Anyone looking to break the monolingual mold which so many native English speakers find themselves enclosed in will invariably find this book to be helpful. Here, we have a plethora of tips and techniques for learning German, as well as virtually any other language the reader can think of. If you are in search for a book on the subject of German learning, this would be the first for you to consider.
Traveling is one of the most popular pastimes in the world. It is always an adventure to explore new places and meet new people, but it adds a whole new dimension to the experience if you can communicate with your new friends (at least a little) in their own language. Not to mention that it will be incredibly helpful in reading signs and menus, asking for prices, directions, help, or introducing yourself.
This book will give you a basic foundation in the German language; it includes pronunciations, sentence structures, and a rudimentary vocabulary to enable you to begin speaking with the people you meet. You will become familiar with nouns, gender, and case and how to apply them to articles, pronouns, adjectives, and sentences.
Some of the phrases that'll be covered:
This book features several short stories in the Germanic tongue, along with their English translations. There are also sections dedicated to some grammatical and critical notes on the texts. The purpose of this book is not only to inform the reader about the German language, but also to entertain, and this short story collection does just that with ease. The topics that these stories cover range from private detective work to war, and from fairytale pancakes running from their evil captors to simple house tours. You won't want to miss out on any of it.
The stories included in this book were written by a number of contemporary authors in a number of genres and styles. They are as follows:
As mentioned before, these stories are not only featured in both English and German, they are also supplemented with additional notes exploring the storytelling elements of each story along with grammatical notes, tips, and such.
If you are curious about the German language, eager to know interesting things about Germany's culture and her people, or are just an ambitious reader looking for new short stories to add to your digital library, then this book would be a great fit for you!
This book is intended for use by beginner to intermediate German language level learners, so the reader need not be intimidated. Here, he or she will not find any technical jargon fit for a professional linguist or any esoteric German fit for a native German speaker. As was mentioned before, the purpose of this book is to inform and entertain, not to prepare the reader for a doctoral dissertation on German literature.
There will be also a discussion on the most common tenses in German (present, past, perfect, and past perfect) and their similarities and differences from English. By the time you are done with this book, you will understand how to conjugate verbs, determine case and tenses, and put together sentences and questions.
All you will need at that point will be a dedication to learning the vocabulary necessary to practice your new skills and make them second nature...
This is just a general outline though, this book more specifically covers study techniques applicable to any field, the culture of Germany as well as the rest of German speaking Europe, some of the history of the language and its various dialects, steps for beginning the study of the language, and learning German inside (and outside) of formal class settings.
All these topics covered should coalesce into something of value to the reader which can be carried over and utilized by him or her in the future. The overarching purpose of this book is not to teach German, as that would be impossible within the pages here, but more so to give the reader some tools for independent study in the future and help him or her to become a great solver of the problems which come with learning a new language.
