A great and fun way to practice any language is via interactive activities/stories and audios, which allow you wherever you are – at home, on the train, at work (during your break time), at the local library, on the toilet 🙂 …- to get a quick daily fix of German, even if you only have 5 minutes! And I can assure you, it is worth your while.
A fantastic site for self study is the Learn German section of the Deutsche Welle. There you will find activities and mini series suitable for your level (beginner (A1), elementary (A2), intermediary (B1 B2), advanced (C1, C2). You can also take a short placement test to check which level is right for you. For more information about the different levels or the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages click here.
Courses you can choose from:
The A1 audio course “Mission Europe” – learn German (or French or Polish!) with action packed crime stories; the A1 – A2 Audiotrainer, allows you to expand your vocabulary by different topics and to improve your pronunciation; tip: download the podcast on to your smart-phone or i-pod! the A1 – B1 audio course “Deutsch – warum nicht?“, has 104 lessons with dialogues and exercises. The A1-B1: Interaktiv – is an online innovative course for independent learners. And if you like to brush up your business German try the Audio course “Marktplatz” (B2), which contains 26 episodes!
