This intermediate course now offers a host of new topics and features, including an extended multi-media package (sold separately). The strength of this course is the audio photo story that brings to life everyday events in German-speaking countries. This new edition features new stories involving Lara and her German guest family. These stories are available not only as audio files, but also as a slide show and are complemented by short video clips depicting scenes from Lara's daily life. Each unit in the book now features a double-page spread at the end called "Zwischendurch mal", as well as cultural information, songs, projects, comics or movies. These supplementary exercises and activities offer a choice of optional material to help round off the topic. The workbook has been re-designed and extended to include several more features, such as vocabulary practice and self-evaluation tests at the end of every lesson. Text is in German.
