Connect for Kontakte: A Communicative Approach, 7e

Erwin Tschirner, Brigitte Nikolai, Tracy D. Terrell

The Seventh Edition of Kontakte continues to offer a truly communicative approach that supports functional proficiency while responding to students needs in new and exciting ways. As a direct result of our research, we created Connect German, a powerful online learning platform that includes the ebook, the online Arbeitsbuch, an audio/video chat feature, and a brand-new video filmed in Leipzig, thereby offering a flexible solution for the evolving introductory German landscape.
