Karlovac gymnasium was accepted as the 37th member of the German global school network in Croatia today (Tues).
Such schools provide students with diplomas that will help them attend German universities without having to take entrance examinations in the German language. The diplomas also help graduates get jobs in German-speaking countries.
Sebastian Brokelmann from the German embassy in Zagreb said he had never seen such enthusiasm for the German language as in Karlovac.
He announced meetings with local government officials about introducing the German language as the first and main foreign language.
He added: "Nowadays, we expect everyone to speak and write English, but I believe knowledge of the German language is more advantageous, especially because Croatia cooperates a lot with Austria and Germany. "
