Hi Laura. Congratulations on your move- are you there already or currently packing to go? I'm also moving soon- to Vienna in our case- but it means I'm going to have to knuckle down and really get to grips with German.
Cheers
Caroline

Hi Caroline,
I moved at the beginning of March, and the first two weeks were stress hell, as I didn't know how anything worked or where anything was, but I've settled in now.

Good luck with your move to Vienna. Living in the country will make learning German so much easier - although I still recommend taking lessons while there, as lessons taken while living in the country have a disproportionate impact compared to lessons elsewhere or just living there with no lessons at all.

This is so useful! Am an a level student looking for alternative methods of revision and this is just perfect. I shall definitely be checking out the other podcasts.
Many thanks!

Reflexive pronouns are used when the object of the verb (the person or thing the action is done to) is the same as the subject of the verb (the person or thing doing the action). An example in English is I hurt myself. This podcast explains the German reflexive pronouns and where they come in a sentence.
