This course book, written by Szilvia Dömők, provides help for all those who aim at taking a bilingual language exam in German language at intermediate level. This language-teaching package was published by Akadémiai Kiadó in the series of EXAM PASS - PRÜFUNGSPASS. The publication contains the following parts: a course book (Themenkompass), a grammatical practice book (Grammatikkompass) and a teacher's book. There is also a cassette attached to the course book. The colourful course book of almost 400 pages includes 20 units, each devoted to the most important topics of everyday life. The units have a unified structure: there are introductory vocabulary exercises to each subject that is followed by oral exercises, then comes the sequence of written exercises to practice the examination tasks (translation, reading comprehension, guided composition). The grammatical reference book, always at hand, can be consulted in any grammatical problem: it contains explanations and practice exercises. The novelty of the book is a bookmark, always at hand as well, that summarizes the language functions that can occur in everyday language situations. Thus the structure and content of the publication guarantee the most comprehensive preparation for the intermediate level language exam for conscientious students.
