A young German boy called Emil introduces us to his city - Berlin. The narrator speaks in English and Emil speaks in German. After a brief introduction to Berlin in English we meet Emil, see where he likes to play football and accompany him to various sights in the capital, including the Brandenburg Gate, the Berlin Wall and the Reichstag.

Can be used to provide cultural background, perhaps before starting a 'local area' or 'tourism' unit, or before beginning a project on the German capital. It could be used with more able groups as a listening comprehension, picking out Emil's opinions on the places he visits.
