Learn Japanese--Elementary School Text, Volume III.
Sato, Yaeko; And Others
This volume is the teacher's text for the first semester program on level two (fourth grade). See AL 001 718 for Volume I and ED 019 666 for Volume II. Text materials for the second level continue to introduce new structures systematically, according to the pupils' interest, ability, and rate of learning. Dialogs for level two, Volumes III and IV, are centered around the daily activities of a Japanese boy and girl--"Telephone Conversation,""At the Toy Shop,""Going to the Zoo,""Weekend Activities"--for example. Cultural aspects of present day Japan are thus presented in dialog situations as well as in the cultural notes for the teacher's use. As in the previous volumes, there are 15 lessons arranged in five units; the first two lessons in each unit introduce new vocabulary and structures while the third lesson consists of a review. A new format for the repetition drills allows them to be used as sentence expansion drills. Also, in addition to the simple substitution drills, a substitution-correlation drill has been introduced in this volume. It is felt that the students are now ready to generate complete sentences following the teacher's model. For Volume IV, see AL 001 744. This course will be revised before publication for the general public. For further information write to Mrs. Esther Sato, Director, Japanese Language Project, at the above address. (JD)
