Listening is always a good way to improve your German, especially when you are tired of the synthesized duolingo voice. However listening to radio, might not be a good idea since everyone is speaking too fast. So I found this weekly podcast. Each episode is about 6 minutes of clear and slow speaking, you can find the full transcript of the episode on the website.

Enjoy!

I figure I may as well correct you on your German text. See it as a help, not as "hating" or something :)

Hören ist eine gute Methode zu verbessern deine Deutsch.

Correct is: Hören ist eine gute Methode dein Deutsch zu verbessern.
The infinitive-phrase needs to go at the end of a sentence. And deine is for feminine words, while Deutsch is Neuter

Jedoch, ist Radio zu schnell fur anfanger zu verstehen .

Correct is: Jedoch ist Radio zu schnell für Anfänger zu verstehen.
Just some Umlauts that need to be there and a comma that doesn't belong where it is.

Ich habe diese wochliche Podcast befindet.

Correct is: Ich habe diesen wöchentlichen Podcast gefunden.

Befindet means "is located" or something like that. And the Gender of Podcast is controversial (like with so many other loanwords) but to me it sounds like a der-Wort. And finally, it's wöchentlich, not wöchlich.

Jeder Folge ist eswa sech Minuten auf langsame gesproche.

Typos, many typos :P

I'd rewrite this a bit: Jede Folge ist etwa sechs Minuten lang und langsam gesprochen.

Apart from some endings, you say "sechs Minuten lang" and although "auf langsam" isn't really wrong it sounds weird to me.

Man kann die volle Texte auf die Seite findet. (Tut mir leid fur mein schlecht gramatik)

Man kann den ganzen Text auf der Seite finden. (Tut mir Leid für meine schlechte Grammatik)

You don't really say "die vollen Texte", it sounds wrong in German.

That was some work, thought I'd do the same :D Let's see if someone corrects me :D

Jedoch ist Radio zu schnell für Anfänger zu verstehen.

"Jedoch ist Radio zu schnell, um es als Anfänger zu verstehen." The above sentence could sound as if the radio is too fast to understand as a beginner... like it was so easy to understand as a beginner, that speed would be bad.

Befindet means "is located" or something like that.

"befindet" as in "Das Auto befindet sich hinter dem Haus" means "is located". "Das Befinden" is a noun and means "condition", but not like the condition that your car or house is in, but how you are/feel for example. (health, mental condition)

although "auf langsam" isn't really wrong it sounds weird to me.

Na, it's wrong. Just omit the "auf".

Tut mir Leid für meine schlechte Grammatik

Instead of "für" it should be "wegen", but then the sentence starts to sound funny, so I would phrase it: "Entschuldigung für meine schlechte Grammatik." or "Meine schlechte Grammatik tut mir Leid."

Thanks once again! I thought Entschuldigung is wrong here, so I used the tut mir lied. which turned out to be the opposite

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Morgengrauen

Hm, if you want to apologize to somebody, they are exchangeable.

But in case you would ask somebody to make space in the street so you can pass through, you would say "Entschuldigung, kann ich mal durch?", but not "Tut mir Leid".

    Yeah its ok, but maybe try "Deutsch, Warum Nicht, DW" Its really good and has an intresting story to follow. There is four series's in total. Free from the Apple Store!

    1. https://itunes.apple.com/podcast/deutsch-warum-nicht-series/id268481342?mt=2
    2. https://itunes.apple.com/podcast/deutsch-warum-nicht-series/id268481668?mt=2
    3. https://itunes.apple.com/podcast/deutsch-warum-nicht-series/id268481782?mt=2
    4. https://itunes.apple.com/podcast/deutsch-warum-nicht-series/id268481779?mt=2

    If you complete both Duolingo German and Deutsch Warum Nicht, I think you should be just about fluent!

    Viele danke! Das wird mich sehr hilfen! (Ich habe dir schon ein Lingot gegeben =P). I think it's very important to listening to German while you learning it (And, of course, on only to the monotonic-emotionless voice of Duolingo) I'm trying to listen to German as much as I can. So Thank you very much! :)

    Hey, don't get this wrong but just thought it might be helpful to correct on a couple of things:

    Viele danke should be Vielen Dank!

    helfen (not hilfen) takes the dative so it should be: "Das wird mir sehr helfen"

    http://www.deutschlandradiokultur.de/

    Has lots of articles in written and spoken Version. You can first read the article and then let it be read to you by a native Speaker. You can upload the texts in immersion, so others can help you in translating and then listen to the audio file while reading the translated or original text.

    http://www.deutschlandradiokultur.de/wissenschaft-bildung.1518.de.html http://www.deutschlandradiokultur.de/politik-zeitgeschehen-inland.1537.de.html

    Most of the audio files can be downloaded, so yo can listen to them offline while reading the text in the bus or in the garden.
