Summary and Info
Beginners' German is the basic book of the Walter-Krause German Series. One purpose of this introductory book is to initiate the learner into the language of every-day life as well as into the literary language, thereby insuring a reahstic vocab- ulary. As we start with the immediate environment of the pupil, we have the best of foimdations for interest and for suc- cess. At all times we are taking cognizance of the living adolescent and not of abstract pedantry. The work is an out- growth of actual class-room experience.
