About the Book

Basic German: A Grammar and Workbook comprises an accessible reference grammar and related exercises in a single volume.

Suitable for independent study and for class use, it introduces German people and culture through the medium of the language used today, covering the core material that students would expect to encounter in their first year of learning German. Each of the twenty-eight units presents one or more related grammar topics, illustrated by examples which serve as models for the exercises that follow. These wide-ranging and varied exercises enable the student to master each grammar point thoroughly.

Features include:

*clear grammatical explanations with examples in both English and German

*authentic language samples from a range of media

*checklists at the end of each unit to reinforce key points

*cross-referencing to other grammar chapters

*full exercise answer key

*glossary of grammatical terms.

Basic German is the ideal reference and practice book for beginners, but also for students with some knowledge of the language.

About the Series

Grammar Workbooks

These titles combine explanation with exercise work. The Basic Grammar Workbooks are for learners starting at elementary level. Intermediate Grammar Workbooks follow on from these and are for learners who have achieved basic proficiency and wish to progress to more complex language. Each combines clear, concise grammar explanations with communicatively oriented exercises to help build confidence and fluency.
Suitable for independent learners and students on taught courses, the Basic and Intermediate volumes together form a structured course of the essentials of each language's grammar.

All Grammar Workbooks are available as inspection copies.
