In times when we can't carry out our normal lives and meet to practice languages, there are many ways to keep learning and to get away from bad news. I have put together a list of shows available in Germany (and in other parts of the world) that will make you mostly laugh, lowkey reflect and just forget the madness around you. Most of these shows can also be seen dubbed, but I don't really like that so put in the extra effort and practice your listening skills! Shows in English Gentefied BILINGUAL!!!! Spanglish. Tacos. Family. Comedy. Tragedy. ICE. LA. Recommended by a participant, approved by us! Watch: Netflix The Bold type Three young women. One Magazine. NYC. Real-life issues. Women supporting women. Feel good show. Watch: Amazon Prime Video Good Girls Three moms. Not enough money. One crime. Funny as hell. Watch: Netflix Sex Education Teenagers. Sex. A sex therapist mom. Highschool. What can go wrong? Watch: Netflix Brooklyn 99 Police officers. Brooklyn. Funny characters. Funny AF, Watch: Netflix Working Moms A group of moms. Babies. Real-life. Funny. Laughs.

Funny participants. All you need in life. Watch: Netflix This is us One family. Past. Present. Future. Sweet and real characters. Crying. Laughing. All you need in life. Watch: Amazon Prime video One day at a time One family. Bilingual. Current topics like anxiety. Funny. Real. Watch: Netflix Shows in German Wer kann, der kann (Nailed it!- German version) Sarcastic chef. Disappointed Germans. Baking catastrophes. Funny, yes, funny. This show is suitable for lower-level learners because watching people fail and bake atrocities needs no language. Watch: Netflix Deutschland 83 and Deutschland 89 History. German drama. Captivating storylines. The language level you need for this is advanced. And even though I think that my German is strong, I still need subtitles. The show is very well done and captivating. Watch: Amazon Prime Video Pastewka Very famous show. One man. One family. Weird humor. I have been to TWO Pastewka premiers and apparently, a ton of people love the show and love the actor. Honestly, I don't really understand the humor but give it a try! You have 10 seasons to fall in love with the show. Watch: Amazon Prime Video Shows in Spanish Niquelao (Nailed it! -Spanish version) Nailed it! Mexico Cake. Spanish. Mexican Spanish. Hilarious fails. A good laugh. Watch: Netflix Elite Teenagers.
