You’ve been learning German for a few years and you feel ready to watch the news in German.
Where do you start?
If you feel your German isn’t good enough to watch the news as they are shown on German TV, then try the news for Children.
ZDF has daily news programmes lasting 10 minutes and are aimed at German children.
Neun einhalb are weekly news for children. If you click on “zur Sendung” you’ll get taken to the latest video, which lasts nine and a half minutes, hence the title.
Kiraka – dein Kinderradiokanal has news to listen and read.
Klaro – Nachrichten für Kinder has weekly news spoken by German children for you to listen to.
If you don’t want to listen or watch German news aimed at German children – even if they are not easy – try these:
Deutsche Welle has daily news (except Sundays) for you to listen to slowly and also to read at the same time.
Euronews has news to watch and read as well.
