Free German Language Audio Course: Downloadable Podcast for Beginner (A1) to Intermediate (B1) Levels

Download a Free German Audiocast from Deutsche Welle and the Goethe Institut

The Deutsch - warum nicht? podcast is the result of a joint venture from Deutsche Welle and the Goethe Institut to create a free German audio course for beginner to intermediate learners... back in 1991! As such, some of the content, namely using German Marks as the monetary unit, is slightly dated.

That said, the repacked and freshly released four-part downloadable audio podcast boasts a total of 104 free German lessons with accompanying exercises. The learning material unfolds as a story about a journalism student, Andreas, and his invisible ex-girlfriend.

This German language learning audiocast starts at the total beginner level (A1) and progresses - at an advanced pace - to the intermediate level (B1).
