Providing a refreshingly new approach to studying a foreign language, Augustyn/Euba's WELTEN: INTRODUCTORY GERMAN, ENHANCED, 1st edition, takes you into the lives of 12 different people from German-speaking countries, allowing you to experience a variety of worldviews and even examine your own. Rich in culture, each chapter focuses on the life, work, interests and environment of one of these individuals -- ranging from a student in Jena to a designer in Basel to a chef in the Alps -- through different types of texts that are relevant to their "world". Selected for their accessibility and genre-specific characteristics, these texts bring each person's world to life while introducing you to grammar and vocabulary in a captivating context. Emphasizing reflexive and autonomous learning, WELTEN will strengthen your functional language abilities while helping you develop interpretive and analytical competencies and an appreciation of the aesthetic qualities of language.
