Germanic Language Resources

Bayreuths-PartnerstädteGerman is one of the world’s most widely spoken languages and it is the third most-taught language in world. It’s spoken differently in different regions — meaning that “standard German” actually has several versions! It has two dialects, Low German and High German, derived from Old High German, which in turn originated from Old Saxon, the language spoken in Denmark by the Saxon people on the west coast of Germany. In 1800, standard German went from a mostly-written language to a more commonly-spoken language as the regional dialects began to die out. After that, standard German became the national language spoken by everyone.
