This double CD provides audio material which accompanies the textbook (ISBN 9780340946787) of the popular German course in the Teach Yourself series. Teach Yourself German is the course for anyone who wants to progress quickly from the basics to understanding, speaking and writing German with confidence. Although aimed at those with no previous knowledge, it is equally suitable for anyone wishing to brush up existing knowledge or refresh rusty language skills for a holiday or business trip. Key structures and vocabulary are introduced in 25 thematic units progressing from introducing yourself and dealing with everyday situations to using the phone and talking about work. The course covers all structures required for GCSE level and beyond. The emphasis is on communication throughout with important language structures introduced through dialogues on the accompanying recording. There are plenty of exercises to practise the language as it is introduced and tips throughout to help with pronunciation and grammar. Cultural information boxes give useful advice and information for anyone planning a trip to a German-speaking country. The new edition retains the tried-and-tested structure of the lessons but has been updated to reflect societal and technological changes, and the audio has been completely re-recorded.
