These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (6591)
'Good vocab lists in German which gives students keywords but also makes them do some work by working out the meanings (...) I think that this resource would be extremely helpful for a teacher, especially as it includes the solutions to the questions. A teacher would also be able to pick and choose certain parts and use this resource when planning their scheme of work on Der Vorlese'S Davidson, German Teacher and Independent Reviewer
'I thought that the resource was a comprehensive and authoritative study guide to one of the most important German literary works of the last 20 years. It provides students with the chance to study the holistic picture, as well as the text itself, by looking in depth at themes raised. The educational value of the resource is vast.'N Jeffery, German Teacher and Independent Reviewer
