"Starten wir!" takes student from absolute beginner to "Now I can!" easily and quickly. Each level contains material for approximately 80 class hours and uses a task-based approach that's fun and includes new forms of communication.
"Starten wir!" promotes learning in small steps. The content concentrates on everyday topics, language use and language structures and is presented on double-page spreads, each designed to cover two teaching units so it can be easily divided into manageable portions and is well suited to all types of language course.
Each double-page spread starts with a warm-up introduction, then practices all the key skills and ends with a task to test the acquired knowledge in a meaningful context, e.g. by designing posters, questionnaires, role plays or the writing of WhatsApp messages or blogs... Language competency is built up using the lexical approach (among others): concentrating on learning "chunks" of language and the development of wordfields. "Xtra lesen" sections complete each unit with a reading comprehension text and exercises.
The coursebook and workbook are kept separate and are pleasantly light and slim as a result. The clear structure, the intuitively designed exercises and easy to understand instructions make immediate involvement possible without any lengthy preparation.
The workbook contains one or more extra exercises parallel to each coursebook exercise numbered identically. Dictations, exercises comparing language usage and the vocabulary to be learnt per lesson complete the package.
Smartphones and tablets are not only part of the content and practice material, they can also be used in class to solve activity-based tasks or via the free "Starten wir!"-app to download listening comprehension texts.
