Wildes Deutschland, short texts for the beginning German student


Discover Germany's wild side with this collection of short texts for the beginning German student. This book contains 25 mini-books designed to be printed out, cut and folded to create your own mini-library about the wildlife of Germany. Students will meet the much beloved hedgehog and Eurasian blue tit, think about the tension created by the return of predators like the wolf and find out what happened when a brown bear ambled across the border into Bavaria.  Learn about range, diet, habitat and protection efforts, all told with simple grammar and vocabulary that is repeated over and over to assist language learners in comprehension and retention. 

The texts are organized by difficulty to aid in selection. It begins with simple sentences in the present tense, progresses to independent and dependent clauses and then introduces the past tense. At the end are a few stories containing passive or subjunctive constructions. These, too, however, are still fairly simple and the vocabulary will be very familiar by the time a student reaches these final books.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
