Deutsch -- Warum Nicht?

Hi everyone,

I wanted to let you know about a great resource on Deutsche Welle's website. It is an audio program called Deutsch -- Warum Nicht. There are four levels, each with 26 episodes. The episodes are about 15 minutes long and each has a transcript and a downloadable .pdf of exercises. Each level also has a vocabulary appendix.

I found them very fun, informative about German culture, and helpful. Here is the link:

I hope you enjoy it!

It's a good resource that I also use! If you want to try other sites English-based have a look at this my post It's in Italian (my mother-language) but don't worry you can only have a look to the links.

i have just finished the first level right now ., it's very good course

I just started listening from season 1 because although my reading is pretty good my listening is not. I wish I had started listening to this earlier as the first few lessons are a bit easy when you're already half way through the German tree.

So if anyone isn't sure, jump in, it starts very easy.

You are right that the first couple of lessons are VERY basic, but then it starts to get interesting. Even my German husband was listening to find out what happened next! It is very well done and throws in cultural lessons as well.

Thank you!

Hey lorelei120,

Thanks for the recommendation, the podcast is really helpful. One question: each pdf has a bunch of exercises but there is no answer key. Do you have any idea about where to find the answer key?

July 2, 2018

Yes -- there is an answer key in the appendix of each Series. In Series 1, it is appendix 4. Here is a link: I hope this helps!
