The proposed materials are technically well prepared and easily accessible (free YT channel). Students have the opportunity to learn a live language. In the transcription, errors made by interviewers are very sporadically corrected. The student should be aware of this. Additionally, an English translation of the text is also given. Thanks to this, when a phrase or expression completely incomprehensible appear, the student has the opportunity to use the help. The problem is that the student has to follow the text along with the video and the script is not available for download it and read separately after listening. The absence of a glossary can also be considered a downside, as it does n ot provide the necessary lexical background.

In this episode, the author of the series interviews some Poles living in Berlin. The choice is inspired, because representatives of three generations appear in the material: a) one settled in Berlin before the collapse of communism, b) one settled in Berlin in the first years after the collapse of the communist system, c) the representative of the younger generation, recently settled in Berlin. In this episode a young man of Polish origin, born in Germany, also responds.
The episode is interesting as it presents different points of view on migration and identity. This episode is interesting for students in journalism, sociology, economic, etc.
