What are the different types of Germanic languages?

Is there any comparison between the English and German language?

  • But unfortunately German also has some irregular comparisons, just as English does. Sometimes these irregular forms are quite similar to those in English. Compare, for instance, the English good/better/best with the German gut/besser/am besten. On the other hand, high/higher/highest is hoch/höher/am höchsten in German.

Is Polish a Germanic language?

  • German is – as the name suggests – a Germanic language. Okay, you might have figured out as much, but what you might not know is that Polish, is not a Germanic language, but rather a Slavic one. The Polish language is much closer to languages such as Czech than to German.

Where is German spoken around the world?

  • German is spoken by about 95 million people worldwide, and is the official language of Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg and Liechtenstein. Written German has been standardized from a myriad of related dialects into Hochdeutsch or ‘High German’, although there remain significant regional differences in the spoken language.
