This text offers a unique approach to assisting German learners at various levels of proficiency in developing their writing skills in eight different genres. The guide includes information and activities for structuring sentences, paragraphs, and entire texts; building vocabulary; and raising awareness of cultural issues related to writing for specific audiences and purposes. By providing writing activities targeted at beginning, intermediate, and advanced learners, the guide will offer instructors a concrete means of unifying their German curricula across individual levels and courses.
As a supplementary writing guide, Schreiben lernen fills a need that exists in German curricula at all levels.
"Schreiben lernen is ideal to supplement other texts used in a variety of language courses."—Gisela Hoecherl-Alden, Boston University, The NECTFL Review
