You may or may not know that SoundCloud’s head office is based in Berlin.  With staff moving from all over the world to Berlin there is always the topic of learning German.  Luckily we can all learn a little easier now that Deutsche Welle’s Learn German podcasts are on SoundCloud!  So if you ever wanted to get to grips with basic vocabulary, listen to the news in German at a slower pace, or get your ‘word of the week’, then this podcast is your route to German fluency! Or at least a step in the right direction!

Firstly, Wort der Woche, or ‘Word of the Week’. Up your vocab game here!

Want to listen to the news in German, but can’t keep up with the standard speed of a news reporter? Then Langsam gesprochene Nachrichten might help. It’s Deutsche Welle’s news read in German, but at slower.

Another of the Deutsche Welle’s podcast modules is Alltagsdeutsch – audio features on every day topics out of Germany. For example, why your Opa and Oma (Grandpa and Grandma) would start using Facebook.

SoundCloud Voices this week takes a look at the wide variety of radio shows that CBC have been uploading to their Radio One account. As the public station for Canada, with Radio One being the news and information channel, you can count on their being some interesting spoken word content. Here’s a break down of some of the main shows they have been sharing.

Firstly we have Ideas, hosted by Paul Kennedy. As a show that describes it itself as a radio program on contemporary thought, you know you can expect some interesting topics, such as philosophy, science, music, religion and history. Here’s a recent show about Bees.

Next up is Q. Hosted by Jian Ghomeshi, it’s the national arts magazine show for CBC and is also syndicated all over the U.S by the guys at Public Radio International. You can expect celebrities and figures in the entertainment industry, yet they still encourage topics and conversations on broader topics such as politics, business, sports and music. Take a listen to this show featuring Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe.

If you like technology and Culture then Spark should be your show de choix. Hosted by Nora Young, it’s quite a unique show as the team encourages the audience to send in suggestions for the show, write on the blog, and even record interviews which they use on the show. You could even use SoundCloud for that!

CBC’s also have a magazine show called Day 6 which looks into an eclectic mix of the week’s stories. Host Brent Bambury brings the audience, opinionated columnists, provocative guests and humorous takes on the stories people are talking about. Take a listen to Saturday’s show which deals with the following intriguing topics – Hate Music, Olympic Mascot Creator, Food on Mars and Kidnapping Celebrities on Egyptian Reality TV to name a few.

There are so many more shows to listen to on the CBC account, such as Writers & Company, As It Happens, Babel and The Current. So start following the CBC Radio One account for your regular spoken word goodness!
