An Introduction to Spoken Sesotho.
Nussbaum, Loren V.; Lijane, Gershon T.
The present volume is a 176-unit course in spoken Sesotho, designed to prepare Peace Corps volunteers to communicate using basic sentence patterns in the most commonly encountered cultural contexts. The units, or "microwave cycles" are presented in two phases, "manipulative" and "communicative" oral practices. The Sesotho material appears in phonemic transcription, with English glosses. Extensive cultural as well as grammatical notes to the student make up an integral part of the course. See AL 002 778 (Introduction to Spoken Baoule) for a brief explanation of the "microwave" approach. [Not available in hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (AMM)
