Persian Basic Course: Volume V, Lessons 53-64.
Defense Language Inst., Monterey, CA.
The fifth of 10 volumes of a basic course in Persian is presented that is designed for use in the Defense Language Institute's intensive programs for native English speakers. The central feature of the daily lesson is the structured dialogue, which systematically incorporates a number of grammatical features. Grammar is not explained through conventional explanations or discussions. A series of perception drill patterns are used prior to the introduction of the daily dialogue, which is followed by a translation in idiomatic English. The grammar analysis section contains a summary of the various functions and usage of a given item, and grammar drills utilize the new structural patterns as well as new vocabulary and review vocabulary. In the reading and question section, assimilated lexical items are used in the narrative to provide a situational application of the material. This volume attempts to present common situations and the normal mode of speech appropriate to each situation in the dialogues. The reading section and dialogues are designed to prepare the student for understanding newspapers and radio/televison. Military terminology is also gradually introduced, and a few of the lessons are based on films about Iran. Tapes accompany the text. (SW)
