Overview

Neue Horizonte employs a four-skills approach to German that stresses communicative competence, cultural awareness, and mastery of language structures. Students learn the language through solid grammar presentation, useful exercises, and an excellent selection of literary readings.

Pedagogy throughout the text reflects current trends in spoken German, such as updated Dialoge sections which introduce vocabulary in the context of everyday conversations. The overall chapter structure now falls into 5 major sections: Dialoge, Grammatik, Lesestück, Nach dem Lesen, and Almanach for better manageability, and the Videoecke section appears in the Workbook/Lab/Video Manual.

Meet the Author

David Dollenmayer is Associate Professor of German at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (Worcester, MA). He received his BA and Ph.D. from Princeton and was a Fullbright fellow at the University of Munich. He has written on the 20th century writers Alfred Doblin, Joseph Roth, Christa Wolf, and Ingeborg Bachmann, and he is the author ofThe Berlin Novels of Alfred Doblin, 1998.

Tom Hansen is Professor of German at Wellesley College. He received his BA from Tufts University, studied at the University of Tubingen, and received his Ph.D. from Harvard University. This past December saw the publication of his translation of The Trumpet of Reform: German Literature in Nineteenth Century New England (Columbia, South Carolina, Camden House, 1998). The work, by Prof. Sigrid Bauschinger of UMASS Amherst, traces the influence of German writers, particularly Goethe, upon the Concord Circle of intellectuals around Ralph Waldo Emerson. The chapters cover Emerson, Margaret Fuller, Thoreau, Bronson Alcott, Louisa May Alcott. Prof. Hansen has also embarked upon a new project that grows out of his earlier work on German exile literature: the life and work of the artist and book designer, George Salter (1897-1967). Salter's beautiful and innovative book covers, which influenced the aesthetics of the book trade in Berlin of the Weimar Republic and later in post-war New York, are the subject of a monograph he is currently researching.
