This booklet is presented as a guide for parents of elementary school German language students who wish to learn the language along with their children. Divided into seven sections, the booklet presents: (1) language learning hints; (2) pronunciation help consisting of practice in listening to and repeating German phonemes; (3) conversation capsules (small dialogues and a selection of drawings to accompany the texts) permitting parents to converse with their children about daily household, school, and community activities; (4) useful expressions for the description of the physical environment, personal feelings, and individuals, and for asking questions and directions and giving commands; (5) a list of "passwords" or expressions to accompany those the child learns in class; and (6) the words to German songs, rhymes, and riddles in the child's German language training. Also included are recommendations for German books to be used in the home to supplement the child's school learning. The booklet can be used with two cassette tapes that correspond to the sections presented above. (JK)
