Do you always read all the DW news articles?
I have a question for you. If you are reading the German news articles, would you read all of them? Or do you just read 2 out of the whole a day? How many articles would you recommend me to read in a day?
Well I read DW because I actually like news, it's just a bonus to can do it to improve my German, so I only read the articles that interest me and that would vary from day to day.
Have you tried Nachrichtenleicht ? http://www.nachrichtenleicht.de/ It may be better for you if you are level 7 and you can either build up to DW (which also has a slow news section on audio) or just scan the headlines. Another useful strategy is Euronews which has the same news in many languages http://de.euronews.com/ so you can always check back on the english version for a quick vocab grab. Good luck.
