If you speak English it's England
10 reasons why German and English are similar
7. Both languages use the Arabic number system
Another benefit for English speakers learning German is that the two languages use the same Arabic numbers. Similar to English, all numbers are composed of the digits 0-9 and follow the same core principles, although they have different names in German.
This can arguably best be shown using the numbers from 10 to 20.
English: ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, eighteen, nineteen, twenty.
German: ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, eighteen, nineteen, twenty.
As you can see, the suffix “ten” is replaced with “ten”, but the basic pattern remains the same.
8. German and English are popular languages around the world
English is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, but this status can sometimes prevent English speakers from learning a second language, especially if the language is considered less of a global importance.
But the German language is still flourishing. For example, it is the most widely spoken language in the European Union. German is officially spoken in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium and various other countries and is also recognized as a minority language in countries such as Brazil, Kazakhstan, Namibia and Denmark.
