Dear German language student, The Mastering German Conversation series is designed for students who - at a minimum - wish to be able to hold basic conversations in German. Our programs allow students to practice conversing in German to a much greater extent than what is possible in a classroom setting. The progression of the course starts with simply repeating set phrases, which anyone can do. Then, we steadily bring the student to a place where he can formulate complete and accurate sentences in real-time conversation on his own. In this unit, we focus on these modal verbs: können dürfen mögen müssen sollen wollen werden sich lassen We continue to build your vocabulary in travel and shopping. We also work on placement of up to three verbs in one sentence. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Annette Brians. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/061750/bk_acx0_061750_sample.mp3.

Scaling a new peak of rash overambition, Tim Moore tackles the 9,000 kilometer route of the old Iron Curtain on a tiny-wheeled, two-geared East German shopping bike. Asking for trouble and getting it, he sets off from the northernmost Norwegian-Russian border at the Arctic winter´s brutal height, bullying his plucky MIFA 900 through the endless and massively subzero desolation of snowbound Finland. Sleeping in bank vaults, imperial palaces and unreconstructed Soviet youth hostels, battling vodka-breathed Russian hostility, Romanian landslides and a diet of dumplings, Moore and his ´so-small bicycle´ are sustained by the kindness of reindeer farmers and Serbian rock gods, plus a shameful addiction to Magic Man energy drink. Haunted throughout by the border detritus of watchtowers and rusted razor wire, Moore reflects on the curdling of the Communist dream and the memories of a Cold War generation reared on the fear of apocalypse - at a time of ratcheting East-West tension. After three months, 20 countries and a 58 degree jaunt up the centigrade scale, man and bike finally wobble up to a Black Sea beach in Bulgaria, older and wiser, but mainly older. 1.

Fluent in, oh, at least one language, he retraces his travels as a student 20 years before. Whether braving the homicidal motorists of Paris, being robbed by gypsies in Florence, attempting not to order tripe and eyeballs in a German restaurant, window-shopping in the sex shops of the Reeperbahn or disputing his hotel bill in Copenhagen, Bryson takes in the sights, dissects the culture, and illuminates each place and person with his hilariously caustic observations. He even goes to Liechtenstein. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bill Bryson. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rhuk/000600/bk_rhuk_000600_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Learn about the International Criminal Tribunals with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series.The concept of prosecuting war criminals is not unique to the modern world. Individuals who breached the ´´rules of war” were tried in Ancient Greece, and probably earlier. However, those early prosecutions were carried out by national courts, generally by victors against the vanquished, and so could hardly be described as examples of fair and impartial international justice. Underpinning the prosecutions was a notion that, even in war, there are certain rules which must be obeyed. The first notable international attempt to codify these ´´rules of war” was the Geneva Convention of 1864, followed by the Hague conventions in 1899 and 1907. The suggestion was raised then that an international criminal court should be established to enforce the conventions, however the idea was too radical at the time where national boundaries were considered absolute. At the conclusion of World War I, the Treaty of Versailles contained an agreement that a tribunal would be established to try Kaiser Wilhelm II, the German leader.
