GERMAN

Education

MyGermanClass.com

Video + subtitles + translations available on website.  A whacky way to learn German e.g. Ubel Knubels Welt - story apparently random - but in fact cleverly introducing and repeating common expressions.  Could really inspire imitation I think!

 

Fantastic site - click on audio on demand and video on demand to download resources.

Fantastic course with teacher Mark Pentleton + Kara.  Mark is a regular 'ALL' speaker and gives superb talks about best use of technology.  He covers langauge and culture in this relaxed, well thought-out series of programmes.
