Due to economic crisis German as a foreign language is booming

German learners hoping for better opportunities, especially in the labor market
(PresseBox) (Berlin, ) Dead live longer. This old adage proves true for the German language as a result of the economic crisis. A few years ago German as a foreign language was a discontinued model, but today schools and teachers as well as e-learning courses are now faced with a rapidly growing demand. "The sales of our web-based audiovisual German language courses are booming" confirms Philip Gienandt, managing director of online language learning platform LinguaTV (http://www.LinguaTV.com), the positive trend.

This is primarily driven by the influx of people from the Euro-crisis states. In countries like Spain, Portugal and Italy, youth unemployment is at a record high. Especially well-educated, young people increasingly turn their home's back and looking for their chance to be abroad - and especially in Germany, where many jobs even stay vacant due to a lack of skilled workers. The numbers of schools such as the prestigious Goethe Institute show: in Spain alone 35 percent more people signed-in for German courses in the past year, in Portugal, it was 20 and 14 percent in Italy. "We also feel the growing demand especially from the Southern European countries. Since German teachers are missing and many schools are now overcrowded, our online courses provide a good alternative and ideal supplement for many people willing to learn German online," says Philip Gienandt.

With its language training service LinguaTV.com offers especially for German companies the opportunity to capitalize on the growing interest of European specialists in employment in Germany. "We see that more and more companies are seizing the opportunity to recruit skilled workers from other European countries. The development of their linguistic skills is an important step for a successful, operational integration. With the practical relevant language video courses "German as a Foreign Language" and "Business German" – available as online course and as mobile app – improving your German skills is possible for everybody, anytime and everywhere, virtually during operation, in an efficient and sustainable way, "said the e-learning expert.
