privately developped Covid vaccine


A laboratory doctor in Germany has apparently developed his own Corona vaccine. He tested it on several test persons on his own - now the public prosecutor's office has become involved.

The 74-year-old laboratory physician Winfried Stöcker has single-handedly developed a Corona vaccine and is now facing investigations by the Lübeck public prosecutor's office. This is reported by "Der Spiegel" in its current issue.

Der 74-jährige Labormediziner Winfried Stöcker hat im Alleingang einen Corona-Impfstoff entwickelt und sieht sich nun Ermittlungen der Staatsanwaltschaft Lübeck ausgesetzt. Das berichtet der "Spiegel" in seiner aktuellen Ausgabe.

Es gibt einige deutsche Wörter, die sich angeblich nicht übersetzen lassen. Was, wenn man es trotzdem probiert?
There are some German words that are not translated. What if you try it anyway?

We use this site in my German course. Lots of great links under Teach.

You're not a C1 (or B1 or whatever) if you haven't tested.

Does anyone know of anything that is similar to the Cornell University Russian site? With loads of transcribed videos, dialogues, grammar? https://russian.cornell.edu/index.cfm?M ... nkID=Trips

Additionally does anyone know of an advance German textbook along the lines of https://slavica.indiana.edu/bookListing ... ed_Russian ?


thanks!

Not exactly a 'master list of resources' but the Goethe Institut's online library is quite the underrated resource and contains loads of stuff (just register with a free account): https://www.onleihe.de/goethe-institut

There is also https://deutsch.info which is as comprehensive as it gets as far as learning sites go. Content is up to B2.

There are a quite a few German teachers on YouTube that offer a surprising amount of free content.

-Learn German with Anja
-Lingoni German (formerly "German with Jenny")
-Deutsch für Euch (with Katja)
-Learn German with Herr Antrim
-LanguageSheep

Below I've linked a few playlists.

Light Introduction

Here is a playlist from Anja covering a lot of basic phrases and topics.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BOCoGEy ... 873EEE18F4

Grammar

Here is a long video from a newer channel called "German with Laura" that gives a broad overview of German grammar. (Laura seems to be trying to direct viewers to her paid website/course so there is only a limited amount of free content on the channel.)

In a similar vein, this one-off series, ambitiously title "Secret of the German Language," gives some tips for keeping the genders and declensions straight.
