This intensive lexical builder is addressed to B1-B2 intermediate learners of German, who are already capable of reading easy German stories, and who would like to enrich (and/or refresh) their vocabulary up to the advanced level in order to approach more complex German texts. Each piece of vocabulary is embedded in at least three example sentences in order to appeal to active understanding and trigger both short-term and long-term memory. Whenever possible, different meanings of the terms or expressions concerned are also illustrated. The vocabulary lessons are interspersed with concise but essential reminders of German grammar. At the end of the book, readers are offered a bilingual, paragraph for paragraph version of one of E. T. A. Hoffmann’s famous stories, namely “Rath Krespel” (1818), translated in English by J. T. Bealby (1885). In each pair of bilingual paragraphs, important words to retain or recognize are emphasized in bold or underlined. Finally, the bilingual version is followed by the original, German only text of Hoffmann’s novel – which readers are advised to go through, even if by now they know the narrative – since it is essential to retrieve and fully consolidate all learned German terms into their original context.

German vocabulary consists of both isolated identifier nouns and verbs, and some that are adopted from ancient and modern sources. Some Deutsch words are unique to Germanic regions. Others have been modified to be used in a universal fashion. It is not uncommon for grammatically-correct German vocabulary to have six or seven syllables with a multitude of contrasting consonant sounds. In many cases, German vocabulary combines the root usage forms of noun or verb hybrids to form one coherent and regionally-understood term. It is advisable that a full mastery of the "swallowed 'R' and umlaut" phonetic variants be mastered before attempting to incorporate advanced German vocabulary into speech.
