Intermediate Lesson #3 - 99 Luftballons - Nena

Intermediate Season 1
Here's an oldie but a goodie, a German song that you may actually know, because it was immensely popular. "99 Luftballons" by Nena is a classic anti-war song. Nena sang it in English, too, but the original German version is a lot more expressive. This lesson features a lot of useful German vocabulary, some of it colloquial, and it introduces the German Präteritum (preterite past tense). If you don't know today's song, or you want a recording to sing along to, listen to it at Amazon.com Americans can also buy a legal mp3 of the full song right there; international visitors will have to go to 7digital instead.
