This book is in the same series as the bestselling “Better French” (now in its third Edition). A cross between a dictionary and a textbook, it is aimed at intermediate students who wish to grasp the nuances of the language, including the right way to use ‘problem’ words. In the same way as in English, there are differences in the usage of ‘hi’ and ‘how do you do’, so too in German. Learning the answers to these and a host of other questions can finally steer you to success.
Given the reality of Brexit and the ‘divorce’ between the U.K. and the E.U., there has never been a more important time to learn and improve our understanding of European languages. It is vitally important that we get better German to English translations. Germany is a good friend to the U.K. and this book will help improve your understanding of the language. This is important because Germany is a wealthy country and we need to develop products and services. Then we need to travel to Germany and sell those products and services to German schools, colleges, universities and businesses. Even if you are travelling to Germany then make sure you have a copy of this book with you. A trip to the Saarland, a German bier and German apple-cake are all joys in themselves but made so much better when you understand the language and this book will help you to understand the language. It really is a bonus for you.
