German lessons in Brisbane
German is one of the most widely spoken languages on Earth. Worldwide, there are approximately 95 million people who speak German as their first language, and another 100 million people who speak it as a second language, according to Ethnologue in 2020. Many of these German speakers live in Australia, and over 100,000 residents were actually born in Germany. Brisbane, in particular, holds a population of more than 2,500 people who claim German as their first language. Most of them come from families of immigrants who came to Australia in the 20th century, escaping persecution in their home country and looking for new work opportunities. Learn German in Brisbane today to experience Oktoberfest like never before, access new professional and study opportunities and connect with native speakers on a whole new level.

Why Study German in Brisbane
For Work: Knowledge of German is an asset in numerous fields and will enhance your competitiveness in Brisbane’s job market. Germany is one of Australia’s biggest business partners and this shows in the number of companies that hire bilingual speakers in Brisbane, such as Exactal Technologies or Blendel. This means you can enhance your professional prospects in fields such as engineering, business, economics and information technology by learning German. And if you are a business owner who is thinking about expanding overseas, you can get in touch with the German Australian Business Association on Main Street to grow your professional network and learn everything you need to know to operate in Germany. Furthermore, the Association is connected to more than 1,000 professionals and companies in Brisbane and Australia, so it can help you grow your business very fast via providing important networking opportunities. Don’t hesitate to attend their many events and impress the attendees with your new German skills!
For Culture & Tourism: Start studying German in Brisbane and get familiar with the culture of German-speaking peoples without ever leaving your city. For example, you can enjoy free guided tours that show off places in the city related to the German culture, such as the German Club or the German Consulate. And you can enjoy the traditional Oktoberfest every September, where you can have a taste of delicious German beer and food with your friends. Every year, Brisbane showcases its educational, scientific, economic, political and cultural connections to Germany in cooperation with schools, universities, and other organisations related to German-speaking countries. And if your desire is to experience German culture first hand, as soon as the world returns to normal you can take a connecting flight and be in Austria, Germany or Liechtenstein in less than 24 hours!
For Social: Work and culture aside, you can also make new friends with a similar interest in German by joining groups such as the InterNations space for Germans in Brisbane. Even though this group was originally meant for immigrants of German origin living in the city, they now welcome anyone who wants to practise their language skills in a friendly environment. Another option is to join the Goald Coast Germans Meetup, a language exchange group for any Germans or language learners living in Brisbane who wish to connect with others with a similar interest in the language. Don’t be shy and take advantage of this opportunity to put your new language skills into play in a real-life environment!
