Thai Basic Course.
Defense Language Inst., Washington, DC.
These 10 volumes comprise Lessons 1-80 in an introductory course in Thai. The general format, as presented in the first unit, consists of (1) a question-answer pattern drill, which introduces new grammatical structures, (2) a dialog, containing the new structures and vocabulary, (3) a recombination dialog, presenting the new words and patterns in different situations, (4) grammar notes, and (5) a word list. The dialogs throughout are translated, and picture cues are used to accompany the dialogs. The writing system is introduced gradually, with special material to develop reading and writing skills. Additional materials introduced in later lessons provide for guiding free conversation and discussion, and homework assignments. This course is designed to bring the student's proficiency to Level 3 in comprehending, speaking, reading, and writing Thai. (Native-speaker proficiency is Level 5.) See related document AL 001 554.
