The days are getting shorter, it's cold and mostly gray outside. We should and want to stay at home anyway... This seems to be the perfect moment to make ourselves really comfortable and cozy at home!
The Transmitter team wants to provide you with some tips on books, movies and other media through our social media channels to inspire you to make the best out of the current situation and also learn some more about German language, history and culture ;)!

Eva is currently teaching our A2.2 intensive course in the morning. This weekend she dreamt herself back to the roaring 20's in Berlin and can warmly recommend this book to you:

Today, the book Die wilden Jahre in Berlin (in English: "The wild years in Berlin") accompanied me for a long walk on Tempelhofer Feld.
This book is a little journey back in time to the Berlin of the 20's. Each chapter portrays one or two female figures who had a special influence on Berlin during that period and maybe still today. The stories have impressed me, partly amused me and made me daydream. It is especially interesting for me personally to read which "Kiez" and neighborhoods were trending at the time. Apparently, people met in the West of the city at Ku'damm and Nollendorfplatz in Schöneberg to go out.
For advanced learners of German, these episodes from the past could also be quite interesting. You learn about the history of the city and how these special years shaped Berlin.
