Deutsch für Alle: Beginning College German, 4th Edition
March 1993, ©1993
Deutsch fur alle, Fourth Edition, is an integrated four-skills program for first-year college German. This Fourth Edition offers an eclectic approach to language instruction that balances communicative work aimed at fluency with the structural work necessary for building a solid foundation in grammar. Students will gain pride and self-confidence as they learn to communicate accurately and fluently in activities that are interesting, lively, and interactive.
Deutsch fur alle introduces grammar structures systematically; accompanying activities feature everyday occasions in which this grammar is most frequently and naturally used. Most exercises and activities can be practiced in pairs or small groups giving each student, no matter how large the class, maximum active-learning time.

Communicative objectives are established at the beginning of each chapter and are listed along with the chapter's key points of grammar.
Dialogues or short readings at the beginning of the chapter present everyday situations. Exercises follow the Dialog to help students understand the situation as well as to teach them how to communicate effectively in similar situations.
The grammatical structures highlighted in the dialogue material are carefully explained in the body of the chapter and are followed by practical activities that focus on oral mastery.
A reading selection found at the end of the chapter incorporates the grammatical concepts of the chapter. The content of Lesestuck ranges from human interest stories to current events, and from cultural information to historic themes.
