Quick Overview

"I liked how DACHL did not follow the traditional organization for such a civilization and culture textbook. I appreciated the amount of 'space' dedicated to Austria, Switzerland, and Liechtenstein, which usually have little or none." —Tim Straubel, Western Kentucky University


Taking its name from the acronym for the group of countries Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Liechtenstein, DACHL is a combined reader/workbook that offers third-year students of German a fascinating cultural and historical tour of these four major German-speaking countries. Through its unique focus on the DACHL countries and travel throughout them, it offers an eclectic mix of discussions of Germanic cultural history from prehistoric times to the present by way of contemporary German-language articles on capitals, cuisines, music, politics, commerce, architecture, UNESCO World Heritage sites, festivals, biking, and much more. The articles are accompanied by vocabulary and followed by exercises that test comprehension and activate vocabulary. Included as well are opportunities for research, oral presentations, and writing assignments.
