The app gives you access to all episodes aired in our weekly program News in Slow German. You can listen to the episodes online and you can also download audio files and flashcards to your mobile device so you could have access to them offline. PDF viewer is needed to view PDF downloads.
In our program we discuss the Weekly News, German grammar, and German expressions, and much more in simplified German at a slow pace so that you can understand almost every word and sentence. We emphasize all aspects of language learning from listening comprehension, rapid vocabulary expansion, exposure to German grammar and common idiomatic expressions, to pronunciation practice and interactive grammar exercises. With this tool you do not actually need to have an extensive vocabulary to start listening and reading our material. Your vocabulary will expand rapidly and naturally and your comprehension skills will also improve dramatically.
Ratings and Reviews
Playback speed feature
This is overall a great product… I’ve used it on and off for years. I think what it is really missing is the playback speed feature that used to exist many years ago. I see that they have re-introduced it online but it is still not integrated into the app. Adding that would make us a five star product. After a certain level of comprehension is reached the playback becomes frustratingly slow to listen to. Being able to toggle between different speeds is a great learning tool.
difficulty logging on
When I try to login using the Apple app it tells me my password is wrong when I try to login using google play it gives me my son’s device but not the option to choose mine. It is all very frustrating.
I have deleted all 4 slow news apps- it’s hard enough to listen to biased, fake news in English.😏
