Living in a foreign country where you don't know the language can sometimes feel like living in a bubble at least when it comes to knowing what is going on in the news locally. I normally found the evening news depressing back home, but still had many other sources of information.
A couple sources for those of you living in Germany and wanting German news (in English!)......
The Spiegel - a popular German magazine has a small condensed English version on their website
The Local - German news in English
I'm still trying to read the German newspapers, watch films and listening to German radio in an effort to learn the language...honestly I naively thought learning German would be easier. HA!
