I want you to train your listening comprehension with authentic audio materials. Therefore, I gave several Germans a simple keyword to see what story they would associate with that word. The result are over 200 audio files from female and male speakers. Some of them speak only for a couple of seconds, others for several minutes. Some use easier language, some more difficult words.
And don’t worry if you do not get everything. When you listen, it is not important that you understand every single word. Use the recordings to try to grasp the main idea of what the person is saying. Listen to the same recording several times. As you make your way through the course and as time passes, you will see that you will understand more and more. Enjoy!
