As you know I’m always on the lookout for ways to improve my German, especially my ability to understand spoken German.
The website Young Germany has a section that is full of great resources to help improve your German. One of these is a web series called Jojo sucht das Glück. The language used in this webseries I would class as upper A2 – B1, but it has subtitles which makes it accessible to people who are able to read German far better than they can understand it, like me. The story is a little formulaic and the acting is at best quite wooden, but it is a fun way to pick up new words and practice your listening skills if only for the amusement value of all the bad luck the main character Jojo has. Each episode is only 3 minutes long, so you can watch a couple of episodes during your lunch break or whenever you have a couple of minutes spare.
If you are aware of any other web series created for beginner/intermediate speakers of German, please let me know and I will add them to this post. It would be great to create a list of fun resources.
