The SAM consists of the Arbeitsbuch and Harverstndnis, and Video-Treff components. Each chapter of the workbook section begins with a useful summary of the grammar points presented in the corresponding chapter of the student text. The workbook section features a variety of exercises including sentence-building/sentence-completion exercises, fill-ins, matching exercises and realia-based and picture-cued activities. The Harverstndnis component contains spin-offs of the Vorschau, Zwischenspiel, and Zusammenschau dialogues, with accompanying activities on audio CD. This lab program also offers vocabulary and pronunciation practice, pattern-type exercises, and personalized questions.Widmaier, Rosemarie E. is the author of 'Treffpunkt Deutsch-Arbeitsbuch', published 2007 under ISBN 9780131955813 and ISBN 0131955810.
