"Large industries have already introduced a system of profit-sharing with their employees. But what is much more significant: in all industrial concerns the workers enjoy the legal right of having a voice in matters that concern them. They get a third of the seats on the boards of directors of joint stock companies (one half of the seats in the mining and steel industries)."
"Act in such a way that the maxim of your will may at all times also have validity as the principle of a universal law."
The texts are also outdated. Besides the lack of any material from the past forty years and the use of the old spelling throughout, I suppose this fact mostly only matters for the "Über Deutschland" passages, which are intended to paint a broad picture of modern Germany.Read more ›
If you could learn even some of this German, imagine the laugh when you said in conversation 'Vor dem Handeln, im Handelm hat er alle Ursache, den Versatand beweglich zu erhalten', which in English is 'Before acting, in acting, he has every reason for keeping his intelligence mobile....'.
Something more suitable would be German Easy Reader: Super 500 (German Edition)
This book is fantastic. In two days I've made my way through the first ten pieces, Sometimes by just reading the English translation but more often by working my way through the German vocabularies and piecing meanings together by the side by side translations. Tonight I started recognizing more words and understanding sentences more than I did two days ago. If you're willing to be diligent and patient with yourself, this book may be a wonderful tool for you to strengthen your German skills.
About me: I'm a highly visual learner and read a lot as a child. The way this book is laid out is very helpful for me. Very quickly I've started recognizing the literary conventions of German writers such as Goethe, Lessing and the Brothers Grimm. Tonight I even read a sentence that I didn't have to translate (when I would have two days ago).
