👌

I’ve been listening on and off for years and think it’s a great supplemental resource. Definitely have used phrases and tips I’ve learned here in the real world. Und außerdem, habe ich gerade eine Reise nach Garmisch-Partinkirchen und Bamberg gemacht, die kompletttt durch den Podcast inspiriert wurde! Super Empfehlung, danke sehr 👌

Great for those with some German background

My wife is German and my children have been raised bilingual. I’ve developed a basic understanding of German just from exposure around the home. Recently, I decided to become fluent in German. My current level is A2 per a Goethe Institut test. I’ve been looking for as many resources as possible to help me learn German. This podcast is perfect for me. This goes beyond simple “travel” German. Grammar is actually discussed as well. The way the hosts break down the sentences and review vocabulary is very helpful.

Genug mit Genau already!

Put off by the weird „sound“ of this program from the Tyrolian Heimat Musik intro to the supplicating Scottish host with the redundant „genau“ after each „English“ translation of simple German words. Genug mit Genau already. It sounds stupid. Scottish Guy: „heute morgen“ means „this morning“. German woman: Genau. Scottish Guy: fahren means „to drive“. German woman: Genau.
This guy: Genug mit Genau. Scottish Guy: that means „enough of the word ‚genau‘“. German woman. Exactly!
