Learn German with Stories: Karneval in Köln - 10 Short Stories for Beginners: Volume 3 (Dino lernt Deutsch)

In this follow-up to “Ferien in Frankfurt,” Dino finds himself in Cologne, the carnival capital of Germany and home of the Cologne Cathedral. Struggling with tacky accommodations and an empty wallet, he stumbles over a gig which promises to be a walk down easy street. But before he knows it, the carnival begins and he’s faced with an onslaught of bewildering customs, an inebriated four-legged friend and sudden downpours of candy. “Explore Cologne’s colorful carnival tradition, learn about local sights and sounds, and improve your German effortlessly along the way!” This book is designed to help beginners make the leap from studying isolated words and phrases to reading (and enjoying) naturally flowing German texts. Using simplified sentence structures and a very basic vocabulary, this collection of short stories is carefully crafted to allow even novice learners to appreciate and understand the intricacies of coherent German speech. Each chapter comes with a complete German-English dictionary, with a special emphasis on collocative phrases (high frequency word combinations), short sentences and expressions. By working with these “building blocks” instead of just single words, learners can accelerate their understanding and active usage of new material and make the learning process more fluid and fun.
