English Through Patterns. Ingles 1: Part 1 and 2.
Ramsey, Robert M.
"English Through Patterns" is an oral approach text designed for Spanish students of English as a foreign language on the beginning level. Material is presented in selected basic sentence patterns sequenced and controlled so that each new structure introduces new items and reinforces previously taught patterns. Part I (Lessons 1-6) presents patterns using the present tense of BE; Part II (Lessons 7-12) continues with further BE patterns and introduces the present tense with other verbs. Each lesson begins with new patterns incorporated in a dialog or story. Structures are presented in frames followed by: (A) Exercise, which serves as an explanatory device; (B) Drill, designed to establish the new structure as an automatic response; and (C) Practice, where the student is required to use the structure in a less restricted framework and thus assure comprehension and control. "Programmed Review Sections" in Spanish follow every third lesson; these sections are intended to enable the individual student to check by himself his grasp of the items taught in each specific section. Vocabulary lists follow Parts 1 and 2. (AMM)
