A complete course in introductory college German, including phonology, grammar, drills, dialogues, cultural readings, a workbook, and a complete tape program. Design of text and structure of grammar presentations maximise self teaching and self pacing aspects of learning the language. A Workbook has been developed to expand students' text-book skills by letting them apply what they have learned to new situations. Instructors will find it an excellent source for oral and written tests. New short readings with a game-like character concentrate on German culture and the students' need to articulate and function within that culture - hence topics such as computer talk, German social exchanges, and educational and economic issues.
