German Grammar: Reviewed and Retold
Germany’s Cultural History from Siegfried to Today
- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after November 29, 2021
German Grammar: Reviewed and Retold is a user-friendly grammar/workbook designed to give German learners a great basis to build an in-depth knowledge of spoken and written German.
Bridging the gap between grammar, story-telling and culture, learners of the German language discover Germany’s cultural history as well as life in Germany today, while absorbing grammatical structures through reading and practice. This grammar is based on recent SLA research and word frequency, to embed vocabulary and grammar into a language specific cultural context. A key component of this approach is consistency and relevance, enabling students to apply grammatical structures to their language learning, as well as talking about the past, present and future.
Aimed at ACTFL levels Novice (all) to Intermediate (middle)/CEFR A1 to B1, this is the perfect grammar for post-beginners, combining storytelling with grammar acquisition.
