The Coffee Break German Magazine
The Coffee Break German Magazine is a 10-episode series for intermediate to advanced learners of German. Presented by native speakers Andrea and Olivera and learner Mark, each episode will present cultural topics and grammar study in an enjoyable way, allowing you to build your vocabulary and increase your range of expression. It is recommended that learners complete at least Coffee Break German Season 1 and Season 2 before taking this course.
Each episode has three sections:
- Study of a text: Olivera reads a text on a cultural topic and then together Andrea and Mark discuss the language in this text, focusing on interesting points of vocabulary and grammar;
- Listener’s question: Andrea answers a question from a listener on an aspect of learning German;
- Das Sahnehäubchen: to end the episode, Olivera presents “the icing on the cake”, an additional piece of interesting vocabulary or an idiomatic expression which will help you sound more like a native speaker.
