Viel Spaß - German for school students in Sri Lanka
New German textbook introduced by the Goethe-Institut Sri Lanka with the support of the Ministry of Education Sri Lanka, for German learners from grade 6 - 11 in schools.
The book includes all four skills: speaking, reading, writing and listening. The modules and exercises are structured in such a way that a school student can easily understand the context, the Grammar and listening texts. Viel Spaß pays special attention to pronunciation and intonation with respect to typical mistakes and difficulties that occur when learning German with a Sri Lankan language background. All instructions, explanations and tipps are provided in English language. Further, Viel Spaß incorporates a glossary explained in Sinhala, English and Tamil.
What distinguishes Viel Spaß from other textbooks available is that it comes along with intercultural aspects for a better understanding of the differences between Sri Lanka and Germany. Most textbooks are designed for foreign students living in Germany and do not consider the viewpoint from a Sri Lankan student. This book uses examples and situations that match the cultural context of Sri Lanka and are hence easy to comprehend for our students.
