Kiribati (Gilbertese): Communication and Culture Handbook. Peace Corps Language Handbook Series.
This Kiribati communication and culture handbook presents 40 situations in which the volunteer is likely to be involved in the Gilbert Islands, and establishes classroom activities that require the students to exchange messages in a way that is appropriate to the cultural context. Most of the lessons are divided into "basic material" and "supplementary material" sections. Generally there are seven parts to each lesson: (1) objective, (2) basic material and translation, (3) cultural usage notes, (4) class activities, (5) outside activities, (6) references, and (7) vocabulary worksheets. An English-Kiribati glossary completes the volume. (AMH)
