easy news in german
I don't know if anybody has already posted this, but here it is: http://www.nachrichtenleicht.de/
This website has news in simple german, moreover you can also hear the same news read by a native. (it's less frustrating than reading news in "normal" newspaper websites with a lot of words I can't understand)
Fully agree with your comments. I have also get the Deutsche Welle Nachrichten twice daily and it has also helped me to improve my German vocabulary.
Both "nachrichtenleicht" and the dw-Nachrichten are great resources.
"Nachrichtenleicht" is probably a bit easier because it is aimed at mentally handicapped native speakers of German. Not that it matters much, but just so you know - it contains a lot of spellings that are unusual and borderline wrong, such as "Bundes-Kanzlerin" instead of "Bundeskanzlerin". The idea is to break up "long" words into smaller chunks to make them easier to read. Also, the website uses colloquialisms rather than formal language.
DW-Nachrichten are aimed at foreign language learners, but the level might be a bit higher.
Can I suggest a thing to those posting here ? If you are delighted and thankful for the infos as I am, please thumbs it up as I did, too. But - imho - it would be better not to write to say thanks only.
In this way we could leave the space free for those wanting to add other links and materials about easy news in german.
Last but not least those who are following via email the discussion will receive only messages adding useful information rather than daily multiple messages of thanks and greetings.
From what I read on DW website it seems we have to ask permission ... http://www.dw.de/can-i-use-articles-and-content-from-dwde-for-my-own-purposes/a-3253076 http://www.dw.de/can-i-share-dw-content-on-the-internet/a-3254782
Guys im trying the DW Nachrichten but its mostly audio right? If possible, does anyone know a text website or RSS maybe?
Absolutely perfect for what I am looking for, many thanks indeed. Checking this out now.
thank you so much! this is amazing! especially because I have been trying to read Der Spiegel, and losing all my confidence.
Vielen Dank! Ich habe gerade einen Artikel über die Flüchtlingskrise gelesen - es spart viel Zeit denn ich kann die Nachrichten lesen und Deutsch lernen:D Danke nochmal!
