german tv series

Devilishly good, I dare say.

Okay, so… is anyone else obsessed with the TV show “Lucifer”? Because HELL, I am! I just finished Season 2 and I can’t believe they leave us hanging like this. Also, I’m in love with Maze. Tell me now that I’m not the only one out there!

Concept: A children’s TV series similar to Dora that is meant to teach and immerse children in a foreign language, such as French, German, Arabic, Mandarin, etc.
It would start out slow, with a few phrases and words in the foreign language per episode, and the content would increase in quantity and complexity as the series progresses, eventually resulting in episodes that are almost completely in the foreign language.
This, with books of a similar fashion, would help children become interested in learning other languages at a young age, and immerse them in a language they wouldn’t otherwise hear if they don’t live in a country that speaks that language.

Hey there! :)

So I’m just a random girl trying to find new friends and people to talk to.

I would like to write with you on the internet (tumblr, Insta, whatsapp or where you’d like)

I really want someone to trust and who can trust me and to talk about basically everything.

Don’t be scared to write me a long ass story about something because you think it’s boring or that I wouldn’t care, because I do!

And please someone who will have more than one conversation with me (I had enough of that)

I also don’t care if you share the same interests as me because I like to learn new stuff to which you could introduce me to :)

But if you’d still like to know: I really like watching Netflix or series in general (mostly the 100, Game of Thrones, Vampire Diaries, American Horror Story and a few more, but I’m always open for suggestions), I listen to music 24/7 (I like Fall Out Boy, Panic! At The Disco, Melanie Martinez, Halsey, Ashes Remain and Imagine Dragons), I’m one of those people that prefers winter over summer and rain over sun, I love to read but I don’t have enough time to do it,

I draw but I’m not good at it, same with writing, and I would one day want to travel a lot and make new

experiences.

Besides that I’m from Germany, so german is my first language but I obviously speak English but also a bit (!) french and Spanish.

I would love to hear from you!

(I’m a bit shy and awkward at the beginning because I always have to get comfortable around people first)

Preferences: Preferably around my age (14-16) but if you’re a year or something younger or older that doesn’t really matter that much.

If you’re racist or homophobic or discriminating in any other way, don’t even think about contacting me.

Ein Tiefgang von rund 1,8 Meter wird selten überschritten. Stationiert sind diese Schiffstypen an Nord- und Ostsee in kleinen Häfen (Kutterhäfen), die oft auch über einen Verarbeitungsbetrieb für den angelandeten Fang verfügen. Zu den bekannten Kutterhäfen gehören Dorum, Greetsiel und Fedderwardersiel.

Name: Viktor
Age: 20
Country: Germany

Hello, my name is Viktor, I’m 20 years old and from Germany.

Like basically everyone I like listening to music(right now especially to Shinedown, Imagine Dragons, Sabaton etc.). I also watch anime and many series(like GoT, Archer or Dexter).
My other hobbies are gaming and reading(although the former supresses the latter one quite a bit).
I’m planning on becoming a history teacher so I’m really into history. Especially the modern area but I also like the Roman Empire and the ancient times. Otherwise I’m interested in politics, philosophy, psychology, ancient and modern cultures and the world itself. I’m also sort of addicted to memes.
I hope that I can find people to discuss and talk about various topics from complex ones to ordinary ones and alsoabout “bullshit topics” which are so stupic that they’re funny again. I’m generelly an open minded person I believe that I can add my two cents to every topic.

I speak German, English and Russian and hope that I can find some penpals and maybe even longtime friends which I could meet some day.

Preferences: I don’t really have any preferences but I suppose you should at least be 16 or something.
Other than that just don’t be a dick and I think we could become penpals!

Country: Bosnia and Herzegovina

Hey everyone! So I’m looking for some friends because I don’t have many lol. I really want to talk to people about anything and everything, nothing’s off topic, the deeper the better. I’m reaaally gay so if you have a problem with that you are probably not the person I would enjoy talking to. I am really into social justice, human rights and all that suff so there’s that. I’m also very open-minded. I love love love RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE and 13 REASONS WHY. I put that in capital letters so all of you can see it while scrolling and maybe get excited as much as I get excited when I see it. I speak English and Serbian really well and German a little bit. My days consist of watching YouTubers, TV shows, listening to music (Beyonce <3, cupcakke, Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, Jessie J, Gaga and many more queens, I told you I’m super gay) and studying. There are many more things I would like to say about myself but I just can’t remember right now. So you can maybe ask them?

Preferences: I would like to talk to someone who is not closed-minded and has a lot of free time to chat.

mysoul-is-paintedpastel  asked:

Haii, could you recommend me some nice german movies or tv-series to watch?

Hi @mysoul-is-paintedpastel !

Let me see… the best thing you can do is probably watch dubbed movies (for example Disney but also pretty much everything else; we dub pretty much every English movie and lots of French movies, too.) because 1) usually they’re easier to understand (as in ‘hear what people are saying in the first place’) because the voices are recorded in a studio and they use microphones and 2) German TV is a disaster :D 
I don’t really know your level so I’ll just recommend a couple of things! 

Die Drei ??? (sort of a… radio drama… kinda thing about teenage detectives. The link leads you to the first episode but the channel has a lot more so you’ll be busy for a while!) 

Hui Buh - Das Schlossgespenst (also a radio drama about a ghost and its adventures with the people of the castle it lives in. I used to love this as a child! This episode isn’t complete unfortunately but I think you can find them elsewhere, too? Apparently they’re on Deezer, whatever that is :D)

Benjamin Blümchen (radio drama about an elephant and his friend, a boy called Otto. The channel only has a couple of episodes, though.) 

Die Wilden Hühner (a movie version of the book series by Cornelia Funke; I have never actually seen these movies though; I can only find this on Netflix, the link is to the trailer. 

Türkisch für Anfänger  (this one is iconic… the main character’s German mom moves in with her Turkish boyfriend and his kids, shenanigans ensue. This is the first episode.) 

Die Sendung mit der Maus (children’s show where they explain how things work. This is a random episode on Youtube but more can be found here ). 

Wissen macht Ah! (sort of like Sendung mit der Maus but for teenagers. Used to love this as a kid! Link is to their YouTube channel with lots of episodes.) 

Die Pfefferkörner (apparently a classic but I’ve never seen it. Teenagers solve crimes.) 

Wunschpunsch (… a … cartoon based on Michael Ende’s book Der satanarchäolügenialkohöllische Wunschpunsch. The channel only has a couple of episodes but if you do some research you can probably find more.) 

Momo (cartoon series based on Michael Ende’s book Momo. The story is amazing ofc, it wouldn’t be Michael Ende if it wasn’t). 

Nils Holgerson (cartoon series based on a book by the swedish author Selma Lagerlöf about a boy who, after being shrunken and acquiring the ability to talk to animals, flies away with wild geese.) 

Tatort (a classic and the essence of German culture. Crime show with various casts, the characters depend on which city the episode is taking place in. You will learn some dialect as well if you watch this. Not all of them are equally good. Link leads to the WDR mediathek where you can watch the Tatorts that were on TV recently. You can also find many Tatort episodes online.) 

That’s it for now, if I find more I’ll add the links to this post! If anyone else has any suggestions feel free to add them as well!

Name: Alessandra
Age: 16
Country: Italy

Hi, I’m Alessandra! Ive always been better at writing than talking, so I think having penpals would be the best way to find new friends at the moment. I study languages (French, German and English) so it’d be beautiful to talk to someone that can help me improving my skills, but thats not that important, Id accept anyone from the other side of the world anyway.
I am an equal rights for everyone supporter and I love listening to people random talking bc it sorta happens to me most of the time.
Im pretty open to different ideas, I like the fact that there are very different people and thoughts on Earth and Id love to share opinions with anyone!
Ive always been a bookworm but I kinda have no time to read books I love bc school keeps me very very busy.
I ADORE WATCHING SERIES: 13RW and Sherlock are such important series to me, so feel free to fangirl about them with me bc I actually do it all the time. I love photography and my music taste is preeetty much wide!
You can contact me on tumblr or by e-mail, but Id also love to have a snailmail penpal!

Preferences: No age preferences!
