The Elementary Certificate in German provides students with professional knowledge of the German language and culture. German is the most widely-spoken mother tongue in the European Union, and 1,200 German-owned companies operate in the United States. 750+ major U.S. businesses have branches in Germany, the highest ranking European country for Oregon exports. The certificate gives a significant added value to candidates looking for jobs in a wide array of careers, as there is high demand for bilingual professionals in education, science, business, law, foreign service, and medical fields.
