Abstract:

All those who seriously want to speak or write German well must acquire a thorough knowledge of its very system. The conjugation and use of German verbs, however, is an area that often poses considerable difficulties to students of the language. German Verb Drills aims at helping learners overcome these obstacles, so that they can confidently use verbs when expressing themselves in German. Combining the features of a textbook, workbook, and a self-study manual, German Verb Drills clearly and systematically explains how the German verb system works, while providing numerous and varied exercises for thorough practice of each point covered. In addition, the exercise Answer Key at the back of the book provides invaluable support when learners need to clarify a concept immediately. Regular reviews also reinforce learning. Concise explanations of the use of verb tenses and moods are augmented and implemented in the rich exercise material in this book. In this way, exercises not only provide intensive practice; they also offer an ample fund of examples illustrating usage.
