A COLLECTION OF MATERIALS IS PRESENTED TO AID STUDENTS IN LEARNING SPANISH. SPANISH IS PRESENTED IN UNITS RANGING FROM PROVERBS, RIDDLES, SONGS, ANECDOTES, SHORT-SHORT STORIES, TO SKITS FOR QUICK ASSIMILATION, EASY RETENTION, AND NORMAL UNCOMPLICATED CONVERSATION. SKILLS SOUGHT FOR ARE ABILITY TO UNDERSTAND, SPEAK, AND WRITE SPANISH. THE SYSTEMATIC USE OF THE MASTER TAPE OF THE TEXT IS ESSENTIAL. STUDENTS HEAR THE SELF-CONTAINED UNITS ON TAPE WHILE THE INSTRUCTOR PRESENTS CLARIFYING AND REINFORCING GESTURES OR PROPS. STUDENTS REPEAT CHORALLY AND INDIVIDUALLY ALL NEW MATERIALS UPON HEARING THEM, WITHOUT SEEING THE BOOK. STUDENTS ANSWER "PREGUNTAS" AND COMPLETE THE "EJERCICIOS," ACT OUT THE SKITS, OR ORALLY SUMMARIZE UNITS IN THEIR OWN WORDS, WRITTEN SUMMARIES ARE REQUIRED IN A SUBSEQUENT COURSE. STUDENTS WRITE FROM "DICTADES" IN CLASS AND THUS ASSOCIATE WRITTEN SYMBOLS WITH THE SPOKEN WORD. AFTER ACQUIRING MORE AURAL-ORAL SKILLS, STUDENTS BEGIN TO READ IN SPANISH. THIS SKILL EVOLVES AS A LOGICAL BY-PRODUCT OF THE PREVIOUSLY ACQUIRED SKILLS--UNDERSTANDING, SPEAKING, AND WRITING.
