Looking for complementary German audio lessons.

Hello Duolingo German learners!

I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for (free?) audio courses for German. I'm after those kind of audio books you see in 90s films: 'repeat after me: "Ich habe hunger, Ich habe hunger" very good'. Something maybe an hour long at a time, that I can actively listen to whilst walking or going to the gym, just to have more exposure to listening to german, without going cold turkey without the English translation.

Hope you too, find them useful...


Have you tried coffee break german? It is not an hour long. It is between 20 minutes and 30 minutes but it is quite good


Thanks! I had not heard of them, I have now signed up for a free trial :D


It is pretty good! enjoy!

Hello Stephanie!

There is one called Assimil - German With Ease its last edition and its oldest version German Without Toil (1965). Both are great. There is another called Globo easier to find on the internet but it is in Portuguese.

Here you can find the PDF ----http://downloadtopthingsonline.top/cat21/assimil-german-with-ease-pdf-download.php

And here the audios ------ https://www.4shared.com/zip/jhfvcWbeba/Assimil_German_With_Ease.html

Good luck... !


Do you still have the audios? Could you send them to me, please?


I'm compiling a list of resources that everyone can refer back to here - https://www.duolingo.com/comment/24336702 ... it has more than just audio, but I hope you find useful and interesting things on there that will help your learning too! Please take a look.
