Hi from Germany

I've just ordered my first e-reader, the Kindle 3 Wifi, and I'm waiting impatiently for it to arrive...

As I teach languages at a college of further education I'd welcome any suggestions from other teachers on the forum about teaching books that are especially worthwhile reading. I'll be changing schools next summer and will then teach students with low motivation and difficult home backgrounds so I'm looking forward to using my Kindle while commuting to learn more about increasing student motivation, for example. Any tips are welcome.

Hi Vivacity,

and to MR with !

You have come to the right place .

I guess that you did notice the german subforum over here already?

Also have look at this thread

to get a feeling for the place and for some useful answers.

Have fun! And greetings from the Ostsee !

Good to have your company, Viv. Hope the new job goes well. Reading your post, by the way, I think I might have just the right book for your new students, one my own indie publishing house released recently that's a lot of fun and bursting with encouragement for youngsters who might beel stuck in a rut. Check out *The Movie* in the bookstore section of our website (link below). If you think it might be helpful to you, please just drop me a line and I'll be happy to send it in any format you like with our compliments and without DRM so that you can share it with the class. Best wishes. Neil -- ntmarrATbewrite.net (but use the @ sign, of course)

Thanks!

Thank you for the warm welcome

It's good to see a few other Germans here (although I am also English). Hi, Beachwanderer! I live in the sunny Ruhrgebiet.

Thanks for the tip about the book, Neilmarr. Not too sure that the subject of the book would make my new school head very happy, but it sounds like a great read.

My Kindle STILL hasn't arrived. Here's the status:

November 12, 2010 08:04:00 PM KOELN (COLOGNE) DE Completed customs clearance process
November 11, 2010 06:33:00 PM KOELN (COLOGNE) DE Completed customs clearance process
November 10, 2010 08:10:00 PM KOELN (COLOGNE) DE Completed customs clearance process
November 9, 2010 11:35:00 AM KOELN (COLOGNE) DE Completed customs clearance process
November 8, 2010 03:19:44 PM Hebron KY US Shipment has left seller facility and is in transit

Honestly, how often does the thing have to got through the customs clearance process?!

Cripes! Be sure and let us know when it does arrive, assuming, of course, it ever does (LOL).

Still waiting...

My Kindle seems to very popular with the customs officers in Cologne. Just hope they remember to send it on once they're finished with it....
