German T-Shirt Giveaway!
Note: The T-shirts are all spoken for. Thanks!

Uwe Kind has released a new CD, Lingotech Deutsch, that is very popular in school classes.

To celebrate Uwe's new CD, the first 3 people to order Lingotech Deutsch or any other Uwe Kind title will receive a "Talking T", a unique T-shirt created by Uwe and printed with German phrases. I'll update my blog when the t-shirts are all spoken for. Note: all shirts are now spoken for.

You can also read an interview I did a while back with Uwe (in German only).

Viel SpaƟ!

Free German Lessons via Podcast

For teens and adults wishing to hear some beginning German, try Radio Lingua's free podcasts, One Minute German and A Flavour of German.

I always recommend that German learners use a variety of inputs, from books to music and audio to DVD. These podcasts look like a great way to do just that.

Free German Alphabet Flashcards - Woohoo!

We've got a new set of flashcards online - this time we've done Das Alphabet. This happened on the spur of the moment. I was practicing some letters with my 4 year old and grabbed a camera to take his picture - he's such a ham!

He loved having his picture taken so much, he did the entire alphabet. We added the audio from Dad who is our resident native speaker and some representative words and presto - we've got new flashcards to share with you!

We hope you enjoy these flashcards as well as the other sets - please let me know if you have any comments or corrections.
