Speaking at the inauguration of the German Club at the Crown Prince Academy in Accra, Ambassador Rüdiger said there is the need to adopt multilingualism, especially with Ghana being part of the ECOWAS countries.
He stated that “knowing different languages opens minds and gives you entirely new perspective on many things.”
He added that it does not only enhance the “exchange of ideas, knowledge but festers strong unity among countries.”
He reiterated that German is not only one of the great languages of the world but also with the highest number of native speakers in the European Union, the second most spoken language in Europe after Russian - the language of great poets, artists, engineers and businessmen.
According to him, students taking their German lessons seriously will not only take them to places but unlock great opportunities as well.
Meanwhile, the German Club Facilitator at the Crown Prince Academy, Ekye Mensah added that the introduction of German language into the School’s curricula will not only help pupils to appreciate the meaning and culture of other languages, but to also unlock doors of opportunities.
He added Crown Prince Academy strives to be among the best basic schools in multilingualism.
