About the Author:

Martin Durrell, Emeritus Professor of German, Manchester University


"Prof. Durrell's approach to teaching German as a Foreign Language takes into account how German is actually used in a variety of contexts and registers. His use of 'real' examples to illustrate the language is innovative and much to be applauded."
