Go to this web­site or – for older pro­gram­mes – to this one.  Choo­se a topic that you are inte­rested in and lis­ten to the pod­cast WITHOUT loo­king at the tran­script. 

Lis­ten to the pod­cast again and stu­dy the tran­script.

Now stu­dy the bold words and their Eng­lish explana­ti­ons under ‚Voca­bu­la­ry‘ and look up their Ger­man mea­ning at Franks Wör­ter­buch.  As usu­al pay atten­ti­on to the con­text of the words to find their cor­rect trans­la­ti­on.  Eit­her print the vocab and add the Ger­man trans­la­ti­ons by hand, or copy the words and their defi­ni­ti­ons into a docu­ment and add the Ger­man trans­la­ti­ons. Bring your vocab (= bold words with Eng­lish explana­ti­ons and Ger­man trans­la­ti­ons) to class next les­son.

Final­ly pre­pa­re a short talk about your pod­cast for next les­son.
