CBG Travel Diaries 2.01 | Das beste Geschenk, dass man sich wünschen kann

Welcome to Season 2 of the Coffee Break German Travel Diaries! This time, we’re joining Karl, Birgit and friends as they take a river cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest, through Germany and Austria to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. Throughout the journey, they’ll sail on 3 rivers through 4 countries and see many cities while aboard. In this very first episode of the series, the couple leave Oberhausen and arrive in Amsterdam before boarding the ship. We hear many nautical words and phrases, river names, and vocabulary related to celebrations. As always, Coffee Break German hosts, Mark and Andrea will be on hand to help you understand the language featured in Karl’s travel diary entries. Viel Spaß an Bord!

Our premium version includes lesson notes with additional examples and explanations of the language in each lesson, and a pronunciation practice video to help you improve your speaking. Click here to access the course on the Coffee Break Academy.
