German as a foreign language involves German as a foreign language.

In German itself, this is known as "Deutsch als Fremdsprache" (DaF) - there is a corresponding term for German as a second language which is "Deutsch als Zweitsprache" (DaZ). The word for learning is "lernen", so "Deutsch als Fremdsprache lernen", and the word for teaching is "unterrichten" so "Deutsch als Fremdsprache unterrichten ".

German grammar is broadly similar to English grammar but is somewhat more complex.
