German Dual Language Immersion

Why German?

  • German is one of the three official languages of the European Union, and two of the UN’s headquarters are located in German-speaking countries.
  • Germany and China trade places with each other for the greatest share in travel, tourism and trade.
  • At a 2009 business and language summit, Utah companies listed German as one of the top five languages for Utah business and industry.
  • A wide variety of languages is vital for educating global citizens in Utah. Each language and culture has something unique to offer, and expands students’ opportunities for understanding different perspectives. 
  • Germany is a world leader in green technologies, alternative energy and pharmaceuticals. These industries will grow considerably during the working lives of our current students.
  • Over 3000 German companies, and some of the most successful ones, are also located in the U.S. For example, Adidas, Siemens, T-Mobile, Trader Joe’s and Volkswagen all originate in Germany.
  • Knowledge of German benefits students in any university discipline and particularly enhances understanding of engineering math, science, history, literature and the arts.
