Set of Books - 1000 Worte Englisch, circa 1938 Document Reg. No: HT 538

Summary:
Set of English Language books titled '1000 Worte Englisch' which were purchased in Switzerland or Austria by Hans and Erica Wolf on their way to Australia in 1938. Hans found the books particularly helpful as he struggled to learn English.

These books are interesting as they were standard educational booklets for German speakers learning English rather than ones specifically produced for the non-English speaking immigrant.

Set of English language booklets with various exercises. The text is in German and English.
