About the German language

German is spoken as a native language by around 105 million people. About a further 80 million people speak it as a second or foreign language. The standard language is called Hochdeutsch and this is the language taught in schools. But there are also many regional variants, especially in Southern Germany, Austria and Switzerland. German has considerable importance within the EU not only because of the number of speakers it has, but also because it is, along with French and English, one of the three procedural languages of the European Commission.
