Hi 👋 @Dio 

You are bilingual and that is amazing. The question to ask yourself is, what language would you be most comfortable communicating in and connecting with your target audience? Teaching in German may give you an advantage for German speaking students if you have a niche in your area with less competitors than the English speaking genre of what you teach. 

Marketplace insights in your instructor dashboard is a great place to begin to see what is most requested.

Hi @Dio

 

Ich hoffe, dir geht es gut!

 

It's fantastic that you're considering publishing a course on Udemy! As @Alexia mentioned, there's no definitive answer to your question, as teaching in German or English both have their pros and cons. The best starting point is the suggested Marketplace Insights Tool. 

 

I also wanted to let you know that we have a German community. If you'd like to connect with other German-speaking instructors, you can find us here 😊.

 

Bis bald und viele Grüße!
