Conversation Drills in Everyday Cantonese.
This text is the second of a series being especially prepared for use in the Hong Kong International School. (See related document AL 002 002.) Its suggested users also include tourists and "the serious foreign students of Cantonese." Each lesson is designed for two to three contact hours with an instructor, plus an equal amount of individual study. The lesson materials are comprised of the following: (1) conversational dialogs, (2) new vocabulary, (3) sentence pattern drills, (4) translation exercises, and (5) Chinese characters. All Cantonese appears in Yale romanization. A description of the sounds and tones of Cantonese is included in the introductory section. Three tapes, published by the same publisher, accompany the text. (AMM)
