Summary

By maintaining a focus on building students' listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills, Deutsch Heute has become a classic among introductory German texts. Students learn grammar in a clear and concise format while being introduced to contemporary life and culture in German-speaking countries through cast of recurring characters. This cast appears in the Bausteine (dialogues) and in some readings and exercises, as well as in the Arbeitsheft (workbook) and tests. Familiar characters and the integration of all program components--workbook, video, and function-based activities--foster language learning and skill development.Easily manageable for two-semester courses, the text covers grammar in a logical sequence, leaving the future, subjunctive, and passive voices to the last two chapters. Each Kapitel (chapter) contains a number of function-based activities--in the early part of the lesson, and again in the Wiederholung (review)--that focus on specific emotional expressions such as showing skepticism or sympathy, signaling a lack of understanding, and giving positive and negative responses. More realia--advertisements, newspaper announcements, and cartoons--enlivens all the exercises and communicative activities throughout.

  • New! Updated chapter topics and readings reflect modern Germany and 7 of the 12 readings have been rewritten.
  • New! Two additional Integrated Listening Activities have been added to each chapter and are included in the audio materials. The script for these activities is now printed in the Instructor's Annotated Edition.
  • New! Poems appear in most chapters to further cultural enrichment and pronunciation practice.
  • New! Student annotations provide additional cultural and background information and enhance learning.
  • New! Land und Leute cultural notes have been updated to include information on Munich, Hamburg, Dresden, Leipzig, Basel, and Zürich. Special notes on Tübingen and modern Berlin now reflect the setting of video and the text.
  • Revised! Activities in the Grammatik und Ubungen section incorporate a more communicative approach.
  • Revised! Additional activities on structure in the workbook replace the Proficiency Cards, which are now available on the Deutsch heute web site.
  • Revised! Rewritten tests reflect theme and vocabulary changes in the text and improve or increase the level of communicative testing.
