What the students say...

Fiona MacPhail, mother of teenager Indy

"Dear Barbara, I just wanted to thank you and Sonja for soldiering on during this horrendous time. I know it is so very difficult to remain enthusiastic and motivated at the moment and having the lessons and indeed your newsletter brings much needed reminders of normality. Having Indy’s mind expanded and being able to continue learning German has made such a difference.Huge thank you and stay healthy," (Email received on 1 April 2020).

Alison Booths, keen traveller to Germany and Austria (A2/B1 1:1)

"I started learning German just to pick up a few basic phrases for holidays, but have found the lessons so stimulating and enjoyable that I keep on signing up for more. The teaching is excellent - varied, lively and effective. I can't think of any ways in which the classes could be improved."

When learning German the daily contact with the language is one of the key elements of success. I started the Facebook project "Das deutsche Wort des Tages" with the busy student in mind. 30-50 seconds allow you to just watch the video and pick up the main word. 3-5 minutes allow you to watch it over again and learn a few related words of the same post.

The world is changing and language is a reflection of those changes. As for German the Leibniz-Institut für Deutsche Sprache regularly updates an A-Z of corona related vocab, from Abstandslinie to Zoomfatigue. I hope you will enjoy reading my article on some of those new terms!

Do you spend, like myself, too much time in front of a screen at the moment? I started to introduce short breaks in my working day listening to my favourite podcast Spanish with Vincente. And with sunshine I sit on my balcony. This inspired me to write my next blog on podcasts for students of German. I mailed my team and a few students. They came back with an eclectiv mix of ideas, of which I will present my highly subjective choice in the following article.
