A Foundation Course in Reading German

Guides a learner who has no previous German experience to gain the ability to accurately understand formal written German prose, aided only by a comprehensive dictionary. Specific objectives include:

  • Explain enough grammatical and syntactical information about the German language to enable you to read any desired text with the aid of a dictionary.
  • Explain elements of word formation to accelerate the process of learning vocabulary.
  • Lead the reader through practice in small-scale translation as the necessary foundation for dealing with more complex readings.
