Bulgarian Basic Course.
This audiolingual basic course in modern Bulgarian consists of 136 lesson units in 13 volumes, supplemented by (1) a vocabulary to Volume I and II, (2) a supplementary text for Volume II, and (3) a vocabulary to Volume XII. The course, intended for the Defense Language Institute intensive language program, is designed to train native English language speakers to Level 3 proficiency in comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing. (Level 5 is native speaker proficiency.) A history of the Bulgarian language introduces Volume I. Explanations of the sound system of Bulgarian as it is represented in printed and longhand Cyrillic orthography, the pronunciation lesson format and rationale, transcription symbols, intonation and stress are followed by 15 pronunciation lessons, a statistical review of the dialogs which form a basic part of the texts, and vocabulary listings. Volume II, the "structural phase," continues the dialogs, cartoon guides, translations, and grammar drills, and presents additional grammar perception drills and analysis, as well as readings, class discussion questions, and homework materials. Emphasis on reading and writing increases in later volumes; the series concludes with an illustrated history of Bulgaria. Cultural content throughout reflects various aspects of life in Bulgaria.
