Pukka German Inspiration On arrival in Freiburg, I realised that in order to properly integrate and enjoy living out here, I was going to have to learn German. Immediately I devoted considerable energy to learning the German basics as quickly as possible. I used language learning software, CDs, a multitude of books, online resources and also took German language classes. In fact Lisa was quite taken aback by my motivation and she worried that I had some kind of compulsive disorder that she'd failed to pick up on during our time in Scotland! On arrival in Freiburg, I realised that in order to properly integrate and enjoy living out here, I was going to have to learn German. Immediately I devoted considerable energy to learning the German basics as quickly as possible. I used language learning software, CDs, a multitude of books, online resources and also took German language classes. In fact Lisa was quite taken aback by my motivation and she worried that I had some kind of compulsive disorder that she'd failed to pick up on during our time in Scotland! Unfortunately, I soon noticed that the language I learnt from text books was very different to the colourful language that I heard being used socially. It frustrated me that despite all the time and energy I'd invested to improve my German, I battled to understand what seemed to be the most entertaining conversations. I also felt cramped in my ability to express my personality and bring humour into conversation. It didn't take much to realise that it was the idiomatic language, the colloquial expressions and equally important, the German slang that I was missing. Fortunately for me, I had Lisa who not only did me the favour of speaking with me in German from my first week here, but she also explained many of the useful German expressions, that my private studies hadn't exposed me to. This obvious difference between textbook German and the language used by a large percentage of the Germans I was meeting is what inspired the creation of the Pukka German podcas[...]

GermanLingQ.com German LingQ Podcast with Free iTunes iPod MP3 Audio using Linguist Method by Steve Kaufmann

Thu, 28 Feb 2008 22:25:58 +0000

A smiling native German speaking woman in Langenzersdorf, Lower Austria, Austria Claus Rebler https://www.flickr.com/photos/zunami/3712151441/in/faves-129692546@N06/ Summary The LingQ language-learning platform is among the most intentionally-created foreign language education products available. Developed by reknowned polyglot linguist Steve Kaufmann and company, LingQ is an excellent way to learn German using materials you choose yourself! In fact, this is where LingQ excels as an educational platform because students can import any license-free content they want to base their lessons around. This means that the students decide what subjects and topics they wish to learn about based on professional needs and/or personal interests. The particular podcast highlighted in this article is GermanLingQ, a roughly weekly podcast with mp3 audio content for German language learners. Transcripts of the podcasts are available through LingQ, and can also serve as learning content themselves. One additional advantage of the LingQ system is that for a single subscription, you can use their web-based platform to learn ten languages (and growing) including Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Swedish. From Website What is GermanLingQ? First of all, the name itself (which is pronounced German Link) needs a little explaining. The first part, “German”, is fairly obvious since we teach German. LingQ is the name of our online learning system which you can find at LingQ.com. At LingQ you’ll study many different languages in a fun, community atmosphere. The “Ling” in LingQ comes from TheLinguist.com the people behind LingQ. Lastly, the “Q” is important because it forms the speech bubble in our logo and throughout our site and because it makes “lingq” sound like “link” (we think!) which is what our system does for you. At GermanLingQ... . we LingQ you to a world of real German content . we LingQ you to our revolutionary learning tools . we LingQ you to a community of fellow German learners Our podcasts may contain interviews, articles, or audiobook excerpts but are most often just general conversations in German. We will usually talk about topics of general interest. Please do send us feedback and topic requests. We’re always happy to hear from you. After you listen to the podcast, sign up for a free account at LingQ (l-i-n-g-q.com) and study the full transcript using LingQ's revolutionary learning tools. At LingQ, you may also want to submit writing for correction or join live 1 on 1 and group discussions with our tutors. Plus you will find thousands more podcasts with transcript. Come and find out what LingQ is all about! Of course, even if you don’t decide to become a member, you can continue listening to the podcasts as long as you like. Visit LingQ.com [...]
