American English, An Integrated Series for International Students. Guided Composition Writing.
This text is the fifth of a comprehensive series of materials designed for teaching English to international students in the American Language Institute of New York University. The series constitutes the Institute's Elementary Program; mastery of its contents is the requisite for undertaking all subsequent work in English at the intermediate and advanced levels. The 30 model compositions in this text are topic-oriented, representing aspects of American culture of particular interest to university-level foreign students. Each composition topic is developed by means of familiar quotations and common expressions pertinent to the topic, various types of discussion questions, and a wide range of oral and written exercises. Concluding the volume is a special section on paragraphs, compositions, and letters (business and social). (AMM)
