Chatterbug's Long Story Short

Social Creatures - Episode 4 - Learn German


Long Story Short's episode 4 is ‘Social Creatures’, meaning ‘Soziale Wesen’. What if you found a friend without knowing it? Astrid finds herself navigating life in a foreign country, language and social scene - but you’re only the ‘new kid’ for so long.

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: 1.6.2 - Vacation and parties; 1.6.3 - Talking about the past week; 1.8.2 - Public holidays; and 1.9.3 - Asking for information.
