Overview

German Grammar in Context takes authentic texts from a variety of sources - modern German literature, journalistic and scientific writings, transcriptions of everyday dialogue and colloquial speech - and uses them as the starting point for the illustration and explanation of key areas of German grammar, particularly those which cause difficulties for English speakers. Each chapter deals with a key grammatical point, and begins with a short text followed by a detailed explanation of the relevant grammar, together with a range of exercises to give students the opportunity to practice the grammatical point at hand. The exercises are based around a particular topic so that students can build up their vocabulary at the same time as practicing the grammar, and the focus is on everyday words and expressions. A key to the exercises is included at the back of the book.
