Tanzanian Swahili: Communication and Culture Handbook. Peace Corps Language Handbook Series.
Hawkinson, Annie K.
This handbook presents a variety of different social and cultural situations in which the Peace Corps volunteer is likely to be involved in Tanzania. It establishes classroom activities that require the students to exchange messages in a way that is appropriate to the context. Generally, new vocabulary and language structures are introduced in the context of a conversation or narrative. The lessons are in both Swahili and English. The text is illustrated with pen-and-ink drawings. (AMH)
