    Access German: A First Language Course provides a thorough grounding in all the skills required to understand, speak, read and write contemporary German from scratch based on everyday scenarios.

    This fully revised edition consists of 10 units, each of which includes language focus panels explaining the structures covered, cultural focus sections with current information from Germany and other German-speaking countries, and a comprehensive glossary. Learning tips and Ready to move on checklists help students to achieve a sense of autonomy, while the accompanying website gives direct access to additional listening, reading and speaking activities, plus teacher support and guidance.

    Access German is ideal for adult learners and students at level A1–A2 of the CEFR, and Novice–Low on the ACTFL proficiency scales.
