Barrutia, Richard; And Others
This report consists of three parts--(1) an overview of the use of the Ampex Intrinsic Device (AID) in beginning Spanish classes, (2) a description of the Course Author Language (CAL) computer program, and (3) a description of a supplementary project for the testing of the Appleton-Century-Crofts-Center for Applied Linguistics French Program. The workings of the AID machine are explained and the results of two quarters of its use are discussed. A great deal of additional information about AID, including statistical results, a sample module, and notes on program preparation, program recording, coding, and budget is presented. The CAL program's development and possible uses are described with special reference to problem areas, and to possible ties with AID. Presentation of the French program and recommendations for its use are considered. (AF)
