Luganda Basic Course.
Kamoga, Frederick Katabazi; Stevick, Earl W.
This "Luganda Basic Course" is not a course in the usual sense. Rather, it is a collection of materials which can be useful in the interaction between teachers and learners. It follows the method by which foreigners interact when they do not speak a common language: personal names and names of respective countries and cities are exchanged. Geographical directions and locations are mentioned, as well as other things that can be easily referred to (items of clothing, food and furniture). These types of activities occupy the first 21 lessons. Variations and vocabulary are practiced in pattern drills. Interspersed throughout the remaining lessons (there are 94 lessons in the text) are dialogs and monologs. Pattern drills, questions, pronunciation exercises, dictations, variations on the dialogs, and glossaries are employed throughout. Kinship charts and a glossary are appended. (DO)
