Concept and Structure


TEAM DEUTSCH – with team work, everybody succeeds


This junior high school textbook series is perfect for communicative, task-based and collaborative instruction. Pursuing an emancipatory approach, Team Deutsch systematically develops learning strategies and learner autonomy, and promotes social skills through cooperative methods of learning. The fresh, magazine-like layout and the vivid language attract young learners as much as the themes and topics that relate to their personal experience and curiosity.  Available as print copy or DVD for whiteboard and beamer.
