Fresh off the train, he stumbles over an apartment offer which seems too good to be true, and of course there is a catch. Coping with new neighbors and a strange dialect, he soon begins to wonder whether he bit off more than he can chew.
Stroll through the city of Hamburg, learn about local sights and sounds, and improve your German effortlessly along the way!
This book is designed to help beginners make the leap from studying isolated words and phrases to reading (and enjoying) naturally flowing German texts. Using simplified sentence structures and a very basic vocabulary, this collection of short stories is carefully crafted to allow even novice learners to appreciate and understand the intricacies of coherent German speech.
Each chapter comes with a complete German-English dictionary, with a special emphasis on collocative phrases (high frequency word combinations), short sentences and expressions. By working with these “building blocks” instead of just single words, learners can accelerate their understanding and active usage of new material and make the learning process more fluid and fun.
