At this location the Deutsche Welle offers “langsam gesprochene Nachrichten.” In addition, a transcript of thebroadcast is available, as well as a glossary of terms commonly used in news reports. You can subscribe to this program via RSS-Feed or iTunes.



Twice a week the Deutsche Welle provides easily accessible news reports that have both a reading and a listeing component. Additionally, the website provides a list of vocabulary and questions that help you determine your reading and listening comprehension.


This is a wonderful resource for cultural programs. My favorite section is the podcast from “Radio Wissen”: Here you can find hundreds of 30-minutes documentaries on a diverse range of cultural topics.


This is the best place to listen to German news. Sunday is a special treat: It is the week in review in 30-minute blocks dedicated to different aspects of public life. Scroll down a little bit and look on the right to find “B5 Aktuell Live Hören!”


Another great resource for German cultural radio programs. In contrast to Bayern 2, they also offer podcasts of music concerts.
