Did you know that English and German share many words? In some cases they’re almost the same with slightly different spelling while others include accents and punctuation appropriate for that language (e.g. ‘Bär’ in German means ‘bear’ in English). There are some everyday German words that have English origins, including simple things such as ‘babysitten’ meaning to baby sit and ‘joggen’ for jogging.
On the other hand, you’ll see very common German loan words used in English; some not so obvious ones include muesli, hamster and rucksack. Many well-known names relating to alcohol (e.g. Pilsner and Riesling) and food (e.g. Schnitzel and Strudel) are also regularly used.

Germany is one of Europe biggest markets, rich in culture and history. It’s also one of the most important trading partners for the UK and with cities like Berlin becoming a popular destination for British ex-pats, being able to speak the language is a distinct advantage. It’s also spoken in Switzerland, Austria and Lichtenstein and is a common second language in many countries across Eastern Europe.
