This new preliminary course is aimed at primary-level children aged 5 to 6 years. As children in this age group respond to play, the course is based around craft activities, role play and movement games. In each chapter we follow the adventures of five-year-old Anna, who experiences her world with her stuffed animal – panda bear Luka. All her adventures involve experiences that will be familiar to children: family, friends, nature, hobbies and kindergarten. Anna's story is portrayed with colourful, child-friendly drawings and set to music with authentic audio that stimulates playing, singing and dancing. The Student Book includes the audio CD. A workbook and teacher's book are also available (sold separately) and provide further language consolidation activities. This course will provide a lively and effective introduction to German for young beginners. Text is in German.
