Now you can improve or maintain your German with Presse und Sprache, the monthly audio magazine for people who love German.
Published twelve times a year from Bremen in Germany, Presse und Sprache not only helps you improve your fluency, it also helps you understand what it is like to live in German-speaking countries.
The 12-page newspaper is packed full of lively articles and in-depth interviews about German-speaking countries and Germanic culture. The texts are taken from leading German-speaking newspapers and adapted and supplemented with original material from the Presse und Sprache editorial team. There are regular features on a range of topics including travel, business, the arts, cinema, politics, sport, cuisine, popular culture, plus profiles on leading personalities and issues making the news.
Every feature is carefully chosen and graded for difficulty so you can assess your progress (CEFR levels: A2-C2). Alongside each article in German key words and phrases are glossed into simple German appropriate to that level. Each article will keep you up to date with idiomatic expressions as well as practical information about contemporary life in Germany, Austria and German-speaking Switzerland.
Choose from the 'Subscription Options' on this page to receive the newspaper in printed form to your designated address, or in digital form (PDF) to your email address - both options are at the same price. Alternatively, as a Premium Option, you can add the digital version of the newspaper to a print subscription for just an additional 50% of the price of the print subscription.
The accompanying MP3 audio download is the perfect tool for improving listening comprehension and building confidence in speaking German. Put together by a team of professional narrators, the 25-minutes of audio provides well-paced readings of the key articles from the printed newspaper. The audio component of the subscription will enable you to improve significantly your ability to understand German as it's really spoken.
The included Presse und Sprache PDF downloadable Study Supplement is ideal for training reading and listening comprehension, oral and written expression, vocabulary, grammar, and much more. It provides you with varied self-marking exercises for self-study/classroom lessons that enable you (or your students) to prepare for internationally-respected DaF (German as a Foreign Language) exams such as TELC certificates or the Goethe-Institute's certificates of language attainment.
What's more, because Presse und Sprache is a periodical, your study of German is always maintained and you won’t forget what you’ve worked so hard to learn; this is why Presse und Sprache has become an invaluable, authentic resource for thousands of teachers and students alike.
