The much-anticipated second edition of this innovative, proficiency oriented materials packet for advanced college-level business German instruction includes a completely revised and updated two-volume textbook/workbook -- Volume 1: Die Volks- und Weltwirtschaft (Economics), and Volume 2: Die Betriebswirtschaft (Business). Other materials include a PC and MAC compatible CD ROM, which features full-color full-screen images, new visual content, and revised listening texts, audio cassettes with additional listening text exercises; an instructors resource manual with new transparency masters, and example tests. Building on the original edition, this program presents important thematic areas and basic concepts of business and economics relative to Germany. Beyond the presentation of thematic areas and basic concepts, these materials also include information and exercises for increasing student proficiency with the organizational, grammatical, and syntactical features of formal written German business discourse. Also included are exercises designed to build cross-cultural sensitivity as applied to the business setting. Exercise types, formats, and tasks are commensurate with the Prufung Wirtschaftsdeutsch International. Specifically designed for American and Canadian college/university students, this full-year program is highly adaptable to third year, fourth year, or graduate levels.
