"I was impressed with the detailed culture sections and the way that they are incorporated into other sections in the book. I liked the grammar explanations and exercises."
"The cultural information is relevant, accurate, and interesting - and especially important for instructors who might not have had the chance to spend time in Germany during the last few years. I like the improvements and updates, especially in regard to the EU and Germans' use of EC debit cards."
"In my opinion, a particular strength of this manuscript is the reading sections included in each chapter. The pre-reading, reading, and post-reading exercises are well-constructed and productively teach the students to deal with texts in the foreign language."
