This intermediate, modular approach to German grammar serves as both reference handbook and practice manual. The organization of the 30 chapters allows instructors to teach sequentially or in modules, as each chapter is self-contained and can be used in any order. The chapter structure provides a presentation of new information, followed by material for oral and written practice: Grammatik (grammar), Worschatz (vocabulary), Übungen (exercises, self-, and small-group practice), Anwendung (application, in-class group activities), Schriftliche Themen (writing topics), and Zusammenfassung (summary). An enhanced teaching and learning package includes an online IRM with test bank, audio components, a workbook/lab manual, and an instructor's web site. Examples throughout the text reflect authentic, current language practice and include idiomatic expressions and colloquialisms, as well as lexicon related to technology such as MP3s and cell phones.
