Grüße von dem Deutschprogramm des Portland Community College
Maus, Haus, Bier, Katze: What do these words have in common? They are all German cognates. Can you guess their English equivalents? It’s easy: mouse, house, beer, and cat!
German is easier to learn than you might think and is the second most commonly used scientific language. Germany is also a great place to study and work. Germany awards a great number of scholarships and working visas for students and professionals.
So why study German at PCC? Because we have a great program offering a variety of day and evening courses, great instructors, and great students. PCC is also very affordable.
We also have many activities outside the classroom: field trips, service learning, German Day (see video), German Club and Stammtisch. Stammtisch is a monthly informal get-together at a local restaurant where students, friends, and family can practice their German while eating and drinking traditional German fare.
