Around the Web – Speaking German can get you the job

07 March 2012

“Spaniards, Portuguese and others from countries hit hard by the debt crisis are flocking to learn German in hopes of getting jobs in Europe's biggest and strongest economy,” according to an article published by the online platform Mysask.com.

Figures from Germany's culture and language promotion organisation, the Goethe Institute, confirm this trend as it is particularly people from Southern Europe who are keen to master the German language.

Many firms in Germany are on the lookout to hire skilled staff, but a language barrier often obstructs the hiring process as German employers are said to be rather demanding when it comes to German language skills.  

The article makes out a general trend in Europe that more and more Southern Europeans are prepared to leave their troubled home countries in the hope of finding jobs in states, such as Germany, where the economy is still going strong.
