German Language 

With an estimated 95 million native speakers, German is one of the world's major languages. There are also approximately 500,000 German native speakers in Canada, and the Fraser Valley is home to many families who have immigrated from Germany. Competency in this powerful language will give you access to the biggest economy in the European Union, and profound insight into a vibrant and rich culture.
