I’m always interested in finding out about the viewpoints of visitors from Germany!
In August 2016 I had the opportunity to meet and interview Nicole from Berlin. She is a fan of Morrissey, founder and lead singer of Manchester band, the Smiths. Warum? – why she was in Manchester? Listen to the interview to find out.
I recorded the interview – das Interview – on the street in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, where she was staying. She expressed a very clear opinion on the city. What was it?
I asked the usual questions that we practice at beginner and post-beginner level. Topics include name, spelling, where she’s from, – Beruf – career, Geschwister – brothers and sisters. I asked a few additional questions about her visit.
Listening to interviews using a familiar set of questions is a very useful way to learn the language. You are hearing a mixture of familiar questions with some new information.
Das Interview dauert nur 59 (neununfünfzig) Sekunden – the interview lasts only 59 seconds! I’m sorry the sound quality is not very good, but the language is clear – die Sprache ist klar.
