The German language is a West Germanic language spoken by about 100 million people, mostly in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Italy, and Liechtenstein. German is related to English, Dutch, Afrikaans, and to a lesser extent, the Scandinavian languages. Swiss German is actually quite different from Standard German and German speakers tend not to be able to understand it.

The new format of the German language lessons will be available soon. In the meantime, please visit German Tutorial to learn German online for free. Thanks to the audio recordings by native speaker Sabrina from Austria, you can listen to German pronunciation while you read the vocabulary words and sample sentences.
