23rd September 2017 - The European Bookshop - 12:00 - 15:30
Join Silke Mentchen and Annemarie Künzl-Snodgrass as they present their latest book Speed up your German. Both authors are Senior Language Teaching Officers in the Department of German and Dutch at the University of Cambridge. Annemarie and Silke will answer questions and are happy to discuss studying languages at university.
Speed Up Your German is a unique and innovative resource that identifies and explains the errors most commonly made by learners of German, enabling students to learn from their mistakes while enhancing their understanding of the German language. Each of the twelve chapters focuses on a grammatical category where English speakers typically make mistakes. Each point is clearly explained and exemplified with a range of exercises to reinforce learning.
Plus, enjoy the celebrations taking place throughout the day in the European Bookshop for the upcoming European Day of Languages! (See below)
