Le PTT: More than Just Letters.
Gilbertson, Lyle B.; Teerink, Robert D.
This bilingual French-English unit on the French Post Office (PTT) is intended for beginning and intermediate students of French and is appropriate for individualized learning situations. The introduction specifies the general goal (to enable students to use the varied services of the French postal system), and outlines five specific performance objectives and general instructions to the teacher. The learning activities, illustrated with pen and ink drawings, are divided into four sections: sending letters and postcards, sending a package, making a telephone call, and becoming familiar with the other services of the PTT. Each of these sections revolves around a situation and includes the dialogue, necessary vocabulary, and self-tests. A final "get-it-together" test and a crossword puzzle complete the unit. (AMH)
