Pampered by Viennese "Gemütlichkeit" and slightly confused by yet another German dialect, he hangs around in coffeehouses until he saves the day for someone whose gratitude elevates him into a position of prestige and responsibility.
Explore the Austrian capital, learn about Viennese coffee culture, local cuisine and improve your German effortlessly along the way.
This book is designed to help beginners make the leap from studying isolated words and phrases to reading (and enjoying) naturally flowing German texts. Using simplified sentence structures and a very basic vocabulary, this collection of short stories is carefully crafted to allow even novice learners to appreciate and understand the intricacies of coherent German speech.
Each chapter comes with a complete German-English dictionary, with a special emphasis on collocative phrases (high frequency word combinations), short sentences and expressions. By working with these “building blocks” instead of just single words, learners can accelerate their understanding and active usage of new material and make the learning process more fluid and fun.
