Readings from Samuel Clemens. The Audio-Lingual Literary Series I.
Imamura, Shigeo; Ney, James W.
This text and the other two volumes in the series (see AL 002 067 and AL 002 068) are intended for advanced courses in English for speakers of other languages and are designed to provide students with practice in the language skills necessary for college-level studies. The 22 lessons in this volume are based on two moderately simplified selections from Samuel Clemens: "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County," a short story, and "Jim Runs Away" from "Huckleberry Finn." Each lesson is based on a part of a reading and contains various drills and exercises: (1) a pronunciation drill contrasting phonemes in minimal pairs, words, and short sentences; (2) a vocabulary exercise in which the student must replace the word in the cue with the synonym used in the readings; (3) a structure drill of the binary transformation type; (4) a question and answer drill; and (5) a composition exercise in which a paragraph must be rewritten by combining sentences according to the instructions given. Each lesson is closely related to those preceding and following it. At the end of each of the two parts, the original version of the reading is given, followed by supplementary exercises to help the student study on his own. (DO)
