Staying Connected

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
http://www.spiegel.de/international/

The Local - German news in English
http://www.thelocal.de/

DW
http://www.dw.de/

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!

Cheers!
