I recommend this to all English to German learners.

Apologies if this is old news to the forums, I did not see a post about it. But when I took German in college I found this tv show to be a HUGE help. It's called Fokus Deutsch.

Made for PBS by a professor of German, it was designed to assist in learning German so it's a little more basic than jumping into a German soap opera or something like that where they may use slang, speak too quickly, etc. The story lines aren't the most riveting, but it really helps immerse you in the language and culture. Whether you understand what exactly is being said or not, it still helps because you figure it out.

Personally it helped me in learning the grammar and pronunciations quickly and I have recommended watching the show to everyone I've met that's learning German.

But check it out, you can find it on youtube.

Just a little mistake ;-) In German, they say "Vielen dank", not "Viele danke". Keep on learning!

So you always write vielen dank, no matter what?

Not always. "Vielen dank!" means "Thank you very much!" or "Thanks a lot!" Also, you can write "Danke sehr!" and it has the same meaning. If you simply want to say "Thank you.", you write "Danke."

I would suggest the following show as well:

It seems to be along the same lines as the description above.

They have it on YouTube as well. I love it because it is relatively easy to understand, and it has German subtitles.

This also helped me! Listening to German speaking helps me pronounce it better! http://www.bbc.co.uk/languages/german/

I watched a bunch of these about a year ago. They were quite good. I think I might watch some more when I get a chance. They are at a pretty good level for people that are past the basics stage.

Thank you for this recommendation. I know I found the "Destinos"series quite helpful when I first started learning Spanish. I was hoping that there was something like it for German for when I get enough German under my belt.
