Gefahr am Strand
In this two-part book club meeting we'll read and discuss "Gefahr am Strand." The whole story takes place in Sankt Peter-Ording, a popular vacation destination for Germans. It's an A1 level book with accompanying mp3s so you can read, listen, and follow along. After you've registered, then you need to purchase the book and start reading!
Here's the description from the back cover:
"Toni, 15, freut sich riesig auf die Sommerferien. Er möchte mit seinen Freunden am Strand von Sankt Peter-Ording surfen. Und dann das! Christina, seine Cousine aus München, kommt nach Norddeutschland. Eines Abends kommt es in der Nordsee zu einer gefährlichen Situation."
If you can read and understand this description, you will love the book!

3. Come to Book Club!
We have our first meeting (we meet for 1 hour) and each participant shares one technique that helped her/him understand the book better. I give a little bit of homework. Sometimes it's a crossword puzzle, sometimes it's searching for more information, sometimes it's grammar work...it's different every time!
Between the first and second meetings, you re-read the book using the techniques from the other participants and do the homework.
4. We have our second meeting.
This meeting is also for one hour where we meet, discuss, and share how our understanding of German has grown through reading this book.
