STATIONEN: EIN KURSBUCH FÜR DIE MITTELSTUFE, Third Edition is an intermediate German program that combines engaging cultural topics with authentic readings and contextualized grammar in a unifying context. Each chapter of STATIONEN revolves around a city or region in the German-speaking world. This overarching concept brings the program together and invites students and instructors to make connections and comparisons between chapters, topics, and cultural issues. STATIONEN also refers to the “stations” between the first beginnings of a journey into German life and language and to more advanced study and exploration on the intermediate level. In addition, the accompanying video component contains footage of videoblogs from eleven cities in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland that complements the textbooks content and serves as windows to contemporary German culture. These snapshots of everyday life connect interview clips with images of public spaces to move students beyond the realm of ordinary language instruction and into the scenarios and situations that reflect a developing German speaker’s real-world needs. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.

"Henceforth I will serve Evil. I'll become a most depraved character. I'll turn really wicked." - Fursey Having escaped being burnt at the stake, the reluctant sorcerer Fursey is back in this sequel, trying to make a quiet life for himself as a grocer in the realm of King Ethelwulf. But when his old enemies seize his wife, Fursey resolves to embrace evil and return to Ireland to reclaim her. Along the way, he'll have to contend with bloodthirsty Vikings, a melancholy vampire, an alcoholic wizard, a lovesick cow, and Satan himself, who is more determined than ever to get his hands on Fursey's soul. "The Return of Fursey shows no lessening at all in Wall's quality of imagination ... as with the best of Charlie Chaplin, or of Anton Chekhov or O'Casey, the laughter is very akin to high art." - Robert Hogan "For anyone who doesn't know Fursey, this opportunity to do so is not to be missed." - George O'Brien, Dublin Book Review "The Unfortunate Fursey and The Return of Fursey are not quaint esoterica for the specialist, folks, they are living masterpieces. They haven't dated slightly and are as fresh and as powerful as when they were first written." - Darrell Schweitzer "The Unfortunate Fursey and its 1948 sequel, The Return of Fursey, have been called the Irish equivalent to T.H. White's The Once and Future King ... If you enjoy the dry, ironic humour of John Collier, Roald Dahl, Saki, or Jack Vance (and you should), you will like Fursey." - Michael Dirda, Essays and Literary Entertainments
Although Gender Studies have found their way into most domains of academic research and teaching, they are not directly in the spotlight of foreign language teaching pedagogy and research. However, teachers are confronted with gender issues in the language classroom everyday. By the use of language alone, they construct or deconstruct gender roles; with the choice of topics they shape gender identities in the classroom; and their ways of approaching pupils clearly mirrors their gender sensitivity. The book "Gender and Language Learning" aims at raising awareness towards gender issues in different areas of foreign language teaching and learning. The primary objective of the book is to spark university students', trainee teachers' and in-service teachers' analysis and reflection of gender relations in the foreign language learning and teaching section.
