History[edit]

The German-English language textbook was started in October 2003. It was one of the first language textbooks at the English version of Wikibooks, following close on the heels of (and borrowing some layout ideas from) the Spanish language textbook then under development by Thomas Strohmann. Eric Guinther designed the cover and contents pages, expanding on a cover layout used for the Spanish textbook, and these ideas as introductions to language books have since been widely copied at Wikibooks (see Dutch, Norwegian, or Romanian for examples). However since then Hagindaz and German Men92 have established a highly templated style. Unfortunately, some of the plans of the latter have never been implemented, leaving the original Level II lessons inaccessible for several years while the Level I lessons contained too much vocabulary and grammar details to be very useful.

Clipboard

To do:
The current tasks are:

  • Currently I am revamping the complete German textbook, as it contains details in a very haphazard manner, and if someone as a newcomer wishes to read through it, it is quite impossible for the student with so much forward information.
  • Level I through Level V, will be interchanging lots of chapters and subjects, and will be placed as per the requirement and as per the stages for students.
  • I am not too familiar with the Print Version & the PDF Version, so will take assistance if am unable to do it myself.
