German

German is the most widely spoken native language in Europe. It is the second most important language in central and Eastern Europe. In the English-speaking world, German is also the third most taught foreign language.

German and English share the same Germanic roots, so if you’re an English speaker, you’re already quite advantaged. German Language also has a very strong foothold in the academic community as it ranks second as most commonly used scientific language.

German is the gateway to world class higher education, that also almost free of cost. This also gives you access to the world’s fourth largest economy, as it is home to a large number of economic players like Siemens, Volkswagen, Adidas, and Lufthansa`11.

The City School has partnered with Goethe Institute to offer internationally recognised Goethe-Zertifikat exams.
