Audio Texts from Podbean

The easiest way to get the episodes of this podcast onto your mobile device is to paste this code (http://germanisland.podbean.com/feed/) into a podcast app such as the free Apple Podcasts app or another, more elaborate app such as Downcast. When you tap „Add manually“ and type in the feed code above, you will be asked whether you wish to subscribe. Once downloaded, the text of each audio will appear on your device, so that you will get the multimedia experience of hearing and reading at the same time.

Most episodes below come with a downloadable PDF file, which you can use to check the meaning of the vocabulary and process any new or unfamiliar words. Use a dictionary, underline, highlight, write your own sentences in the margins – all of these tasks will help you to process the language; but the listening, more than anything else, will make it stick.

Some recordings below come in two versions – very slow and at a normal speed, though not as fast as conversation. The slow version will help you to master the pronunciation. Once you can hear the slow version and understand it, listen to the faster version. Listen to the faster version several times, on different days. Each listening will seal the vocabulary in your memory.
