E.I.L. Swiss German: An Audio Lingual Course with Correlated Tapes, Volume I.
This basic textbook for Swiss German contains 10 units. The text is adaptable for use in an academic institution (anticipated completion time is one academic year), in an intensive program (completion time is 90-120 hours), or in independent study. The vocabulary is limited, and only basic and essential grammar is included. Although audiolingual skills are stressed, reading and writing skills may be taught at the discretion of the teacher. Each unit contains a conversation, oral-drill materials on the conversation and new vocabulary, pronunciation drills, extensive pattern practices on structural items, conversational drills, translation exercises, narratives for reading practice, a grammatical synopsis, a lexical summary, and supplementary materials for teaching Swiss German culture. Correlated, taped materials should be used with the text. (DD)
