SHORT STORIES GERMAN 2.1 (Second Edition)
ISBN 13: 978-0-9816079-2-4
SHORT STORIES GERMAN 2.1 READER Second Edition meshes seamlessly with the 1.1 READER. The 2.1 Reader “remembers” the 1.1 Reader vocabulary and builds new vocabulary upon the previous vocabulary foundation. The 2.1 Reader Second Edition contains the same 28 short stores as the First Edition, with the following changes:
- Six of the 28 stories are now in both present and conversational past tenses.
- Stories 14 and 19 were partially re-written and improved.
At the beginning of each story there is a list of the target vocabulary for that story. In each story there are also words/phrases in bold type which are provided to challenge students. At the end of each story the students can find the English meanings of the words/phrases in bold type. The stories come with graduated grammatical structures.
The target vocabulary used in the stories builds upon itself. For example the tenth story uses not only the target vocabulary for that story, but also uses vocabulary already learned in the previous nine stories. The last and longest story utilizes a significant percentage of the target vocabularies of the 27 previous stories. At the end of each story is a list of questions about the story. There are attractive sketches that help "tell" the stories.
The target vocabulary closely mirrors the vocabulary of Blaine Ray’s LOOK I CAN TALK MORE!
The reader is 5.5 x 8.5 inches and 108 pages. Stories average 365 words.
