Each lesson is divided into four or five sections: (1) tests and dialogues, (2) grammatical and cultural notes, (3) vocabulary building, (4) pronunciation practice in the first three lessons, and (5) exercises. The introduction to the book provides information on the Mano language and its dialects, pronunciation variation, and English loan words.
