KS3 Spanish Interactive Vocab Tester - DVD-ROM and&hellip by CGP Books
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I like this a lot. It gives you a good basic vocabulary and it's easy to use. Install it on your computer and off you go. You listen to the pronunciation, you can customise your own tests. Interactive tests on the computer or written tests in the booklet, it's all covered. I like the CGP range of books (I'm a private tutor for Maths and Sciences), and this is another good product. (Why do they have to truncate the word 'vocabulary'? that is so irritating)
This one, I'll be using myself for some Spanish vocabulary.

I still got one or two going. The electronic ones don't last long at all, and they release a toxic gas when the… Read more
Die Verwandlung der Welt: Eine Geschichte des 19. &hellip by Jürgen Osterhammel
Eine Besprechung der englischen Ausgabe dieses Buches war so vorteilhaft, dass ich mir daraufhin die deutsche Originalausgabe bestellt habe. In letzter Zeit war mir aufgefallen, dass ich relativ wenig weiss über das 19. Jahrhundert. Dabei ist dies eine wichtige Zeit in vielerlei Hinsicht: politisch, ökonomisch, technologisch, wissenschaftlich, musikalisch; so viele Hinweise und Halbwissen, was fehlte, war der Zusammenhang.
Das ist was dieses Buch liefert, den Zusammenhang, allerdings mit Schwerpunkten Politik und Ökonomie. Es ist sehr ausführlich und weltumfassend, sicherlich ausführlicher als es für meine Zwecke notwendig wäre. Die Gliederung des… Read more
