Intensive Course in English.
English Language Services, Inc., Washington, DC.
The "Intensive Course in English" is a series of six books: Elementary, Part 1; Elementary Part 2; Intermediate (Volume I); Advanced 1 (Volume II); Advanced 2 (Volume III); Specialized Studies (Volume IV--Education), and 250 pre-recorded tapes. This series was designed for use in programs with emphasis in oral-aural training, and the development of basic reading and comprehension skills in English. Intended primarily for adults, the series may also be used with secondary school level foreign students and with native speakers of English desiring to acquire an acceptable standard dialect. Any of the books may be used independently of the others, either in intensive training programs (e.g., 30 hours per week) or in regular non-intensive courses. The Teacher's Manual accompanying Elementary Parts 1 and 2 contains a general section on language teaching methodology, a detailed description of the first two books, and a guide to use of the materials in the classroom and language laboratory. A description of the materials in the remaining four books, and a guide to use of the materials in teaching is given in the Introduction in each book. The Instructor's Supplement for Specialized Studies contains a key to materials recorded on tape which do not appear in written form in the text. (Additional materials at intermediate level and a graded readers series are in preparation.) (AMM)
