Lecciones de Quechua. Primer Nivel, Segundo Nivel (Quechua Lessons. First Level, Second Level).
Herrero, Joaquin; And Others
The two volumes comprising this text represent the beginning and intermediate levels of a course in the Quechua language for speakers of Spanish. Based on the "Audio Lingual Materials" format, the ten lessons in the the first volume generally contain: (1) a short dialog and a supplementary vocabulary section or adapted dialog which present new structures, (2) explanation of new grammatical structures, presented in non-technical linguistic terminology, and (3) a number of repetition, substitution, translation, and substitution-transformation drills. The volume is prefaced by an examination of Quecha phonology and extensive contrastive drills on minimal pairs. Both volumes append a vocabulary list of the Quechua words used and their Spanish equivalents. The second volume follows the same format as the first with added reading selections, questions to answer, and guided conversational exercises. All Quechua forms are based on the actual usages of the Cochabamba area in Bolivia and are transcribed in the phonemic script recommended by the Tercer Congreso Indigenists Interamericano. Tapes are available for both volumes. (JD)
