Bist du fertig? Lass uns anfangen! We’re delighted to introduce to the world a new member of the Coffee Break Languages family: Coffee Break German will launch in January 2013.
Since 2006, Coffee Break Spanish and French lessons have been downloaded over 100 million times and we hope that Coffee Break German will be equally as popular among German learners throughout the world.
The tables are turned on Coffee Break Spanish and French teacher Mark in this series: he becomes the learner and is joined by native speaker Thomas and other experts in the German language, bringing you German language and culture in our 15-minute lessons. The series will be made up of forty lessons and will cover what you would expect from any Coffee Break course:
- introductions and greetings
- talking about yourself and your family
- likes and dislikes
- talking about your job
- coping with language problems
- ordering drinks and food in cafés and restaurants
- checking into a hotel
- shopping and services
- directions and travel
- illness and emergencies
- talking about the weather
- dealing with numbers, days, months
- and much more!
Of course, the whole series will be delivered in a gradual, structured way and you’ll not simply be learning words and phrases: you’ll come to understand how the German language works and be introduced to the patterns of the language with the help of our Grammar Guru. You’ll also find out more about the culture associated with the German language and we’ll bring you reports from our Cultural Correspondent who’ll share many aspects of German, Austrian and Swiss culture with you.
Coffee Break German launches in January 2013. Until then we’ll be keeping you posted with further developments here on the Radio Lingua website. Bis Januar!
