Talking Fussball Podcast

It’s another jam-packed episode of Bundesliga goodness courtesy of the Talking Fussball Munich crew, in which they kick of the show by discussing the surprise Bayern defeat to Augsburg and express their opinions on the much-asked question of the weekend: ‘Was Pep arrogant in fielding the side he did?’. Next, the pod trio get their teeth stuck into the relegation battle once again, as they shake their collective heads in disbelief at the excitement of it all. Can Braunschweig survive following their 3-0 win against Hannover 96? Did we really witness Heiko Westermann score a wonder-goal? And have Stuttgart got what it takes to stay in the league following their own win against Freiburg at the weekend? We’ve got our top 3 players, a new Sprechen Sie Fussball word and the obligatory Champions League preview talk, as Bayern and Dortmund prepare to do battle in Europe’s premier competition. All this and much more on this week’s all new Talking Fussball Episode!

It’s spring now.  Go take a walk.

Sometimes you discover the most on foot.  deutsch, bitte explores Berlin on foot and takes pictures of the details that pop out along the way.

How to get married in Germany.

In case you’re into that kind of thing.  Find it over on the myGermanExpert blog.

Oh crap, Spreepark has been sold.

I don’t like the sound of this at all:

“‘The district wants a small, fine family park. But the old rides scrap has to go,’ he said, presumably before emitting an evil laugh.  Indeed the senate and district both want a ‘high-quality, eco-friendly culture and leisure park,’ according to Der Tagesspiegel.”  Read more on Abandoned Berlin.

Our blogs are usually in English–we want people who haven’t had the chance to learn German to be able to learn about life in Germany–but in cooperation with Study-In.de, we are going to share a series of blogs written in German.  Because we know some of you would really like to get some more practice.  So give this post, written by a Colombian student in Germany, a try and let us know how it goes in the comments!  Happy reading.

Es ist schwer Deutsche kennen zu lernen oder eine Freundschaft mit einem Deutschen zu schließen. Wir alle haben davon gehört, es wahrscheinlich selbst erlebt. Ich weiß , dass es auch anders gehen kann. Vorurteile sind keine Regeln. Ich will nur meine Gedanken mitteilen, über die Gründe, warum viele Ausländer so einen Eindruck bekommen.

Can Schalke 04 actually nick 2nd spot off their bitter rivals Dortmund? And could Mainz or Gladbach grab the Champions League qualification spot? Finally, it’s tears all round as Jon takes a look back at his favorite moments on the podcast and bids his chums goodbye, the night before he is set to leave Munich.
