Some people might think about why to study a popular one? An important reason to learn?
Well. Think about Dutch (another West Germanic language and lingua franca in the Netherlands, Belgium, the Caribbean Islands, etc.).
Currently, there is no program in the Dutch language in India.
Not at any Indian university or private institute, as far as I am aware.
If you desire to learn Dutch, you have limited options for books, teachers, or even speakers.
It can rapidly become frustrating when you feel like your progress is stagnating for lack of enough resources.
German is the second most popular foreign language in India after French. One main reason is the “First Move advantage.”
It is because their government initiated to promote German in India several decades back.
The first “Max Mueller Bhavan” was inaugurated in Kolkata in 1957.
In fact, The first German lessons in India were imparted in Pune and Mumbai in 1914 (more than a century back).
Since it is the second most learned foreign language in India, you will find colossal study material or resources to acquire this fascinating language.
There are 100’s schools, colleges, universities, and language institutes, including Max Mueller Bhavan (affiliated with the German Embassy), which offers German classes in Delhi and other parts of India.

I have done BSc Zoology Hons from Delhi University, and I have also completed an advanced diploma from Delhi University. I would like to know what IT skills I can combine with my German skills to get a better job (having both IT and German work combination).
It is difficult to say as I do not have expertise in the IT field and don’t know which companies require specific IT skills and German.
Hello sir, I’m in last year of my graduation. I’m getting a bachelor’s degree in English honors from Delhi University. And I’ve also started learning German at the Goethe Institute (Max Mueller Bhavan). I’m currently at A1 level. So if you could please tell me what career opportunities I have ahead of me. I plan on learning German from the Goethe Institute only till the C2 level. So please guide me with the job, career opportunities I’ll probably have after I’m done.
There are two broad career paths. Either you aim for a specialized career in German or some jobs where your German skills will be a plus point. For the former, some choices are support at bpo, mnc, writing, teaching, export houses, working in a travel company, translation or interpretation either as a freelancer or for an agency or a company, etc. Of course, there are many more positions too, but they might ask for requirements beyond German. I have written several articles on that that cover various job prospects.
Since your mainstream is another language (Bachelors in English), study German and work hard to gain C2 level and you can apply for a student visa in Germany for translation course and after completion, you will definitely get a Job as German Translator.
I completed BE in Automobile. At present, I am working in an IT company for 3+ years. But I don’t like to work here in the long run. In my situation having no experience in the automobile sector, Do I get an entry-level job in Germany by learning the German language or Could you please suggest to me a good option for my future career?
The German language alone won’t help you get a job in Germany. Instead, your academic qualifications and experiences are primary factors. But, then, you also need to find such jobs and apply for them. Usually, getting an overseas position in any company or living in the country where you’re seeking employment is relatively easier.
I am doing B.com. and also learning German side by side. What are the future scope or career opportunities with this combination (in India)??
There are fewer jobs that require both a commerce background and German. It is probably something related to finance and accounts in any German company or business that deals with them. On the other hand, you can find many jobs solely based on German, though that can increase if you have a specialized master’s degree.
Thanks a lot sir
Your chances are unlimited, try to get some work experience as auditor and gain German language proficiency in C2, Accountants with high German language proficiency have a lot of opportunities in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Lichtenstein- all of these are German speaking countries
After completion of BE in automobile, your decision to work in an IT company was wrong.
Vikash, I want to know that without any graduation or degree, what can I do solely on the basis of the German language?
You can get some entry-level jobs in BPO, but I’d recommend completing at least a bachelor’s degree if not a master’s.
The German language is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. It is the official language of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland as well as some parts of Belgium and Italy. It is also one of the four official languages of the European Union. Germany has around 100 million native speakers and about 50 million non-native speakers. It is also an important language to learn for those who study history, literature, or politics. You should learn German.
Hi Vikash, I am Lakshmi from India and i am 35+ years old, i have 12 years of experience as a customer support executive in motor insurance department, so after completing the German B2 level will I get a job in Germany in the same insurance department. Please suggest to me a good German language institute, is Geothe Institute is good, which I have near by?
Getting a job in Germany solely based on the German language is difficult. However, you can explore opportunities in BPO and MNC in India. Yes, Goethe is a great place to learn German.
Hii Mr. Vikash, I have done ba economics and I have 3 years of digital marketing experience. If I learn German advanced level, can I get a job in german after that?
Yes, that’s possible.
I wanted to ask that I completed my BA in German from Aligarh Muslim University with 87.44% and for the past three years I am doing a teaching job at a private institution I wanted to ask whether I can get scholarship opportunities or not study for masters in German literature from German-speaking nations like Germany, Austria, Switzerland, etc. And what job opportunities can I find there after the completion of my studies?
You can get a scholarship, but contact some overseas consultants or contact any Austrian or German organizations like DAAD. If the German language is the only skill, it is difficult to get a job there as most people speak fluent German. Look for MBA and try to get some experience.
Right now I am doing B.com from du and I wanted to learn the German language but in future, I am going to do MBA in marketing or in information technology. I just wanted to know it is the correct combination to get good job opportunities in future?
Yes, it’s good.
I am a 1st-year dropout of college but I have completed from Frankfinn Diploma in Hospitality and have experience of 4yrs working in the same. I am planning to learn German for improving my CV and new opportunities. Can you suggest to me the right direction?
Yes, German can enhance your career prospect in both standalone and in the travel industry. You can join any good institutions like Max Mueller Bhavan and aim for at least a B1 or B2 diploma.
I have done my B1 in German and looking forward to translation and teaching as a career. I have an Engineering background. I thought I should study German deeper and now looking for universities that teach BA German or MA German through Distance learning. Do we have any such universities in India? Or is there an online program that offers a UGC recognized BA german/ MA German degrees? Looking forward to hearing back.
I’m not aware of any such option in India. Both are full-time programs.
Thank you, Vikash.
I am Shalaka from Pune and have recently completed the C1 level in German. I am confused whether I should go ahead and learn C2 level in German or now that I have sufficient German skills should I switch to French so that I can become proficient in that too? We’d your suggestion regarding that. P.S I have a pretty well score in German C1.
Achieve near-native proficiency, i.e., C2, and then start with the next language. Once you begin learning another one, you may not get enough time and focus on German.
Hi, I am working with amazon for 5 years at the associate level and have a b.tech degree, but my work has nothing to do with me having an engineering degree. Have no skills, surviving in corporate is becoming tough for me, seeing no future for myself. Would learning German (or any other language) help me in any way? If yes, how much average time approximately does it take for people? would be grateful if you could help out.
Yes, it can benefit. From a career perspective, aim for higher intermediate competency, like B2. You can achieve in 2 years, but much depends on your perseverance and learning approach.
Thanks for the informative blog. It does inspire language learners like me. Currently, I am pursuing MBA in Mumbai, but the specialisation is yet to be selected. I have a commerce background but much more interested in the German language and have completed B2 from Goethe institute. Kindly suggest to me which specialisation I should go to combine German with MBA skills and fetch more opportunities.
This is pretty subjective. There is no one particular specialization that fits best. International marketing, finance, entrepreneurship, and operations are some good choices.
I am pursuing PGDBM in operations management, and I am also learning the German language. Please tell me how to find a job in Germany?
For that, you have to contact any job consultant who provides placement in Germany. Alternatively, you have to check some job portals to search for some opportunities as per your profile.
I am working as an immigration expert in an IT company with a large presence in Germany and other European countries. My overall work experience is 10 years, out of which I spent the first 5 years in the travel and tourism industry. Now that I am at the mid-level of my career, I have been planning to enhance my skills, thereby learning German that I keen to learn for a long time now.
Please advise how beneficial it could be for my profile in the long-term; up to which level should I target to pursue it and the institutes in Delhi to go for weekend courses, thereby not hampering my job?
It can assist you if you deal with German-speaking people or work in German companies. You can aim for Goethe-Zertifikat B1/B2 and study at one of the private institutes or Max Mueller Bhavan. They all offer weekend and evening batches for working professionals.
Currently, I am doing a B.A. in German Studies and doing a C1 course at Goethe Institut. I would like to do a course that would be complementing my German skills. I was thinking to go for a law or MBA as I want to work in the corporate sector. Would you tell me which would have course would have more scope?
I’d recommend going with a full-time MBA as it will be more beneficial with a combination of German. Law is ok, but it will take much more time and might not be helpful with German. Also, it would help if you gain some experience before joining a decent B-school.
I love this blog. I don’t know what I’d do without you and your great info! Thank you so much!
I’m glad to hear it Kalpana 🙂
I am working as an SAP Consultant. I am having 10 years of total experience in IT of which 5 years in SAP. Can I do the German language as I learned till A1 some years back? Can I get a good opportunity after learning German in SAP or other profiles in Pune or most of the abroad?

I want to know the fees for the German language.
The fees vary depending on the learning center you want to enroll.
Sir, Are there any degree courses in the German language in India via Distance Education?
Not in my knowledge.
Thank you for your reply to my previous questions. I had an MBA as an option after B.A. in German. But which MBA branch would complement with a foreign language? Also, which other short courses would benefit alongside?
There is no particular one. You can pick any popular specialization like finance, operation, tourism, IT, international marketing, etc.

Hi, I have done my pg in economics but I have no interest in pursuing it further. I am preparing for govt. exams but I want to do a diploma in the German language. Will that be useful for me with career perspective? Kindly help
PG in Economics, Govt. Job and Diploma in German are three different fields. Which Diploma? The duration of the Diploma course vary! A 1-year course will enhance your career prospect but might not be enough to get a decent job. If you want to be a successful German specialist, it will take at least 3 years!
Sir, I have completed engineering with a mechanical stream in 2013 and then I’m preparing for govt. exam but there are lac of student who yearly appeared and chances are very less to be selected.

So, sir, I want to know is this enough time to learn? Please reply, I am very confused and suggest me your fruitful knowledge about this…thank you!!!
It is not practical to achieve B1 in 6 months. While it depends on many factors like how much you study, method, your teacher, etc. It takes nearly 12-18 months to complete B1. If you wish to make a career in German, aim for B2!
I am planning to quit IT and learn German. What are the options that I will have in career and will there be flexible work from home jobs? How much can I earn?
A career change can be a long, risky and strenuous process. I usually don’t recommend, well at least in most cases. It will take a long time, say 5-7 years to learn German properly, gain some experience and contacts. If you wish to learn German, take it as a hobby and see yourself where you stand after a year or two. Then take an informed decision.
Hello sir! I am doing an advanced diploma in German from DU. I am confused whether I should do masters in German language or an MBA. Which option should I choose for better job prospects?

Hi! Great article. Would be helpful if you can share some insights for HR related opportunities in Germany or German-speaking countries. Would just learning language be good enough? Can you share some ideas what would be the best options for an HR role in these countries?
While German skill adds value to your resume, it is not enough to get any job in the German-speaking region. The higher qualification like MBA in HR, relevant experience, job opportunities in hand are some key components. It is easier to get a job if you’re living in Europe with a valid work permit.
Hello Sir, I am working in Service management with 8 years of experience and learning German from Language pantheon for past 1 year. I haven’t appeared for any test since my target is B2 to find a better job. What are the job opportunity and expected salary in Bangalore after doing B2 level with 8 years service industry’s experience? Right now I am at A2 level and if I study 8-10 hours daily how long it can take to achieve B2 level certificate?
It usually takes 2-3 years to achieve B2. Maybe 2 years more but that depends on your current proficiency level and learning method. You can appear for A2 test to check your level. After B2, You can apply to any new openings in BPO, ITES, and MNC where the combination is prerequisite. Unfortunately, there is no standard or average salary for language learner since every company offers a different paycheck depending on numerous factor.
Hi there, I hope you are doing fine. Your blog is really helpful but I’m still in a problem. I’m a political science student, 2nd year, Delhi university. I’m currently doing A1 level from Max Mueller Bhavan, I want to know what jobs I can go for after 3rd year in which german language will be fruitful to me. by the end of june 2020, I’ll be able to complete B2.1. Need you advice! looking forward for your reply!
These days, German is useful to the field of education, publishing, engineering, finance, science, power & utility, etc. In most of the German companies in India and also MNC that deal with the German-Speaking region employe few people with German skills for various work.
I’m sure after completing B2, you ‘ll find something good enough. As far as types of jobs are concerned, you can read a few articles on this blog to get some idea.
I got 84% in 12th arts. What are some of the good Universities in which I can apply for Bachelor’s degree in German language. Are there any entrance exam? Is a bachelor’s degree useful? What will be the career opportunities for me after completing the bachelor’s degree?
JNU, Delhi University, BHU, EFLU Hyderabad, Mumbai University, Visva-Bharati, Fergusson College – Pune, are some of the prominent Universities and Colleges with BA in German. The admission procedure varies.
For example, JNU admission is through entrance test, whereas DU admission is made through cut-off marks in 12th. Yes, BA in German is useful, and after BA, you can also pursue an MA.
Hello Sir. I have done my graduation in civil engineering. But now I am more interested in becoming a German professor. To become one, how many levels do I need to do? Is there scope in becoming a German teacher?
For German Professor or Associate/Assistant Professor in any University, you need at least an MA in German and must have cleared NET/SET. For any promotion, Ph.D. in German along with teaching/ research experience is compulsory. The University also appoint temporarily for lower pay without these qualifications. Even in that case, A higher proficiency like B2/C1 with experience is a prerequisite.
Because of very few new openings and high academic qualifications as entry barriers, getting a Job at any University is very tough. After B2, you can try as a German teacher in any School, Institute, or even corporate training.
First of all Thanks for Blog its very informative.
Currently I am working as a Pharmaceutical Scientist in India, completed M.Pharma and having almost 8 years of experience. I was searching for a better career option in abroad and finally I landed up with the thought of going Germany because of 2 specific reason 1) Job: There lots of Pharmaceuticals company in Germany 2) PhD: If I not get job there I apply for PhD course in German universities and post completion I look for Job.
Is my approach is right? Is learning German till B1 level will help me in achieving any of them? Should I learn German language first and once I complete B1 after that I apply for Job or PhD?
It is true that there are plenty of jobs in pharmaceutical companies in Germany. However, to get a job without living in the country is not an easy task. If you want to pursue a Ph.D. from Germany, you don’t need German skills in most cases since the majority of Ph.D. courses there are taught in English.
German will help you to communicate effectively with the Germans and also a great addition to your resume. Goethe B1 is okay but B2 is better!

I am doing my A1 level from goethe institute and i am in 2nd year doing bcom from sol. Can you please tell me where can i apply for job. And what qualifications are required to get a job in German embassy.
If you want to make a career in German, you should aim for B2. After achieving a higher competency level, you can apply to a number of new openings across the sectors. To get a job in the German embassy, you need other qualifications and skills besides German skills. Since the number of new job openings is few, it is a little challenging to get a job there.
I have chosen German as my career i just completed my A1 from bharatiya vidya bhavan and gonna appear for exam at goethe delhi as external candidate after that i will do my A2 from goethe only and by side i am doing BA from school of open learning so can you tell me is it good or should i do anything else with this. Also tell me that what job opportunities i will have. Kindly reply me sir. Danke?
You can aim for CEFR C1 in the next 3 years. After that, you can apply for numerous jobs in MNC as a German specialist. If you don’t want to put all the eggs in one basket, you can also pursue some professional In-demand courses.
That’s much helpful sir thanks for replying and what skills are required for embassies?
You can find all the details at German jobs in embassies
I am having 2 year of experience in IT. I am looking for foreign opportunity in MNC (Germany, Japan). What certification do I need to complete? How certification help me to get job? I’m bit confused about Japanese vs Germany languages. Which one can I learn and complete asap?
Unfortunately, This is one of the common misconceptions that languages will help any candidate to find a job abroad. The language will certainly make life better in the country where it is spoken. However, you need other in-demand skill, experience, and working visa to get a job in the corresponding country. It’s better to concentrate on your existing IT field.
Both Japanese and German are equally good. Whatever you choose, you won’t regret. It will take roughly 2-3 years to learn German and 3-4 years for Japanese. There is no real-world career advantage in short-term courses.
My daughter has done her BMM and MAPR from Mumbai University. Right now she is in Graz, Austria doing a course in German language completed A1,A2,B1 and will appear for B2 in March. What are her options especially in the consulates or embassies in India. Thanks for your advice.
In embassies and consulates, the new openings are very few and mostly hired through references. In most cases, besides language and communication skills, candidates also need other qualifications like MBA in International relations, IT or finance background, etc as per requirement.
i am a working professional in automobile industry as a production / operations assistant manager. i want to know how can i get a job in germany in any big MNC like daimler, bmw, volkswagen and many others. Will learning german help me in this regard? how much time will it take to acquire the necessary level? Where in gurugram/ delhi i can go?
While German will help you to assimilate into Germany, it doesn’t help you to get a job over there. The big German automobile companies hire based on skills, experience, and current visa status. Even if you apply to any new opening, you still have to visit that country to give the interview. It is difficult to get a job in Germany without living in that country.
It will take time to learn German properly and clear B2. Read — German Courses in Gurugram. In Delhi, you can contact Goethe-Institut.
What is the most economical certification to learn German and what are the opportunities in Bangalore. thanks

Hello sir, My daughter right now studying in 8th std. She is more interested to learn ‘German Language’ and she wants to make her career in German language. So pls guide me when to start her classes or is there any crash course. Thx
It is great to have an interest in languages at an early age. If German is not the option in her School, She can join any private institute with an aim to complete ZD – Fit in Deutsch 1 and 2.
These two German exams are for school going children aged 10 -16 years. After 12th, She can pursue 5-year BA and MA in German from any top University like JNU, DU, BHU, etc. Another option – After 16, she can learn German in any pvt institute with a goal to complete C2 in a few years.
Sir, thank you for the precious Information in the article. I have done B. Tech in Chemical Engineering in 2012 and since then I have been working in a Kolkata based company where I am responsible for designing and developing Wastewater Treatment Plant. Please suggest me how I shall be benefitted to learn German language or please tell me how much my career growth rate will be accelerated after learning the German language?
Language skill is useful in nearly all fields of human endeavor. Having said that, the real benefit will only come if you’re working with companies or people that deals with the German-speaking world. This is where the scope lies.
Sir, please tell me that from where i can learn German language in Jaipur (Rajasthan). Because i am not getting any good institution since 2 months.
You can try Goethe-Zentrum, S6, Jyoti Marg, Bapu Nagar in Jaipur. The quality of German teaching is good at Goethe centre. There are several other small institutes like E-Language Studio, GNS, Dantes, Namaste German, IFCS, etc. but not sure about quality.
I want to pursue a certified German language course side by side with my BSc.It studies. Please suggest some courses offered at the Kalina University with the fee structure.
I guess you’re talking about Mumbai University’s Kalina Campus? Department of German offers various part-time courses including a 1-year Certificate program. Fees is around 5,000. You can contact 111, Dept. of German at Kalina Campus (022-26528359).
Sir I completed MSc (Home Science) I want to learn German. Is there any good opportunities? sir please suggest me.
Opportunities always exist! There’s just one caveat : Language learning takes time, at least 2-4 years. There is no benefits in short-term German courses in the current competitive job market. If you’ve interest and ready to study for that long, then German is one of the good choice!
i will complete B2.1 in January from max Mueller bhavan new Delhi..and after that i am looking forward to a job. so where can i apply any suggestion or help!
I already replied you yesterday. Make a good C.V., register on various job portals and apply accordingly!
I have done German language till B2.1 level from max Mueller bhavan new delhi and now i am interested in seeking job so what is the best to start with gaining in experience so where should i apply. please help!!
You can also take Zertifikat Deutsch B2, the exam conducted by Goethe-Institut. For jobs, register yourself on a various job portal, sooner or later you might find a decent job.
Target Jobs in various MNC by filtering out call centres. In starting, focus on getting a good job rather than salary. You can also send me your C.V. I will let you know if I find something suitable for you.
After 10th my daughter can select only German language for future career?
NO. In 11th as per CBSE guidelines, a student have to study 5 subjects in total. She can choose German as an elective subject though chances are School won’t have that option. She can always learn German side-by-side or after 12th.
I am B. Tech graduated in computer science, also I have 4 years of experience in software automation testing so will learning Japanese or German language add benefits in my career? If yes which language I should choose. I want my career in IT software but with which language? German or Japanese?
Yes. German or Japanese will be great value-add to your C.V. since both are important in broad engineering sector. Which one will depend on various factors including how much time you can dedicate. If you have something in mind, go with that one otherwise German is fine since it is one of the most spoken language in Europe and not very difficult compare to Japanese.
Time is not the concern. Actually I am confused between German and Japanese as both will be new for me. I am a IT guys i just want to know which language will give me more advantage. I want to go abroad to work in IT or management field. I have a friend in Japan he can help me to get the job in Japan also as per his experience, Japan has more IT job for Indians who knows Japanese compare to German but I don’t have any known person in Germany but as I heard German is good for IT compare to Japanese so I don’t have clear view which language can give me better onsite opportunities.
Honestly, there is no “better” or “best” language for IT professionals. French, Spanish, German, and Japanese are four great choices. There are 3 possibilities
(i) Once the target country is known with some certainty, start learning the language of that region.
(ii) Learn the one you actually have a desire to learn and that alone will get you much farther irrespective of career prospects. This is what I do. There is NO drawbacks of language learning, at least I am not aware of.
(iii) Learn one of the 5 most popular foreign languages. All 5 are equally good for the future.
Hello Sir this side Trashti. I want to learn German Language but i am working as Air-Ticketing executive. This language would be help me in my ticketing career?
Air-Ticketing is a small segment of a very wide industry of Travel and Hospitality. While German is an added advantage for this ever-growing industry, it is tricky to say whether you get such opportunities or not. The pros of language learning, however, are limitless.
Sir I m doing my graduation. I wanna learn German and I wanna be fluent in German. Will I able to get a job in Europe only on language Base? After B2 level.
NO because there are roughly 100 million German speakers in Europe. Knowledge of German is required if number of speakers are negligible like India or you have some other In-demand skills along with German.
sir i am Assi professor in Engineering college i have completed my M.A B.Ed ( English) MBA (HRM) LLB. LLM what are the benefits after learning German language . Pls Guide me.
If you want, you can learn as hobby. If you’ve the interest in art, literature, or philosophy, that is the another reason to Learn. Since you already have multiple academic qualification. Thus from career perspective, it won’t be very beneficial. If you want to pursue Ph.D. from Germany, then you should learn German.
Good evening sir,
I am doing 1 year diploma course in German from YMCA which will cover till B2.2 level. You were recommending 3 year advanced diploma or till B2.2 from any institute like Goethe-Institut, etc. to get a good job and not YMCA. So my question is why to study 3 years from Goethe-Institut when YMCA offers same B2.2. level in just 1 year that also in considerably lower fees? What should i do after 1 year Diploma to get a good job or PG studies in Germany?
Hi Tripti, Few points:-
1) No Institution including YMCA cover the syllabus till B2.2 in 1 year. YMCA offers a diploma based on their own curricula.
2) B2.2 is just a popular benchmark in German. Whether you study at any University or Pvt. Institute or Max Mueller – The aim should be to reach higher proficiency in German. This will take roughly 3 years. I’ve rarely seen anyone reaching that level in 1 or 2 years.
3) No Institute including Max Mueller offers B2.2. certification. TestDaF or Zertifikat Deutsch is intended to measure your German Skills. For B2 certification, one needs to pass the B2 exam conducted by Goethe-Institut.
4) Since most people only ask for the best option or top of the line. Thus, I recommend Max Mueller and few good institutes. If you’re happy with the YMCA, then you should continue with it.
5) After Diploma, continue in a good institute with a target to complete B2. These days B2 or equivalent is the prerequisite for the majority of the good jobs. 1-year Diploma from YMCA is not enough, maybe ok for few entry-level jobs or if you want to study in Germany where the medium of instruction is English.
Sir I am just doing my graduation and now I want to learn German & i want make career in this. Do we have some good job scope on only language requirement as I am not having any other degree assistance?
Yes, there are many German specialist jobs. You should aim for Goethe-Zertifikat B2 or Advanced Diploma or BA/MA in German.
Sir I am electrical engineer having one year experience in power sector what is my scope after getting B2 proficiency in German language.
Knowledge of German can add an extra value to your CV specially if you are an engineer. German plays a very important role in power sector and ability to speak this germanic language is an added advantage in many such german powerhouses. There are also plenty of scholarship to pursue master degree in Germany provided that you are fluent and completed C1/C2. Think about learning German and later as per your proficiency and available opportunity, you can decide accordingly.
I’m 38 years old and currently working as an assistant manager in finance and accounting domain. I have total experience of 15 years and now wanted to make my career in foreign language. I have learn German language at basic level around two years back for some official purpose. However I have developed a interest in learning this language and hence wanted to shift my career from accounting to language expert. Could you please advise whether my decision is correct to make a career in foreign language at this age and how long will it take to complete a B2 level?
There’s a lot of effort involved in career change. With your vast experience, why you want to start something completely different from scratch? Changing fields is usually much more difficult than finding a new job or develop interest in the same field. The risk is not worth the reward. In short, i won’t advice but that is my personal view.
Generally, it takes 3 years to complete B2 level if you study 10-15 hours per week. Success and good salary is not guaranteed after B2. It depends on several other factors such as opportunity, luck, experience, proficiency level, contacts, etc. If you’ve the interest, you should learn German. Learning a new language is a good hobby and at any age helps the brain.
I have completed diploma engineering after 10th. I would really like to learn German language from Max Mueller Bhavan, Kolkata. Am I eligible for doing the course?
Yes. You are eligible. Admission is done on first-come-first-serve. Read – German Courses in Kolkata.
Sir, i have completed class 12th this year. Now i want to make my career in german language. So, could you please tell me from where should i do german and my graduation beside it in India?
There are two options — Either BA in German or Bachelor in any stream + Advanced Diploma in German from any University or course from any private institute like Goethe-Institut.
If you have already taken admission in the bachelor program, then try Goethe-Institut. You can aim for C1, a prerequisite for good jobs.
Sir Which is the best Institute in Delhi for German Language?
In Delhi, Max Mueller Bhavan is the best followed by few private institutes like Language pantheon, German circle, The German language school, to name a few.
Sir how much time does it takes to complete german language course from max mueller bhavan, delhi
Max Mueller has divided the entire course into 8 Levels (A1, A2, B1, B2, B2.1, C1.1, C1.2, & C2). You can choose either Extensive (5-6 Months, 3.5 Hours/Twice in a week) or Intensive – Fast Track (3 to 3.5 Months, 2 Hours/5 Days in a week). Depends on Intensive / Extensive, It will take 3-4 years to complete C2. However, B2 is enough for 80% of Jobs.
You can complete B2/2.1 in 2 years! Read – Learn German in Delhi
Sir I m just doing my graduation and now I want to learn German at basic level. Do we have some good job scope on only language requirement as I am not having any other degree assistance?
Thanks to globalization and rising demand, students are opting for full-time career in foreign languages including German. However, to find a decent Job – You need minimum Goethe-Zertifikat B2 or Advanced Diploma from any University. This will take 3 years. There are also few entry level jobs if you have completed B1.
Sir I m doing BA English honors and after completing my graduation degree I want to make career in German language then what are the career options for me??
There are plenty of Career Options. Everything is there in this article. Read! If you want to make career in German, then goal should be Goethe-Zertifikat B2/C1. It will take 2-3 years. Start only if you can study for that long.
I did my engineering but my job is not related to my field of study, I am currently working in BPO and have more than 6+ years experience. Now learning german will enhance my career growth or will it be helpful to shift my career into german specialist by completing till B1 or B2. Kindly suggest.
Proficiency in German can help you to shift your career. However, B1 is not enough. Your target should be at least B2.2 if not C1, If you really want to do something good with better job security.
Sir, I completed MBA with Finance, i decided to learn German language. what are the opportunities i had according to my qualification? And if i want to study in German university what course i have to choose now? Please suggest me.
Proficiency in German can help you to find a job in German, MNCs or any Indian companies where German skills are required or an added advantage. To study in Germany, try to complete at least Goethe-Zertifikat B1.
Pursuing Bachelor of economics along with German language is a good option or not? What can it benefit me further? And which course would be beneficial after the bachelors in same along with German Language? And what career opportunities are there in the same field. Hope to hear from you soon.
While there are jobs in every sector including finance or economics where German skills are required but scope and opportunities are quite limited beyond engineering, automobile, science, IT, technology, chemical, architecture, etc. Now, you don’t need to pursue Engineering because of German. Your first objective should be to choose the primary subject for bachelor and then master degree based on your interest and goal. Then you can decided which language will be suitable with that degree course.
sir, i am fresher in mechanical engineer now, am doing A1 of german language. After completed the A1 level what i do? and also i’m looking for job in my core field with help of german language. any suggestion please?
A1 is just a beginners level. Try to complete at least B1 if not B2. Then only you will able to utilize the German Skills in the field of Engineering sector.
sir i am doing A1 level of German. I am Mechanical Engineer with 1 year experience. I have interest for learning german language so i join the classes. but some of friends and seniors now telling me that why are you wasting the time on learning german. There is not much future scope. I am confused now. What should i hv to do?
It depends on why you are studying German! If you learning just to add more value in your CV, then German is a good choice for Engineers! B1 is enough.
If you want to shift your career from Engineering to German specialist, Then there is no shortcut towards success. If you want to work as a German expert with good salary, Goethe-Zertifikat C1 + experience is required. That will take anywhere between 3 to 5 years. Very few reach proficiency like C1, maybe 2%-5% as per my experience. It is better to use your existing engineering skills and add German to make it better. Later, you can decide as per opportunity in hand + proficiency level.
Sir , I am pursuing diploma course in German language from rajasthan university though I am not technical student. I did Bsc maths in my college academics. Sir plz suggest, I am looking forward for further education in Germany like msc and ms. Sir are they providing scholarship and jobs for their students which comes from another country? As I am seeking job option in our country too ?
Germany’s universities have an excellent international reputation in the field of Science. Since higher education in Germany is funded by the states, It is either Free or not expensive like France, UK, etc. You only have to pay for your living expenses which can be done through part-time jobs. While a Master degree is taught in English (in most universities), you still need proficiency like B2 in German to find any Job.
They don’t offer Jobs to International students since they are in Germany for a limited time-frame. You have to find one on own. You can contact DAAD for scholarship opportunities.
Sir, I am planning to do one year diploma from YMCA, Delhi. Is it enough for better career opportunities or jobs?
NO. At least Advanced Diploma (DU, Jamia) or Goethe-Zertifikat B1/B2 is prerequisite for most of the jobs. Also, The quality of YMCA is not very good. You can try few other options like Goethe-Institut – Max Mueller.
Sir, one year diploma in German language is enough for the better career?
One year Diploma from where? If you want to make your career in German, you should think about pursuing Advanced Diploma (3 years) from any University or B2 (2-3 years) from any private or Max Mueller.
Sir, I completed mechanical engineering and i choose german language to learn. In pune, one private institute they said “we are providing 3 months course for a1,a2, and b1,b2”. Is it sufficient for job in india with good salary. please tell me a better suggestion. Thanking you SIR.
A1 + A2 in 3 months? or A1 in 3 months? Well, it is possible to complete A1 or A2 or even B1 in 3 months if they teach a minimum of 40 hours/month. The entire B2 (subdivided between 2 & 2.1) will take 1 year. So, overall it will take a minimum of 1.5 years to complete B2 if you study 15+ hours every week. After B2, you will eligible for most of the good jobs.
You can try Max Mueller Bhavan. Read – Foreign language courses in Pune.
Sir, I am confused between Spanish and German language. Which language is more valuable in Indian job market and till what level should I learn it and where should I learn it from. I am from Kolkata. B.com graduate and a fresher. Plz help me out sir
Both are equally important. Spanish is more beneficial in the KPO/BPO, Export & US market. German is the most spoken native language in Europe. It is important in Engineering, Science, Machines, Power, etc. Whatever you choose, you won’t regret it in the future.
sir , currently im doing b1 at MMB mumbai.I wanna know , how can I apply for language interpreter Jobs ??
To become an interpreter, you need near-native proficiency in both (Source as well as the target language). The job, therefore, requires a high level of language competence in German (C1 or C2 or Master degree). B1 is not enough.
Sir if i take private classes in German speaking course, will i get jobs? or i have to study in Colleges only? Will i able to complete the course in 4 Months?
Yes, you can take private classes to learn German. College is not mandatory. For Jobs, you need Certificates. You can appear for German proficiency test like A1, A2, B1, etc. in any Goethe-Institut centre in India. 4 Months is not enough. Minimum 2 years or B1 is required for entry level Jobs.
Sir I have an opportunity to learn a foreign language for one year which is for free. And recently ,I came to know that in Germany, we get free education for masters. So now I am thinking to choose german language . But my doubt is that , do I have same opportunity to get free education after learning french language too ??. As I am not strong in financial matter , please suggest me which language will be better option to fulfill my dream of doing masters in abroad for free …
Thank you very much …
It is difficult to pursue Master degree in abroad Free of cost. It is true that a significant academic institutions in Germany are free for students. However, getting admission and cost of living & other compulsory expenses are expensive in Germany. Most of the Universities in France or Italy or UK or any european countries are not Free. In fact, in most cases – they are quite expensive. In few cases and courses, Scholarship and funding opportunities are possible for meritorious candidates.
Hello Sir, Im a B.com graduate, completed in the year 2011. Then stated working under finance domain for bpo. I have 6 years of experience.

Now i seriously looking for learning language course for better salary . Need to support my family. Please suggest me which course is best for my situation and till which level i should study to get place like amazon. I’m from Chennai sir. Really looking for your valuable advice.
If you’re looking for job opportunities in MNCs with better pay and future prospect, can study German or Spanish. Both are good options. Target should be at least B2 and that will take a minimum of 2 years provided that you study 10-15 hours/week.
In Chennai, For German – try Max Mueller Bhavan and For Spanish – Instituto Hispania. Read — Language courses in Chennai.
i have done c1 level in german language and don’t really wanna work with BPOs. How would i get the job in hospitality or travel and tourism so that i can put my German knowledge upto the best use ? Is any specific course in tour and travel is required to get the desired job ?
The Indian tourism and hospitality industry has emerged as one of the key drivers of growth among the services sectors in India. To participate in this sector as an employee, You can do some short term courses like Computer reservation systems (CRS- Amadeus, Galileo, Sabre & Abacus), Air fares and ticketing skills, Travel agency management, etc. You can also pursue some Diploma in Travel and Tourism from any recognized centre.
Sir, I have completed graduation and interested in learning German or French. Which one is better. I’m from Varanasi. Please help me sir!
French and German languages are the two most popular among language learners. If your target is Europe, then German is a better choice since it is the most spoken native language of Europe.
Plus, The German economy ranks number one in Europe, and the language is useful for engineers and science students. With over 30 French-speaking countries, French on the other hand is a Global Language. Overall, French is more useful. Whatever you choose, you won’t regret it.
I am confuse between german language and japanese which is more preferable in india and what scope i will get by learning this language
That is a difficult question 🙂 Both are equally important and popular from the career and job market perspective. If you have limited time to study, choose German. If the unique, mesmerizing culture and tradition of Japan invoke you, go with Japanese. Whatever you choose, you won’t regret.
Is b1 level is sufficient while studying in india or doing job.
B1 is enough if you want to add German language skills in your C.V. but if you want to make your career in German then B1 is not enough for jobs where language is mission critical. Pursuing at least two more levels (till B2) will be the right approach.
Sir I heard that on GATE exam score German university offers higher education. Please have insight on this. Thanks
I don’t quite understand the question. Germany has several top ranked Universities for higher education. Some German universities also require you to have cleared and scored a certain level in GMAT/GRE. Similarly, for Courses offered in English, IELTS/TOEFL would be a requirement. Basic knowledge of German language is must though not mandatory to live in Germany.
Where can I learn German in Mumbai? Does Mumbai university undertakes any diploma or degree courses in German?
You can pursue German from Goethe-Institut Max Mueller Bhavan. Mumbai University (Department of German) offers 1-year in Certificate, Diploma, Advanced Diploma, BA, and MA in German.
Tysm for this article! I’ve done my BA in eng literature and planning to learn German from Max Mueller (starting from A1) for a profession in translation and interpretation. Would you recommend I learn any other skill/course to help me in that profession along with German language skills?
Consider doing masters in any popular stream. A good academic combination will minimize the risk and increase career options.
How much anyone can earn after learning the German language in India or in Germany?
Well, that depends upon your knowledge and job profile. The average salary for fresher is around 3 to 4 lakhs per annum. If you are proficient with several years of experience in German, you can earn 1000 to 2000 INR per hour for being an interpreter, translator, or teacher.
