AN ACTIVE INTRODUCTION TO NEWSPAPER SWAHILI.
Foreign Service (Dept. of State), Washington, DC. Foreign Service Inst.
EACH OF THE 25 SHORT LESSONS IN THIS BOOKLET IS BUILT AROUND A STORY FROM AN EAST AFRICAN NEWSPAPER. THE STUDENT IS EXPECTED TO LISTEN TO AND REPEAT BASIC SENTENCES, LISTEN TO AND READ THE TEXT, AND COMPLETE THE ACCOMPANYING EXERCISES. THUS, HE NOT ONLY LEARNS TO READ NEWSPAPER ARTICLES BUT ALSO ACTIVELY DEMONSTRATES HOW MUCH HE HAS COMPREHENDED AND CAN USE. THE EXERCISES INCLUDE PRACTICING GRAMMATICAL POINTS, ANSWERING QUESTIONS ABOUT THE TEXT IN SWAHILI, AND GENERATING SHORT SENTENCES USING NEW VOCABULARY AND GRAMMAR. THIS TEXT IS CLOSELY COORDINATED WITH "A LEARNER'S SYNOPSIS OF SWAHILI STRUCTURE" (AL 000 465) AND ASSUMES SOME PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE OF SWAHILI STRUCTURE. (JD)
