Title: Using German Vocabulary
Written By: Sarah M. B. Fagan
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/9780521797009
Description:

This textbook provides a comprehensive and thematically structured
vocabulary for students of German. Designed for all but the very beginning
levels of undergraduate study, it offers a broad range of vocabulary, and
is divided into 20 manageable units dealing with the physical, social,
cultural, economic, and political world. The word lists are graded into
three levels that reflect difficulty and likely usefulness, and are
accompanied by extensive exercises and activities, designed to reinforce
work done with the lists, and to increase students' competence in using the
vocabulary. Suitable for both classroom teaching and private study, the
exercises also make use of authentic German texts, enabling students to
work with the vocabulary in context. Clearly organized and accessible,
Using German Vocabulary is designed to meet the needs of a variety of
courses at multiple stages of any undergraduate programme.
