Die Deutsche Zeitungen
I want to download some German news apps, so I can have some daily practice. (And I don't live in a world city so I can't just buy Der Spiegel in person)
Can anyone summarise the main German newspapers for me? The more sensible newspapers that is, not the sensationalist shouty ones.
This is not the place to discuss politics, but for example, everyone in the UK knows that The Guardian is a big left wing paper, and The Times is a big right wing paper. I'd just like some background.
Just a short note that I would agree with most of the political labels there.
If you reside outside Germany, you should definitely check out the online library of the Goethe Institut. They offer a range of major German daily newspapers (FAZ, TAZ, Die Zeit, Die Welt & Sueddeutsche) for free. They also offer a selection of magazines like Focus, WiWo, Spiegel, Dein Spiegel (very helpful if your German is still at beginner level), Buch Aktuell, Merian and many more. Also, If you prefer a printed version, you can always visit the nearest Goethe Institute (that was what I used to do back in the days when there was no internet)
You can use the application of "Deutsche Welle" news agency, it covers many languages also German and it is a German new agency.
Why dont you check der Spiegel online or zeit or dw nachrichten i always check these news sites
That's a good idea - I downloaded Die Zeit app but it looks like subscription only. I just wanted some cultural understanding/background :)
I can also recommend the Wirtschaftswoche (if you're interested in economic stuff). Politically, they are somewhat biased towards a laissez-faire capitalism, but the articles on economic subjects are usually well-written and thoroughly researched.
If you're interested in tech/computer/internet stuff have a look at Heise
Spiegel online has become somewhat sensational in the last years, but it's one of the major influencers of German internet discussions (and, in my opinion, it's still of higher quality than its direct competitors Stern and Focus).
Not a newspaper, but if you're interested in science you may find something among the German science blogs.
Thank you then do you blogs about startup i mean business startup?
Ich bedanke mich von dir für Hilfe
Sorry, I don't read any startup blogs on a regular basis, so I can't help you with that.
The wikipedia article covers the main information sources. If you would be more precise about the contents you are interested in, it would be easier to give you specific advice. Personally, I always go to sueddeutsche.de, if I want to see what is happening right now: politics, science, culture, sports...
The only German newspaper worth reading is the TAZ (left-wing) (http://www.taz.de/). It's the only paper I could recommend. And also they are usually among the better ones when it comes to grammar and orthography. "Der Standard" (liberal left-wing but also neo-liberal), "Die Presse" (conservative), "Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung" (moderate left) and "Süddeutsche" (liberal left) are also "quality papers". Journalism in Germany and Austria is very bad sometimes. I'd recommend to stay away especially from "Bild", "Kronen Zeitung" and "Österreich" because they are full of populistic bulls**t and have a history of printing false stories paired with butchering the German language. I'm also quite wary about "Der Spiegel" because I've seen too many grammatical errors in it.
I lese jeden tag "der spiegel" auf meinem handy. Es ist kostenloss und sehr praktisch.
