This language guide book helps you take your first steps in German quickly. Kauderwelsch books are more than your standard phrase book but not full-fledged text books either. They aim to teach you just enough to get along, so you can start using German in everyday life. The books can also serve as a head start for those who want to learn German more thoroughly later. At the core of the book is a word-by-word-translation: each sentence is translated both literally as well as into proper English. This helps to understand how the German sentence is built up and get a feeling for the language. As you dive into the oddities of the German language you will also find out about contemporary life, food, accommodation and many other things which travelers will encounter in Germany. The Kauderwelsch series is one of the biggest language book series in the world. There are more than 220 titles in German which cover all the world's major languages and many which may be labeled as exotic - after all, ,Kauderwelsch' can be translated as ,gibberish' ... +++ Also available: Audio material for "German - word by word: Pronunciation trainer" (Audio-CD or mp3-download). Free samples from the pronunciation trainer can be accessed from the book by QR- code. +++ Das bewährte Kauderwelsch-Prinzip mit Wort-für-Wort-Übersetzung eignet sich auch hervorragend zur Vermittlung der deutschen Sprache. Dieses Buch wendet sich an alle, die die englische Sprache beherrschen, und die schnell und unkompliziert Deutsch lernen möchten.
This new, thoroughly updated edition of Bradt's Suriname remains the first dedicated English-language guidebook to this emergent and largely unspoiled ecotourist destination and offers by far the greatest depth of coverage available. It is also the first guidebook in any language with a comprehensive section on the Upper Suriname River, an exciting and remote area serviced by around 20 small lodges. Detailed coverage of all accessible parks and reserves is included, including the three main marine turtle viewing sites and Central Suriname Reserve (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), with information geared to people joining organised tours as well as those who prefer the independent travel approach. Also included are detailed maps and town plans, many unavailable in any other resource having been drawn up from scratch by the author using GPS specifically for this book. Peaceful and politically stable, Suriname is one of the world's five most thinly populated countries. Its Caribbean coastline is famed for its peerless turtle-watching opportunities, while the interior is swathed by a vast tract of pristine Amazonian rainforest rich in wildlife and accessible only by air or along the tropical waterways that incise the interior. The guide includes a detailed introduction to the diverse wildlife and intriguing history of the only former Dutch colony in South America, along with detailed regional coverage of the tropical coastline, the historic inner city of the culturally diverse capital Paramaribo (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), and the thrilling opportunities for exploration afforded by the jungle-swathed interior.
