This book contains a short, enjoyable, bilingual story which is more than just a language lecture. The story is conceived in a similar way for both students and video learners, and it can be used for either group work directed by an instructor or for individual study. In the classroom, the story is an invitation to discussion and conversation about current topics like ecology and regional studies because the story is set in the real countryside of northern Portugals port wine region. The short story offers a number of exercises for reading and textual comprehension, vocabulary, and grammar and also includes a final exam with an answer key, extra tables for regular and irregular verbs, and an audio-cd, which enhances individual study. In this story, the reader goes on an adventure with a drop of rain, which provides insights into some facets of Portuguese culture. In the interplay between the fun of adventure and the longing for home, the desire for freedom and a solid family life, domestic happiness wins in the end, which encourages the next adventure. Includes CD. (Dr. Ludwig Reichert Verlag 2014)
