Defense Language Inst., Monterey, CA.
An advanced reading text designed for use with a basic course in Persian offered by the Defense Language Institute is presented. The course is an intensive program for native English speakers. The book, which is an adaptation of material originally developed in Iran, is used when the students have completed volumes one to eight. The material is idiomatic and covers a wide range of topics that are rich in cultural information and is basically conversational in style. The text is introduced around the 30th week of instruction and continues to the end of the 47-week course. It is presented to the students in 68 lessons, which require them to practice listening, speaking, reading, and writing, both in class and at home. A supplementary volume containing a glossary and cultural notes is published under separate cover. (SW)
