Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Prof. Durrell's approach to teaching German as a Foreign Language takes into account how German is actually used in a variety of contexts and registers. His use of 'real' examples to illustrate the language is innovative and much to be applauded."

Dr Nils Langer, Reader in German Linguistics, University of Bristol, UK
