The new edition of this popular course features even more drawings and games in a modern layout, guaranteeing more fun and variety in the classroom! The first volume is aimed at 6-year-old children who are learning to read and write in German. In the first school year, the focus is on the development of speech and hearing comprehension, but the natural urge to play and move is also taken into account. The two main characters of the book, the sympathetic Anna and the cheeky Benno, teach their peers basic vocabulary, phrases and cultural aspects of German-speaking countries. With its attractive drawings and photos, narrative introductions to tasks, rousing songs, comics and craft activities, this is a wonderful way to teach children in the early primary years. The Student Book includes the audio CD. A workbook and teacher's book are also available (sold separately) and provide further language consolidation activities. Text is in German.
