About German

German is a West Germanic language and is spoken natively by about 100 million people, making it the most widely spoken native language in the European Union. A considerable number of German words have derived from Latin and Greek, with a few words also descending from French and English language. German is a pluricentric language, meaning multiple countries have their own standardised variants of the language including, Austrian German and Swiss Standard German. German is spoken as a second language by approximately 80 million people and is the most commonly spoken language in some states of America after English. German language has the same alphabet as English language except for an additional letter which is “ß” this letter is a consonant which is used as a double-S (SS) sound and is called an “eszett” or “sharp S”. German language had the opportunity to be the native language of the United States, but English was chosen over German by only one vote. German language has some very similar words to English language, for example, their translation of jogging is joggen.

About Peterborough

Peterborough is a cathedral city and unitary authority area in the East of England, with an estimated population of 164,000 in June 2007. For ceremonial purposes it is in the county of Cambridgeshire. Situated 75 miles (121 km) north of London, the city stands athwart the River Nene, which flows into the North Sea approximately 30 miles (48 km) to the north-east. The railway station is an important stop on the East Coast Main Line railway. The local topography is flat and low-lying, and in some places lies below sea level. The area known as the Fens falls to the east of Peterborough. The City of Peterborough includes the outlying military installation of RAF Wittering, and as a unitary authority it borders Northamptonshire and Rutland to the west, Lincolnshire to the north, and Cambridgeshire to the south and east. Human settlement in the area dates back to before the Bronze Age, as can be seen at the Flag Fen archaeological site to the east of the current city centre. This site also shows evidence of Roman occupation. The Anglo-Saxon period saw the establishment of a monastery, then known as Medeshamstede, which later became Peterborough Cathedral. The population grew rapidly following the arrival of the railways in the nineteenth century, and Peterborough became an industrial centre, particularly noted for its brick manufacture. Following the Second World War, growth was limited until designation as a New Town in the 1960s.

Assess Your German Level

The table below is based on recognised language levels used by various academic institutions across the European Union. A highly motivated student attending weekly sessions with their German language trainer in Peterborough can expect to move from one level to another after 50 hours providing they also commit to a similar number of hours of self-study.

Of course, some people find learning languages easier than others, and some students will have more opportunities to practice German in the course of their work and leisure, so these factors also need to be considered when trying to assess how long it will take to move from one level to another.
