German language learning resources

I have started a list of German language resources that I have encountered or used in my language-learning studies. It will include links to language-related resources but also thematic native German material that falls within my interests – which hopefully overlap somewhat with your interests.  This may eventually devolve into simply a collection of links to German-language material, but I think that such a list would still be helpful for beginner-intermediate students searching for easy-to-understand native material.

You can find the page here: Resources for learning German

 

Link Roundup #2 (and a German preposition tip)

The flat upstairs has been rented or sold to someone new, and renovation work will be going on for a month. Since Monday I have woken up to 100-decibel jackhammer noise from 9am till 5pm (hour-long break for lunch) and this will be going on for at least a week, if not longer. It is positively impossible to get anything done at home and I might resort to haunting a coffee shop tomorrow. I feel bad for the contractors too.

German

So simple, yet so constantly confusing! Emphasis mine:

man sagt “an der Uni“, wenn man von der Universität als Instituion spricht, also “ich studiere an der Uni/an der Fachhochschule”, etc. Man würde hier nicht sagen “ich studiere in der Uni”. Aber den Mann hast Du IN der Uni gesehen, also in dem Universitätsgebäude.
