Beginning Kpelle: A Course for Speakers of English.
Sinclair, William C.; And Others
The curriculum guide for a beginning level course in Kpelle for English speakers first offers 25 lessons designed for a 300-hour course. The materials, developed for classroom use, are suitable for use with a native Kpelle-speaking tutor, and suggestions for this application are offered. Each lesson is divided into three sections. The first consists of useful expressions and dialogues for memorization. The second section, containing grammar points and drills, is a systematic introduction to the basic features of the language. The third section contains cultural information and presents language learning activities such as improvisational use of the diaglogues. The guide concludes with an extra unit on learning language outside the classroom through the aid of a tutor.
