Basic Chad Arabic: The Pre-Speech Phase.
Absi, Samir Abu; Sinaud, Andre
The first of a three-volume course in Chad Arabic, principally developed for those seeking to acquire proficiency in speaking and comprehension, emphasizes the passive recognition of linguistic features of the target language. It is suggested for use in intensive training programs of no longer than three weeks' duration. This phase of the course consists of 60 brief units of work each having two parts which deal with brief grammatical explanations and illustrations of the point under consideration, and a comprehension section requiring the student to listen to an instructor or a tape and write the information asked for. In this volume, the comprehension work consists of various types of activities including transcription, translation, and identification of different types of grammatical units and structures. Tests covering materials already studied are given periodically to indicate the progress of the students in the course. For the companion documents see FL002470 and FL002472. (RL)
