You won't hear this stuff anywhere else!!
I needed to pick up some German very quickly for an acting job - I wanted to find whole sentences I could babble on in to add atmosphere to club scenes and outdoor gatherings in Berlin for a tv show I work on, but all I kept finding were the same old, same old approaches to language learning - grammar, survival sentences about finding hotels and bathrooms and ordering dinner - but then I found these awesome, fun, spicy podcasts filled with useful sentences, phrases, and great idioms that had me speaking like a native in mere minutes. I really enjoyed the range of "real world" type sentences I learned as well as the advantage of getting to hear clearly from the wonderfully eloquent Julia how to pronounce them, and then the repetition by Mark, which often clarified what I was hearing. It was made even more interesting by the discussions they would have about the similarities and differences to English, the possible etymology of the idiomatic expressions, and then made more useful by the introduction of a phrase first, followed by then showing how to construct a sentence using the phrase. Mark & Julia clearly love language and have great presence - it's fun just spending time with them. So overall, a great approach to getting some language in a hurry - thanks so much for this wonderful resource!
