An Introduction to Spoken Bolivian Quechua.
Bills, Garland D.; And Others
This text is intended for use in a college-level course in Bolivian Quechua for speakers of English. It is divided into thirty units and is specifically designed for a two-semester academic year of fifteen weeks a semester. The entire text is highly structured, carefully graded, and organized on the principles of the audiolingual approach to language teaching. Every fifth unit of these materials is devoted solely to review. Each non-review unit typically contains six sections: (1) a conversation centered on a typical Quechua family and their activities; (2) an additional vocabulary section, which introduces new words in full sentences and provides analogy drills with these new words on the basis of sentences from the conversation; (3) a set of phonological, review, or special drills; (4) a set of pattern drills for the intensive practice of selected grammatical phenomena, with brief explanations of each topic; (5) an analogical conversation placing known lexical items and grammatical constructions in new combinations; and (6) a brief reading section. A set of visual aids, included at the end of the book, depicts a situation for each phrase of the conversation and additional vocabulary. Tapes for the course are available from the Language Laboratories Office of the University of Texas at Austin. (DO)
