Oromo for Beginners. Language Materials.
The purpose of this text is to introduce the Oromo language, spoken in parts of Ethiopia and Kenya, to Peace Corps volunteers. The Oromo language (also referred to as Galla) used in the text is based on the standard language spoken in the western and southwestern provinces of Wollega, Illubabor, and Kaffa. However, with dialectal differences taken into account, these materials can be used to teach the Oromo language in any area. The materials have been presented in such a way that the teacher and the students can arrange them in lessons to suite their particular needs and learning styles. The text includes a pronunciation key, 20 units on different topics, and a unit of situational conversations. Grammatical information and a list of common verbs are appended. (NCR)
