KALEIDOSKOP features a flexible four-skills, student-centered approach that promotes communication and focuses on the literature and culture of the German-speaking world. KALEIDOSKOP is essentially two books in one--a cultural and literary reader ("Lektuere" with 10 "Themen"), and a comprehensive review of grammar (Kapitel). The 9th Edition also features a fully integrated short film (Kurzfilm) in every other chapter. Reading plays an important role in this text, with exercises for listening, speaking and writing revolving around the wide range of authentic reading selections, including: advertisements, charts, newspaper and magazine articles, letters, e-mails, forum mails, polls, interviews, biographies, songs, poems, and fiction.

"Excellent grammar explanations and good, solid varied activities accompanying them."
"I have seen other intermediate German textbooks. None of them can compare to the grammar sections in Kaleidoskop. I really like the topics and presentation of the topics in Kaleidoskop and the vocabulary used."
