Customer Reviews

Good content but audio quality is really bad

I have been looking for a good German audio tutorial, and it seems like this one has good content and clear speaking by the participants. However, the audio quality is so bad that I cannot listen to it for more than a few seconds without my ears starting to go crazy. The right channel flickers in and out as if a cable were not connected properly during the recording or mixing, and the overall quality is that of a very low bitrate stream. I would think that DW would do much better, especially as when learning languages it is essential to hear the native speakers clearly. Someone at DW please have a look at your audio files!

Just a bit of fun

I found this podcast enjoyable. Its a fun way to start to get familiar with the language. Also I didn't find any audio issues. I am hoping that there will be a second series soon.

Fun but poor audio quality

Having taken German in high school, I found this to be a fun series for reintroduction to some basic vocabulary. (It's aimed at kids, but that's why it's fun. I bet the adult-oriented programs don't feature a computer that not only talks, but raps.) However, there are definitely audio problems -- a good example is the word "auch." It sounds like "auf" when they use it. I guess if you look at it one way, a little lack of clarity is more realistic anyways.
