Netzwerk

The beginning German college textbook series, now available for high school programs.
 
With Netzwerk, students experience college-level pacing, format, and content.  Cultural material from the German-speaking countries is presented in context and linked to students' own cultural experiences.  Each chapter clearly states communicative learning goals, grammatical structures, and self-assessment and encourages students to take ownership of the learning process.  The modes of communication are addressed and practiced through realistic, up-to-date scenarios that include current media, devices, texts, and topics that relate to the digital world.  Exercises are student-centered and varied.  Grammar is user-oriented and relevant for communicative tasks.  Tasks are authentic and designed to facilitate advancement from simple to sophisticated use.  Informal and formal modes of communication are highlighted and differentiated from the very beginning.  Video is integrated thematically into the chapters and trains students to watch, listen, and understand.
