Fun Movie Series on YouTube Made for Beginning German Learners!

Hi! I just thought I'd share this fun movie series I found on YouTube called Nicos Weg for anyone learning German. It's a series of 3 movies starting with A1 level and gradually progressing to A2 and B1. It's made by the DW and it's actually really entertaining!

It's about a young "Spanish" guy (I think the actor is actually German) that runs away to Germany, but he loses his belongings and has to rely on the help of friendly Germans to find his way.

Throughout the series he is learning German starting at a beginning level, so everyone talks to him with simple language. I really enjoyed it because I didn't feel quite ready to start watching shows on Netflix when I hadn't even learned all the verb tenses.

Enjoy!

On the Deutsche Welle website, there is a complete course designed around the Nicos Weg video: https://learngerman.dw.com/en/overview

It's an excellent free course that I highly recommend.

Vielen Dank!

I will definitely watch the movie and also check out the free course mwbran1 indicated on his comment. I've tried numerous times to watch movies in german on Netflix but I feel my brain just adopts the subtitle as its main reference and forgets the sounds. Something more basic and entertaining is largely welcomed!

The comedy series called Extr@ is also good for beginners at an A2 or B1 level. (Nicos Weg though is good for A1)

It's about a guy who goes to Germany to stay with some girls and cant speak the language well at first, his German gets better as the series goes along. (I'm an A2 level and I've got through the episodes well and only really struggled at the last couple of episodes)
