Ecuadorian Quechua Basic Course. Part 1: Introduction and In-Class Modules.
Ott, Clarence Eric; And Others
Two basic premises of learning theory underlie the structure of the instructional materials contained in this volume: the process of language is essentially one of converting meaning to sound, and one learns a language as he generates and tests his own hypotheses about the language. Fifteen units, arranged in microwave cycles, are presented in this volume for classroom use. Each of the cycles contains a microdialogue and subsequent activities based upon the pattern of the dialogue. A representative cycle contains these activities: (1) model and grammatical observations, (2) repetition exercises, (3) response drills, (4) personalized questions, (5) controlled conversation, (6) interpreting drill, and (7) activities and "coping" situations. A short Quechua vocabulary is included. For the companion document see FL 002 853. (RL)
