This best-selling German text is based on and inspired by the Natural Approach, pioneered by Tracy D. Terrell. Students learn German through communicative contexts with an emphasis on the four skills and cultural competence, with grammar functioning as an aid to language learning and not as an end in itself. The abundance of interesting personalized activities and a wide variety of authentic and author-written readings in Kontakte ensure that students are exposed to rich language input, critical to language acquisition. A full range of supplements, including video, audio and interactive online materials, provide multiple opportunities to practice newly acquired vocabulary and grammar and further refine developing language skills.
