.

German speakers

There are approximately 76 million speakers of German as a first language. Roughly 56 million people speak it as a second, third or fourth language.

This would make a grand total of some 132 million German speakers.
