This essential study tool gives students the practice they need to develop their listening, speaking, and writing skills. Each chapter brings together different materials to be used with the Student Activity Manual Audio, supplementary questions and activities to accompany the new video, and additional practice exercises that can be completed outside of class. Periodically, these chapters are followed by review sections that sum up grammar points and vocabulary that will help students prepare for quizzes and tests. The student activity manual also includes a complete summary of German pronunciation and an answer key for the review sections (Ruckblicke)."
