Advanced Audio Blog #20 - Elections in Germany

Advanced Audio Blog 1
Even in Germany the media are full of news about the American elections, but what about elections in Germany? The next federal election is coming up in 2009, with some smaller elections in-between, so it can't hurt to learn some basics about the German democracy already. By the way, if you ever wondered what issues Germans debate about in a German election (not nearly the same as in the states!) or which German party would best reflect your beliefs, try the Wahl-O-Mat. It's an independent, well-researched site that will ask you questions about important campaign issues and match your answers with those of German party leaders and party programs. They do this for every major German election, not just the federal level, with the hope of increasing participation in the elections.

So Judith wanted us to celebrate with particularly many really useful German words and of course a new grammar topic: dürfen which means may. It behaves just like wollen, können and müssen. Therefore it will be really easy for you. Also, we will learn which cheap way Michaelas neighbor uses to get out of the conversation. And we will cover the philosophy behind German living rooms and why 1.000 Euro of damages are likelier than you may think.
