I know of students who took German and did so well that they obtained scholarships to do undergraduate studies in German Unis, that is, the medium of instruction is in GERMAN.

I am not aware if there are scholars studying in French Unis though.

French more useful for humanities; German more useful for sciences.

German is easier to read; French is easier to speak — or so people tell me.
