Die Instrumente zur Förderung von Deutsch als Fremdsprache zeigen nachhaltige Wirkung. Nach wie vor gibt es in Europa die meisten Deutschlernenden, aber insbesondere in Afrika und Asien gewinnt Deutsch an Bedeutung. Die Zahl der Schulen, die Deutschunterricht anbieten, ist von 95.000 im Jahr 2015 auf rund 106.000 Schulen gewachsen. Die sprachliche Qualifizierung von Fachkräften aus dem Ausland spielt in der DeutschFörderung eine zunehmend wichtigere Rolle. Digitale Lernangebote erfreuen sich wachsender Beliebtheit.

Außerhalb Europas fällt ein außerordentlich hohes Wachstum von fast 50 % in Afrika auf. Zu den afrikanischen Ländern, in denen die Zahl der Deutschlernenden gestiegen ist, gehören Ägypten, Algerien und Côte d'Ivoire. Ein weiterer wichtiger Wachstumsmarkt der deutschen Sprache liegt in Asien, vor allem in China.

Nord-/Süd-/ Mittelamerika:
812.225
Asien/Ozeanien: 1.773.750
