This volume is the first of two volumes of a basic elementary course in Indonesian (Malay). The aim of these materials is to prepare the student to communicate and read Indonesian as a native speaker does. The books are designed to be used with the help of a native-speaking informant who furnishes the model of speech for students to imitate. The informant is to speak only Indonesian. In the ideal situation, the work of the informant is supplemented by a linguist well versed in Indonesian who can explain the grammar sections and supervise the work of the informant. Only one-quarter or less of class time should be spent with the linguist. If a linguist is not available, the students can usually find the answers to their questions by carefully reading the explanations in the book. The lessons consist of basic sentences concerning a given situation, pattern practices, free conversations, comprehension exercises, grammar points, and exercises. For Volume 2, see FL 003 186.
