More Resources to help you with your german!
I find this material great for practicing listening and just as another source of learning the language. I'd ask that if you have other resources, share them here :) - It's easier to find than if we just left these things in the lessons
German Courses by Deutsche Welle http://www.dw.de/learn-german/s-2469
They have, for example, a basics course in the podcast format (from A1 to B1) , the audios are short and simple, you can listen to them while driving or on the bus, they're very nice and kostenlos! http://www.dw.de/learn-german/deutsch-warum-nicht/s-2548
Deutsche Welle is one of the best resources out there, but as a podcast fan, you can also find tons of other podcasts to listen while you're running or doing any other physical activity. Just use your favorite podcast catcher and search for them. My favorites are: Slow german, Sprachbar | Deutsch Lernen, Top-Thema mit Vokabeln, NDR Info (many podcasts), Geschichte(n) hören, Lesung - Klassiker and Belle Lettres: Deutsch (video podcast). If you find yourself advanced you might try "Nilzenburgers Alice im Wunderland" ;-)
Warum Nicht is an excellent course. I wish there were as well-designed (and free) courses for all my languages!
The 'Easy German' series is pretty great. Young germans interviewing people in different cities on diverse topics, generally very engaging and humourous (although the latest one is just them sitting about slightly drunk at New Year...) with the whole thing subtitled verbatim (plus with smaller English subtitles below the German ones). A word of warning, it's not 'easy' as the name suggests - it's very much spoken at natural speed, but I feel like it's helped me a lot - http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL3936178A38BB5F87
I also find their "deutsch interaktiv" course to be very good. This is an excellent resource for A1 - B1 certificate training. It is very in-depth and I use it in conjunction with other study methods to keep track of where I am in the European Framework of Reference. ( I just surpassed A1 level!) http://www.dw.de/learn-german/deutsch-interaktiv/s-9572
Great free resources that benefit me:
http://mylanguageexchange.com/ - Great language community, basic service is free.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=air.com.hallbergryman.fabuloGerman - Great android flashcard-like app, I've been using it to practice things like numbers and colors.
Great paid resources that have helped me:
http://playinfluent.com/ - A video game that helps memory by giving a word and having you hunt down the item.
I am currently learning German words using the Fun Easy Learn app. It's completely free and you get access to over 6000 words with pictures and pronunciation by native speakers! You get to learn the words by playing various fun games. And the design is great :) Check it out!
hello every one :) i have a question and i have an aswer from you we use "ein "for macusline and "Machen"is not macusline but why can we use "ein" with "Machen" thanks for your reading :)
Do you mean "Mädchen", as in "girl"? The gender of a noun in German is not determined according to its male or female characteristics as we see them. Most nouns ending in -chen are "das", I believe.
maybe it's odd but here is my question: Optimal d or Studio d ??... i'm planning to buy one of these ... but so confused which one is the best ... any help??
