German is a small but growing language at NAS Dubai. We run a popular advanced German programme, alongside a second language programme from Early Years through to IB. Our advanced programme is further enriched by the CCAs we offer which include in-house specialised programmes delivered by the Goethe Institut.
Germany, Austria and Switzerland have a rich heritage with literature, music, architecture and a history that captivate young people’s minds, all of which is celebrated in the classroom, on our annual German language day celebrations and further afield through local trips and international visits.
With 120 million native speakers, German is Europe’s most widely spoken mother tongue. It is a language which can open doors for young people, both personally and professionally. The opportunity to learn German therefore presents numerous travel and career opportunities. German is a language of business, engineering and science; indeed, many large German companies are present here in the Middle East.
