Name: Wissenschaft | Deutsche Welle

Provider: DW.DE | Deutsche Welle

Another podcast in German (let’s pretend for a minute that the semester has not started yet). This summer I attended an intensive course in German and afterwards began searching for something interesting to listen to. This is what I’d found. It is, as the name suggests, a podcast about the new developments in science and technology. Normally I wouldn’t be able to listen to something as advanced as this – my German is not that good yet – but fortunately the scientific vocabulary is fairly international, so at least I get the technical stuff. As long as the reporter is speaking I can manage reasonably well. The trouble comes when he is interviewing an expert – then that person speaks fast and I really have trouble keeping up.

Nevertheless it is something in German and the subjects interests me so I can’t complain, can I? After all, it would be incredibly stupid of me if I did not work on the language after investing so much time and effort in it.

This is not the usual raving review I write and I do like this podcast. It’s just that it is (was) summer and this is a chore – two words that don’t go well together.

P.S. I promise the next post will be about English again.
