A Course in Spoken English for Navajos: Second Year Program. Language Laboratory No. II.
This manual presents lesson plans for a second year course in spoken English for Navahos, based upon one hour of instruction five days a week. It contains a review of troublesome sounds, conversational dialogues, and work with the grammatical structure of spoken English. Actual conversational situations are used to teach the speaking patterns necessary to function in a given situation. Automatic two- and three-way exchanges are also used. The manual concentrates on phonics, cultural enrichment through the presentation of prose and poetry, and exercises to increase skills in spoken English. Included are plans for work in the language laboratory. (Author/SK)
