Across the world 15.4 million people currently study German as a foreign language.

One of the tasks of the Federal Foreign Office, alongside diplomacy, is to drive Germany’s international cultural and education policy. A large part of this involves promoting the German language all over the world. Currently 15.4 million people study German as a foreign language. German is the most widely spoken mother tongue in the European Union. The task of language education is carried out, for ex­ample, by the Goethe Institutes, but also by 140 German schools abroad and almost 2,000 other schools that offer intensive German tuition. These are linked by the Schools: Partners for the Future initiative, or PASCH for short.
