About

Overview

Focused on building linguistic skills and comprehension through creative introductions to contemporary life and cultures in German-speaking countries, WIE GEHT'S? Ninth Edition is the clear choice to prepare your students to communicate in German in your classroom and beyond! Now in its Ninth Edition, WIE GEHT'S? remains to be one of the most popular introductory German programs in the country. Both authors are native Germans and not only expose students to the German language, but encourage cultural awareness and the acquisition of a functional vocabulary that effectively prepares them to continue their study of German.

Features and Benefits

  • WIE GEHT"S?, Ninth Edition, presents a well-integrated package of material that addresses speaking, listening, reading, writing, and comprehension. Combined with an introduction to life and culture in German-speaking countries today, the approach is student-oriented, manageable, and up-to-date. Students will communicate in meaningful ways after only one year while also gaining significant cultural insights.
  • Students experience the Germany of today in the NEW WIE GEHT'S? video! With scripted episodes and unscripted interviews about contemporary life in the German-speaking countries, the video supplements chapter themes and vocabulary.
  • "Lernziele" and "Vorschau" features serve as a brief introduction to the topics, themes, and learning goals of the chapter. They also offer statistics, notes, and cultural information on the featured German-speaking region.
  • "Zum Thema" contains lively and authentic dialogues that introduce the featured topic in each chapter. These dialogues function as models for conversation; they are not intended to demonstrate new grammar, but rather recycle previous materials and introduce new vocabulary. Within each "Zum Thema," the "Wortschatz" 1 presents a list of new vocabulary to be mastered. These sections have been revised to ensure that the vocabulary is natural and current.
  • The "Zum Erkennen" presents a brief list of words and phrases (intended for recognition only) from the dialogue and exercises to reinforce continuous conversation in German. The "Übungen zum Thema," a variety of contemporary activities, follows to encourage communication and reinforce the words and phrases introduced in the dialogues.
  • A "Literatur" reading section occurs in every chapter of the second half of the book and includes poems, short texts, and literary excerpts, all of which were chosen to help students develop connections between language and culture. These sections are introduced by biographical data (Biographisches) about the author(s) and are then followed by pertinent pre- and post-reading questions (Vor dem Lesen / Nach dem Lesen) to build student understanding and stimulate discussion. All literary selections from the text are recorded on the Text Audio CD bound-in with every Annotated Instructor's Edition for easy listening in the classroom. Students can access the corresponding audio clips on the Book Companion Website.
  • "Hörverständnis" exercises, located at the end of the "Zum Thema" and "Einblicke" sections, help students improve their listening comprehension skills. Icons in these sections indicate material (along with the corresponding track number) that is recorded on the Text Audio CD that accompanies the AIE. The same audio files are accessible to students through the Book Companion Website. There is also a supplementary listening comprehension section (Verstehen Sie?) in the corresponding chapter of the "Arbeitsbuch".
  • Within each "Einblicke", the "Lesetipp" helps students with reading comprehension. This section also includes a writing exercise with a writing tip, "Schreibtipp" that often features a writing model.
