Turkish Basic Course. Graded Reader.
Agrali, Selman N., Comp.; And Others
The present Reader is the third and final volume in the Foreign Service Institute's "Turkish Basic Course." (See ED 013 451 and ED 024 050 for Units 1-30 and Units 31-50.) Reading selections are arranged in approximate ascending order of difficulty with some grouping of selections in subject matter categories. The selections, which have not been edited or simplified, are taken from history; geography; religion; proverbial, prose and poetic literature; reviews and political writing. The material is designed for the further expansion of vocabulary and classroom discussion, and constitutes a "reasonably representative sample of the simpler forms of current Turkish and of Turkish literature." The readings provide the student with a bridge between materials written specifically for pedagogical purposes and the ungraded material of literature and the current press. The numerous illustrations include both contemporary photographs and traditional art forms. A Turkish-English glossary appears at the end of the volume. (AMM)
