• Weber Speakers Amp Attenuator Mass III

    This MASS is unique in that it has an actual tone stack for the speaker signal -- BASS - MIDS - TREBLE. It also has the internal speaker motor for the load, and has a variable line out signal with volume and tone. The unit has two speaker output jacks to support multiple cabinets. The three tone controls can take the signal from whisper quiet to full on with slight humps in the bass, mids, and treble. Additionally, the MASS III has an active bypass circuit with a footswitch so you can run attenuated or bypassed. The footswitch has a 12' cable, and the power pack for the switching relays is a 6VDC wall wart. With no power applied, the attenuator is engaged. Like all Weber attenuators, you can turn all attenuator controls to zero, pull the speaker, and just use the line out, making the MASS III an (expensive) dummy load.

  • Liaisons: An Introduction to French, Enhanced (World Languages)

    LIAISONS is an innovative beginning-level French program firmly grounded in principles of communicative language teaching and research in second language acquisition.

With an engaging mystery film shot on location in Montreal, Quebec, and Paris, the program provides a rich array of communicative activities designed to stimulate interaction inside and outside the classroom. The underlying pedagogical framework in LIAISONS asks students to first discover new vocabulary and grammar through different mediums, then connect form and meaning through a set of confidence-building activities, and finally, actively create language.

  • Attitudes of German Non-Native Speakers of English Towards British Varieties: A Case Study on the Example of the TV-Series ‘Downton Abbey’

    Seminar paper from the year 2015 in the subject Speech Science / Linguistics, grade: 2,7, LMU Munich (Anglistik und Amerikanistik), course: Accents of English, language: English, abstract: The reason to conduct this study lies within the question of how German (and therefore non-native) speakers of English evaluate different ways to speak the English language. How do they judge its speakers to be as a person and is this dependent on the variety he or she speaks? It will be interesting to see whether what way of speech they personally prefer to speak or what kind of education they received influences their judgement of the speech samples presented to them. A lot of research of attitudes towards varieties for the educational sector has been done, but the aim of this paper is rather to show whether this attitude is also influenced by visual stimuli and how non-natives in Germany evaluate the different ways of speaking English, to have an impression of how these attitudes in everyday encounters may look like. Consequently, there are several hypotheses which are to be tested by two questionnaires and with the help of the TV series "Downtown Abbey".

  • French for Starters

    Ideal for the adult learner considering a holiday in France, who has either learnt no French before or is conscious of having learnt 'the wrong kind'. The content of the French for Starters Paperback is based on what a traveller would need to say when on holiday in France in predictable, and some amusingly unpredictable, situations. The first part deals with 'What you will need to say' and covers simple grammar points as they arise. The second part lets the learner loose on what he or she has learned in the first part, in a variety of practical situations. The accompanying cassettes provide lively examples and give short, memorable bursts of practice. A particularly attractive feature of the book are the cartoons by Celia Weber.
