With this book, change has come to foreign language teaching. The mother tongue taboo, which has been the perceived didactical correctness for so many years and in so many countries, is swept away. At the same time, this book combines theory with practice, advice and guidance to teachers. Since the mother tongue issue touches upon all the major domains of teaching – vocabulary, grammar, texts, communication, emotional aspects – a new synthesis of theory and practice has been developed. An invaluable resource both for the novelty and diversity of the teaching techniques presented and for the clarity of its writing.

Tauchen Sie ein in das vibrierende New York der 30er und 40er Jahre, folgen Sie einer unvergesslichen Heldin in eine Zeit, in der alles auf dem Spiel steht. New York – von der Marinewerft in Brooklyn zu den schillernden Nachtclubs in Manhattan, von den Villen auf Long Island zu den Absteigen in der Bronx. 1942 sind die Männer an der Front, die Frauen stehen in der Fabrik. Aber Anna möchte ein besseres Leben. Seitdem der Vater verschwunden ist, sorgt sie für ihre Mutter und die pflegebedürftige Schwester. Während Anna den Vater nicht vergessen kann, verfolgt sie bestimmt ihren großen Traum: Unter die gigantischen Kriegsschiffe an den Docks möchte sie tauchen, um sie zu reparieren. Ein Beruf zu gefährlich für eine Frau – genauso wie die New Yorker Unterwelt, in der sich die Spur ihres Vaters verlor. Der Pulitzer-Preisträgerin und New York Times-Bestsellerautorin Jennifer Egan ist ein Meisterwerk mit erzählerischem Sog, mitreißender Atmosphäre und unvergesslichen Figuren gelungen – ein großes Zeitpanorama!
