Hi,

I did not make it yesterday due to my first cold of the season...

As for german movies, the "berlin and beyond" festival starts
tomorrow at the castro:

I also have a number of german children's shows (and other shows and
movies) on DVD. We can maybe organize a viewing party, if there is
interest? These are mostly german audio with german subtitles, which
appears to be very helpful.

   Alles Gute, bis zum nächsten mal,
     Christian.

So in order to help beginners each week we will have an optional study theme to keep people busy in-between classes IE "At the restaurant", "Common words and phrases" or maybe topics such as gender or plurals in German.

Personally I am beginning at a very low level and so most of the links I contribute will be focused at the simple end of the spectrum, however if you are more advanced feel free to post more interesting links. That Pirate movie that got passed around a few days ago was perfect.
