Coffee Break German has new content for advanced learners!
Updated: Jan 31, 2022
One of the best ways to start learning a language is by listening to specially developed podcasts that introduce the learners to the most essential vocabulary, train their listening comprehension and help develop good pronunciation. There are hundreds of language-oriented podcasts for every level available on platforms like Spotify, Castbox, or Pocket Casts, and most of them come completely for free.
The best and most accessible podcasts for beginner language learners in our opinion are produced by Coffee Break Languages - and you have a choice between French, Spanish, German, Italian, Chinese, Swedish, or English. The episodes developed for each of these languages take the learner from the beginner to a higher intermediate level and feature a native speaker chatting to a language learner, teaching them the language as they go from one episode to another.
Recently, CoffeeBreak released new content for advanced German learners with their Coffee Break German Advanced series. In the podcast episodes, native speaker Andrea and learner of German Mark guide you through the intricacies of the language. This podcast is aimed at learners working at B1/B2 level, and the hosts cover grammatical structures and topics appropriate to this level. In each episode, Mark and Andrea discuss a language point, and then you'll listen to a dialogue that features examples of that specific language point, helping you consolidate what you've learned.
The episodes at this level cover the gender of German pronouns, the use of Past Perfect tense, using pronouns welche and diese, the genitive case, and using the infinitive with zu, among other more complex grammar points. The entertaining and light-hearted way the podcast hosts present these points and interact makes learning German fun, easy, and very effective!
