56 INNOVATIVE PHOTOCOPIABLE WORKSHEETS
FOR TEACHERS & ESL STUDENTS
This textbook about
German-English language interference comprises an extensive
introduction to the topic, 56 innovative worksheets, and a humorous
section. The worksheets appear on the left-hand page with the solutions
on the opposite page, which should prove very convenient for teachers
and ESL students.
The book focusses on two different types of interference:
On the one hand there are innumerable cases of external interference,
i.e. disruptions because of discrepancies between the German and the
English language. For example, the German expression ein Beispiel für induces most beginners to assume that the English preposition is the same, thus using an example for instead of an example of.
On the other hand there are all kinds of internal interference, i.e.
disruptions within the English language. A case in point is the
following group of words, which are pronounced differently although
they might seem to rhyme: cough - dough - plough - rough - though - through - tough.
A comprehensive index complements the worksheets.
The textbook reflects the author’s extensive experience as an English teacher at a Gymnasium in northwest Germany.

Sounds cool - I want to buy it
NOTE: This book is also available for € 9 as a pdf file
which can swiftly be sent via email attachment. Of course, a pdf file
does not give you the pleasure of holding a real book in your hands.
Then again, it does have advantages - e.g. you can directly print out the worksheets, click on the internet links, etc.
