Mit uns! - With us …
learning German is fun!
»Mit uns« is a course for advanced young learners of German, based on their previous knowledge of the language and developing it further systematically. An interesting variety of topics and texts encourages teenage learners to form their own opinions and achieve new insights.
Texts relevant to the target group and teenage role models!
The course is very clearly divided up into modules: the topics in each module are presented by personable teenagers who create a personal and emotional rapport with young students. A wide choice of authentic reading and listening texts take account of teenage interests and train their reading and listening strategies.
Project work and authentic writing stimuli!
From the very beginning »Mit uns« puts the productive skills of speaking and writing at the forefront of the language learning process. A great deal of emphasis is placed on transparent and comprehensible exercises and tasks that encourage language production - in both independent as well as cooperative forms of learning. Authentic writing stimuli and a variety of projects promote oral and written powers of expression.
The perfect correlation between course and workbook makes targeting specific areas of language learning possible!
Part and parcel of work with texts in »Mit uns« is the presentation of grammar structures in the coursebook that can then be „discovered“, revised and extended in the workbook where students are required to formulate the rule themselves independently. In conjunction with the coursebook the vocabulary work included in the workbook contributes to extending the young learners‘ vocabulary and to giving them the necessary strategies required for their own independent vocabulary acquisition. Specific writing practice materials in the workbook aim to prepare young learners for the exam and at the same time to improve their own writing skills.
Motivating topics prepare students step by step for different current exam formats, in particular the Deutsches Sprachdiplom (DSD I und II) and the Goethe-Zertifikat B1.
