"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
A captivating collection of beautifully illustrated tales and legends drawn from the rich Germanic folk heritage. Here you will find tales of elves and goblins, and of sirens who lure sailors to a watery grave. Dragons, werewolves, and other assorted monsters roam through other selections. Some tales feature heroic deeds, while others explain how German cities got their names or were saved from disaster. And, finally, you will have a chance to laugh at the foibles of the fools featured in other stories.
These tales are written with the language learner in mind. Even though the stories are written entirely in German, the language and style are accessible. Difficult words are defined--in English--at the foot of each page so there's no need of a dictionary for unfamiliar expressions. There is also a bilingual glossary at the end of the book that defines the words from the stories. Each story is followed by a series of comprehension questions and activities, as well as by exercises that highlight the grammar and vocabulary used in the text.
Deutsche Sagen und Legenden is the perfect means for readers at the intermediate through early-advanced levels of German to strengthen reading skills, improve vocabulary, and fine-tune their knowledge of grammar, as they gain insight into the rich cultural heritage of the German-speaking world."About the Author:
