FRENCH THROUGH TELEVISION.
AN EARLY MORNING TELEVISION COURSE IN ELEMENTARY FRENCH IS DESCRIBED. THE COURSE IS CONDUCTED PRIMARILY IN FRENCH AND BUILDS FROM ZERO KNOWLEDGE, TEACHING A SMALL HIGH-UTILITY VOCABULARY. INTAKE OF VOCABULARY AND STRUCTURE IS GENTLY GRADED IN SENTENCES MADE UNDERSTANDABLE BY MEANS OF PICTURE-SITUATIONS. EACH LESSON CONSISTS OF THE FILM LESSON OF THE WEEK, LIVE APPLICATION OF VOCABULARY AND STRUCTURE, AND ONE OR MORE EARLIER FILM LESSONS AS REVIEW. THE RELATION OF THE PROGRAM TO THE TEXT, "FRENCH THROUGH PICTURES," IS EXPLAINED. EACH FILM LESSON PRESENTS A CHAIN OF TWENTY TO THIRTY RELATED SENTENCES PICTORIALLY EXPLAINED. THE FIRST TWELVE LESSONS FOLLOW THE POCKET BOOK SELF-TEACHING TEXT EXACTLY, EXCEPT THAT THEY DEVELOP THE PICTORIAL INTERPRETATION MORE FULLY. AFTER THE FIRST TWELVE LESSONS, ORIGINAL SEQUENCES ARE USED, THEY ENABLE MASTERY OF THE VOCABULARY AND STRUCTURE CONTAINED IN THE BOOK BY APPLYING THEM IN A RANGE OF NEW SITUATIONS WHICH HOLD THE STUDENT'S INTEREST. LESSON PROCEDURE IS ALSO DESCRIBED, AS WELL AS A LISTING AND DESCRIPTION OF SUCH AIDS TO STUDY AS THE SELF-HELP POCKET BOOK, RECORDINGS OF THE PARENT TEXT SPACED FOR SENTENCE-BY-SENTENCE IMITATION OF A NATIVE VOICE SPEECH MODEL, FILMSTRIPS FOR CLASSROOM USE, AND A PACKAGED FILM COURSE.
