Gehirn-gerechtes Sprachenlernen (E-Book)

hep verlag


Dieses E-Book enthält komplexe Grafiken und Tabellen, welche nur auf E-Readern gut lesbar sind, auf denen sich Bilder vergrössern lassen.

Das Lernen ist dem Gehirn ein echtes Bedürfnis. Es arbeitet ganz von selbst, wenn wir es nur lassen. Wir stören es im

Lernprozess, wenn wir endlos Vokabeln pauken und uns dann vom geringen Lernerfolg frustrieren lassen. Lernen wir eine Sprache hingegen gehirn-gerecht, ist dies viel wirkungsvoller und nachhaltiger. Sprachenlernen kann Freude bereiten – auch in der Schule. Erfahren Sie in diesem Buch, wie das geht.

Karin Holenstein erklärt gut verständlich die neurobiologischen Grundlagen des Lernens und erläutert Schritt für Schritt die gehirn-gerechte Lernmethode nach Vera F. Birkenbihl. Die Autorin zeigt, wie die Methode im Fremdsprachenunterricht einfach eingesetzt werden kann, wie sie in Kombination mit jedem Sprachlehrmittel funktioniert und dadurch allen Lernenden zu Erfolgserlebnissen verhilft.

Das Buch richtet sich an Sprachlehrpersonen jeder Schulstufe und an Jugendliche wie Erwachsene, die ihre Fremdsprachenkenntnisse selbstständig verbessern oder eine Sprache neu lernen möchten.

Bittersweet

Goose Lane Editions


Sometimes the life we have constructed needs to fall apart before we can begin the process of making something better. After his first marriage ended, Philip Lee found himself living with his younger brother in an old fisherman's house by the sea, trying to restore some order to the wreckage of his life. It was a dark year of rain-bucket showers, blowtorch espresso, and abandoned renovation projects. They were bachelors in every sense of the word. With wit, warmth, and sensitivity, Philip Lee writes about this dark year, the struggle to rebuild his life and family and his rediscovery of love's possibilities. Lee's journey takes him from the coastlines of Eastern Canada to the cities of China and the Greek island of Naxos. Cutting to the heart of the matter, he explores how it is that we might lift ourselves up through the great work of love.

---

"If you're interested in a journalist's exploration of marriage and relationships, written in a style so personable that you'll wish you could have the author and his whole family over for dinner, I highly recommend giving Bittersweet a try."

---

"[Lee's] often startling vulnerability and openness invites readers to draw from his experience both the assurance that someone else has been where they are and points of departure for their own reflection on loving others."

---

"Beautifully written …. informative, entertaining and filled with hope... a must read for anyone who has walked through the pain of divorce and the joy of re-discovering love."

---

Philip Lee is the director of the School of Journalism at St. Thomas University. He is the former editor-in-chief of The Telegraph Journal and the author of Frank: The Life and Politics of Frank McKenna and Bittersweet: Confessions of a Twice-Married Man.

Lee has been recognized nationally for his writing. In 1989, his stories helped to prompt the Royal Commission of Inquiry into the Mount Cashel orphanage scandal and he was part of a team of writers shortlisted for the prestigious Michener Award for public service journalism. In 1995, Lee won two Canadian Association of Journalists awards, including best investigative report of the year in Canada, for a series of stories about Atlantic salmon conservation. He later turned the series into a book, Home Pool: The Fight to Save the Atlantic Salmon (Goose Lane, 1996). Over the years, Lee has won several Atlantic Journalism Awards and been shortlisted for a National Magazine Award for column writing.

BWL Publishing Inc. | The Blame Game


Charlie Naughton and Jenny Craft grew up together. Their parents were best friends and the kids were inseparable throughout their school years. But when Charlie goes off to college, he’s focusing more on his baseball scholarship than the friend he’s leaving behind. Jenny’s been in love with Charlie since she was seven, and he kissed her at his brother’s wedding reception. Since then she’s bided her time, waiting for him to realize that he loves her, too. Her senior year of high school is supposed to be one of her best. But when her parents’ marriage hits the skids and her best girlfriend makes a surprise announcement, Jenny barely has time to deal with her blossoming romance. And with Charlie’s insane schedule, thinking about each other seems to be the best they can do. When they finally find time to be together, neither one of them wants it to end. “If anyone asks where we were, we’ll just blame it on the rain.” But is ‘happily ever after’ really possible?

Blood Fable

BookThug


Winner of the 2018 Thomas Raddall Atlantic Fiction Award

Maine, 1980. A utopian community is on the verge of collapse. The charismatic leader’s authority teeters as his followers come to realize they've been exploited for too long. To make matters worse, the eleven-year-old son of one adherent learns that his mother has cancer.

Taking refuge in his imagination, the boy begins to speak of another time and place. His parents believe he is remembering his own life before birth. This memory, a story within the story of Blood Fable, is an epic tale about the search for a lost city refracted through the lens of the adventures the boy loves to read. But strangely, as the world around them falls apart, he and his parents find that his story seems to foretell the events unfolding in their present lives.

Priase for Blood Fable:

"A family drama, a fantastical voyage, and a poetic reflection on love, death and betrayal, this extraordinary coming-of-age novel exposes the difficult relationship between free-thought and blind faith, evasion and enlightenment. Oisín Curran's Blood Fable is an adventure for the heart and soul." —Johanna Skibsrud, Scotiabank Giller Prize winning author of The Sentimentalists and Quartet for the End of Time

"This careful and loving rendering of a child's mind proves that acts of storytelling were once not so much vehicles for escape but instead crucial rehearsals for being. A remembrance of lost time—or maybe, to reference its Buddhist undergirding, an alaya-vijnana, a storehouse consciousness—Curran's vision of boyhood is perfect in details and sublimely moving. Blood Fable is a magnificent double take, which—like a bistable optical illusion (duck or rabbit?) —allows two universes to coexist. A rapturous adventure tale where the very essence of adventure is subverted so that fantasy and reality conflate; this is done not for temporary trickery but to deepen our comprehension of the real." —Eugene Lim, author of Dear Cyborgs

"The dark magic in Blood Fable is just a story (within a story), but that somehow makes it more, and more truly, magical. It is a story about how stories are made, how they help and refuse to reflect our lives, as resonating versions of the world refracted through the prism of imagination. On almost every page something threw me gloriously off balance and I couldn’t stop asking myself: how does Oisin Currin manage to write so consistently, compellingly, hauntingly well? I will reread this book." —Jacob Wren, author of Rich and Poor and Polyamorous Love Song"Blood Fable is, for me, a perfect book; it is the novel I always wish I were reading. In its twin stories&mdasj;one of an eleven-year-old boy and his flawed, beloved parents and the other a wild tale of love, peril, and adventure across underground tunnels and seas—are all the wonder and terror of childhood, refracted by a luminous imagination. Through the wide eyes of a child, Curran plumbs the world of adults with compassion and acuity. Blood Fable is a quest, a question, a story of searching—for understanding, insight, heroes—and of failing, finding in their stead the imaginative mercy of love. This is a joy of a novel, glittering, wondrous, and strange. I remain in its thrall." —Rebecca Silver Slayter, author of In the Land of Birdfishes

Bridge Retakes

BookThug


Bridge Retakes, the debut novel by Angela Lopes, is a whirlwind millennial tale of love and family and the distances that people will (or won't) go to secure what they want.

A Bahian man and a Brazilian-Canadian woman meet on an online dating site. They come from very different worlds—geographically, economically, religiously—and yet, their connection is undeniable. When these long-distance lovers run up against their own belief systems and those of their families and communities, it's their desire to build a life anew that keeps them moving forward. But all the while, issues of money, class, gender, and corruption threaten to tear them apart.

---

Praise for Bridge Retakes:

"This is the story of Phila + Ze, of Canada + Brazil. And like all great love stories it charts the emotions around desire, all its sweats and confusions. And it does this beautifully. What Phila &+43; Ze = is the plot of this book. And as such, what Bridge Retakes adds to these stories and what makes it distinctive is how these sweats and confusions are shaped by more complicated forces, such as national borders and economic inequalities."—Juliana Spahr

Bouquet of Thorns

BWL Publishing Inc.


On a travelling scholarship in India, Sarah’s brother has left her in charge of his run-down wine bar, telling her to sell it if she can. Waitressing in the evening as well as trying to establish her own flower shop during the day is more than she can cope with, however, and when she starts to fall out with the customers she knows it’s time to stop. Then the owner of the biggest hotel in town offers to buy it and, fingers crossed, she hopes her troubles will soon be over. Unfortunately for Sarah, they are only just beginning. Working long hours, using the profits from her own business to prop up the wine bar, and trying to pacify her disgruntled boyfriend, she is too tired to think straight as she lurches from one catastrophe to the next. And even worse is the fact that Sean Marlow, with his Viking warrior beard and piercing blue eyes, always seems to be at the bottom of them.

---

Another wonderful story from Sheila Claydon.

---

Born and educated on the south coast of England, Sheila Claydon has gradually moved northwards across the UK. Now living in northwest England on a stunning stretch of unspoiled coastline, she finds walking a constant source of inspiration as well as a counterweight to the sedentary life of a writer. Interspersed with her writing is a long and varied career in health, education and employment. She likes to think she is a better writer because of those experiences, and also admits to basing some of her characters on people she has worked with in the past. Her motto is a quote by the late Ray Bradbury: 'First, find out what your hero wants. Then just follow him.'
 She starts with plots, chapter outlines, characterisation, each time she starts to write a new story. Then the hero takes over and she follows him instead...'

Zeig mal: Gesten

ZIEL | Interkulturelle Praxis und Diversity Management


Mangels gemeinsamer Sprache unterhalten wir uns oft mit Händen und Füßen. Körpersprache ist eine besondere Form der Kommunikation.

Es geht um die Verbindung von verbaler und nonverbaler Kommunikation, es geht um Verständigung

und Missverständnisse, es geht um Gesten der Macht und um Gesten der Alltagskommunikation. Ergänzt werden diese Informationen um Aktivitäten, Spiele und Übungen sowie um ein Karten-Set mit 32 Bildkarten, die für den Einsatz in Weiterbildungen, mit Schulklassen oder in der Jugendarbeit geeignet sind.

Das Buch richtet sich an Weiterbildnerinnen und Trainer, an Lehrerinnen und Sozialpädagogen, an Mitarbeiterinnen und Mitarbeiter sozialer und Gesundheits-Dienste sowie der Verwaltung.

Conflict

BookThug


SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2013 OTTAWA BOOK AWARD

SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2013 ARCHIBALD LAMPMAN AWARD

SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2013 RELIT AWARD

Conflict interweaves ghosts, bad communication, the uncanny and the archival, to create a collection of poems that break down remembrance into abandoned historic markers, jet fuel, keening, or teeth. What you are given (this is a gift) is an insistent refusal to silence or shift. In exchange, the reader must face the impossibility of erasure, a gritty resistance to mourn a fight. Conflict is a collection of red balloons that intersplices and interweaves through various forms of conflict that occur in language, motion, architecture, emotions; between individuals, systems, and mechanical silences.
