Check this website here out taken from a Business English Google search and find other sites of your interest.

Listening comprehension of German

Various episodes and various texts – more than 400 – with different levels from A1 to C1 with exercises and a PDF to read while you can listen. Very well done by 2 ladies who are experienced teachers of German. Donations are possible, but generally free use of all this, a letter of thanx would be recommended.

Purpose of this BLOG

Dear Follower,

This is not my main BLOG on Education, just to promote German Online for Free …

Having worked for the Goethe-Institut in Sydney and Brisbane as the German Language Adviser, I feel obliged to promote the Learning of German Online further and see this at my hobby at present.

The Podcast Business German is under construction and will be published on the Udemy Platform, where you will find a free taster course of German and my course Master Your German, which requires an entry level of B1 – fees apply.

My Business German Podcast BGP is on

Kindly yours from the Gold Coast in Burleigh QLD
