And what about the varieties of German you don’t learn about at school? We’ll be talking about all this and more on Yellow of the Egg, an independent podcast which you can listen to for free on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, YouTube and more.

Join me as we explore German together here on Yellow of the Egg. Let's crack on with the show!
