Great for the intermediate student
This podcast is great for the intermediate student. It provides ample opportunity to train the ear to listen. I've used many tapes in my studies and they all seem to stress speaking but not listening. The opposite is true here. Many different voices and tones are used. The lessons are interesting and the conversations are naturally paced and not dumbed down. Probably too advanced for the beginner but I've found this podcast to be very helpful.
Every story is entertaining and explains little by little how German works. It is so practical to just have them available when you have to wait for something, before going to bed, during dishes. It helps me to build up my listening skills.
Thank you so much
