Germany is a Central European nation extending from the Baltic and North seas in the north to the Alps in the south with borders to nine other countries. Its democratic principles and advocacy for human rights as well as its strong economy and well-developed infrastructure have made Germany an open, modern and tolerant country with an important political and economic role to play, not only in the European Union, but also in the international community. English is the first foreign language learnt and is spoken well, particularly by the young adult generation.
