Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

A fundamental part of writing at university is using what you read in your work. Your lecturers may ask you to be critical, original and to put what you read into your own words. You will also be told not to plagiarise. What does all this actually mean? How can you use other people's work and still be original? How much of your essay should be about what you read?

It also: • Uses real texts and examples of real student writing • Gives you nearly 300 key words to use when integrating sources into your work and practice in using them accurately • Looks at common mistakes students make to help you to improve your own correction skills and avoid making the same mistakes yourself How to Use your Reading in your Essays equips you with all the information, practice and confidence you need to use your reading effectively in your writing and to get the best marks possible for your work.

No more embarrassing moments when you try to explain yourself in German! Traveling to a new country can be a challenge, especially if you don’t know a word in the local language. Even if you are only a 'regular' tourist, it makes a world of difference if you know just a few words or simple phrases when you start communicating with locals in their own language. Not only will you be treated with more respect and openness, but apart from that, knowing the right phrases opens up a whole new dimension of experiences. Most Germans though, speak some English, however they would definitely appreciate it if you knew some of the most important phrases. We have collected the most helpful and realistic German phrases, terms and sentences for all possible scenarios and situations in which you may find yourself. We not only wanted our selection of phrases to be practical, but also helpful as an additional learning tool that you can use every day to point at if you struggle to make yourself understood when speaking. This phrasebook is not only geared towards travellers. If you are a student in Germany, an expat or if you are there for professional reasons, you will find helpful terms and phrases for those circumstances as well. At the end, we have even included a section that will be helpful for kids or for their parents to facilitate their travel experience and provide useful words and sentences that will be very easy to learn.
