Modern Spoken Cambodian. Yale Linguistic Series.
Huffman, Franklin E.
The aim of this volume is to provide the student with a thorough command of the basic structures of standard spoken Cambodian. The course is based on the audio-oral method of language teaching developed by the Intensive Language Program of the American Council of Learned Societies and used successfully during World War II, but modified to take into account advances in language teaching techniques since that time. The course consists of one unit of pronunciation drills, 25 dialogue units, and five review units. If a native speaker is unavailable to the student, tapes of the dialogue and comprehension sections of each lesson can be purchased at cost from the Foreign Language Laboratory at Yale University. The book is designed for use concurrently with the author's "Cambodian System of Writing and Beginning Reader" in an intensive or semi-intensive beginning course. (See AL 002 331.) (Author/AMM)
