German – A Language Learned all over the World, but Firmly Rooted in Europe

German is the second foreign language in the European Union (EU) and when it comes to the 90 million people whose mother tongue is German, it is actually in first place. It is also officially recognised as a minority language in eight countries Does this then mean we should not worry about the status of the German language in Europe? The answer unfortunately is - yes, we should be concerned, as the German language plays only a minor role in the institutions of the EU.
