Our Editor's Take

The Coffee Break German podcast offers German language lessons for beginners and others. Hosts Mark and Thomas promise listeners will soon be speaking with confidence. From pronouns to prepositions, their grammar sessions help students sound like locals. Anyone ready to start speaking Deutsch may enjoy the podcast.

Thomas and Mark understand the challenges of learning a new language. They're both native German speakers who had to learn English. In season one, they begin with the basics. In season two, teacher Andrea and cultural correspondent Julia join. Andrea and Mark then lead season three, which is for more experienced students. The podcast hosts want their listeners to do more than memorize phrases. Instead, they hope to help them understand how the language works and what they say.

The first ten episodes of season one teach podcast listeners the essentials. They learn greetings, introductions, and fundamental questions and answers. Listeners can soon discuss their families, origins, and how to find their way. They'll also learn numbers and payment phrases. The next time one visits a German-speaking area and goes to the market, they can ask the vendor about prices in German.

Each episode of Coffee Break German offers specific lessons that advance learners step by step. The hosts also discuss important German topics. One is the German Shepherd dog and its origins. These famous canines are excellent police, rescue, and therapy dogs. Listeners also hear about exciting travel options, like the Glacier-Express. The train carries passengers between St. Moritz and Zermatt, Switzerland. The episode offers a fun and informative vocabulary lesson along with travel aspirations.

With the Coffee Break German podcast, the language-learning adventure only begins at home. Soon, students might be visiting German-speaking countries and chatting with locals. Anytime is a good time to grab a coffee, join Mark and Thomas, and embrace the linguistic journey.
