Chatterbug's Long Story Short

A Long Shot - Episode 9 - Learn German


Long Story Short's Episode 9 is ‘A Long Shot’, which can be translated to a similar idiomatic, German phrase ‘Ein Schuss ins Blaue'. When we finally find a sense of belonging - what are the lengths we’ll go to to keep that?

Stay tuned after the reading to join host, Helena, and German learner, Danielle, for a deep dive into the story. They break down it’s cultural context and German dialogue. Then hear from Inda and Stefie, two of Chatterbug’s German teachers, for a quick-fire memory technique round, Grammatically Speaking. This episode’s story was read by Berlin-based actor Madlen Meyer. 

This season’s episodes focus on talking points we’ve found to be the most valuable for A1 German learners. Our podcast coincides with topics in Chatterbug’s curriculum. This episode, look out for units on: 1.4.3 Asking for Directions; 1.5.1 Shopping and Customer Service; 1.6.1 Talking About the Past; and 1.7.1 Going to the Doctor.
