How useful is Wikipedia?
subtitles equal audio perfectly

Wikipedia – Was bringt die freie Enzyklopädie?

Planet Wissen. 13.04.2021. 58:09 Min.. UT. Verfügbar bis 13.04.2026. ARD-alpha.

Wikipedia wurde 2001 gegründet und zählt zu den weltweit meistbesuchten Internetseiten. Die Grundidee ist, freies Wissen für alle, geschrieben von allen, kontrolliert durch alle anzubieten. Das schafft aber auch Probleme, denn die Artikel werden von Privatpersonen unentgeltlich geschrieben, ohne Gewähr für die Richtigkeit. Und nur etwa zehn Prozent der Beteiligten sind Frauen. Auch in Wahlkämpfen spielen tendenziöse Wikipedia-Artikel zunehmend eine Rolle.

With "Mediathekview" and "https://subtitlestranslator.com/" you can get the video with bilingual subtitles

Kraut: this may be a thread about German resources, but "Study groups" still is an Anglophone part of the forum. It's a borderline case because people who read the thread probably already can read messages in German (more or less well), but you can't count on that.

Documentary - buying a house

with man-made subtitles, translate with https://subtitlestranslator.com/ to get parallel subtitles, if played with LingoPlayer you can use its line-per-line forward button


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uOLlpyZDlA

A film about the dream of owning your own home and how families fight to make it come true.In fact, buying a plot of land or a property is more difficult than it has been for a long time. The prices for building land and the construction costs for one's own four walls have been rising rapidly for years. Not only in the metropolises, but also in smaller towns, land and property prices have more than doubled in some cases in the past ten years alone.

Sie sind ein penibler Mensch...

Does penibel have negative or positive connotations in German? It seems to be a translation of fastidious, which means "concerned about accuracy and detail" - so not necessarily negative.

I think it depends on context, the exact phrasing, and whether or not the speaker agrees that "penibel" is either necessary or annoying in the particular situation.

Sie sind aber penibel!
Er ist ist ein ganz schön penibler Mensch.
Warum musst du immer so penibel sein?

In these cases, it is more negative.

Unser Chef ist sehr penibel bei seiner Arbeit.
Bei dieser Aufgabe musst du besonders penibel sein.

Here, it is more positive.

However, if you say "Unser Chef ist sehr penibel bei seiner Arbeit. Das geht mir auf den Keks!" it turns to the negative again. And "Warum musst du immer so penibel sein?" could be meant as a tongue-in-cheek way of giving someone a complement for a job well done. The intention of the speaker is very important.

Starting a new beer brand in Bayern.
I'm not used to the Bavarian dialect. Can you understand it? For advanced students. Listen to the father here:
https://youtu.be/ANi-9DEo3JM?t=493

I didn't understand a word :D But with subtitles it's easier. Do native Germans find this dialect hard to understand?
