We have a lot more new people in the group, so I decided to post some links that might help you expand your German vocabulary, improve grammar, or for the Expats to find the consulates and more. Find out what we’re all talking about. This discussion will be pinned so everyone can add more over time.
First and foremost, if you’re just learning German sign up here for the free daily German word of the day:

Also, for those of you who enjoy "Pod-learning", Deutsche Welle offers a daily news podcast called Langsam gesprochene Nachrichten. It's for those who wish to learn German, therefore they read the news and speak very s-l-o-w-l-y! LOL!
Depending on the person's level, it may still be tough to understand everything but I think it's helpful to hear German spoken on a regular basis, even if you don't understand everything.
