Essay-writing in German: A Student's Guide
In this new and innovative book, Winifred Davies gives a detailed analysis of the skills involved in writing in German, concentrating on three text types; essays, reports and letters, but with the emphasis on essay-writing. From the pre-writing stage to the final full stop, the reader is encouraged to think through all the different stages in the production of a successful text - preparation, structure, style and content. Emphasis is placed throughout the book on developing the students' communicative and discursive skills as well as consolidating their grammatical knowledge. The examples and assignments draw as far as possible on German current affairs. This helps the pupils to get to know the language and the land.
