Belizean Creole: Communication and Culture Handbook. Peace Corps Language Handbook Series.
Dayley, Jon P.
This handbook provides lessons and exercises for Peace Corps volunteers learning to communicate in Belizean Creole. The 41 lessons emphasize such aspects of Belizean culture as asking for directions, talking about personal feelings, introducing people, visiting, when to use Creole, Creole food, and the economy. Each lesson includes a conversation in both English and Creole, activities, a proverb, and a list of new vocabulary words. General suggestions are made for enhancing language learning. This handbook is part of a set which includes a grammar workbook, a teacher's guide, and a glossary. This component focuses on culturally appropriate communication and is designed for use in conjunction with the grammar workbook, which focuses on formal linguistic features. (RW)
