German is spoken (as an official language or as a second language) in Germany, Austria, Luxemburg, Switzerland, Belgium, Lichtenstein, Italy, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary and Denmark. One out of four European speaks German.

Germany has the strongest economy in the European Union and ranks three in the world, after the United States and Japan. It is the world leader in exports and imports but also is one of the most important countries in terms of science, literature, philosophy, then arts, and so much more. As far as the Internet is concerned, German is the second most used language, after English.
