Contemporary Cambodian: The Land and the Economy.
Ehrman, Madeline E.; And Others
"Contemproary Cambodian" consists of seven parts: the "Grammatical Sketch," the "Introduction," four intermediate modules, and a Cambodian-English glossary containing all the words in the series. After completing the "Introduction," a student can study the intermediate modules in any order, since each serves as a partial review of the others. This module focuses on geographic and economic topics. It contains 15 lessons, questions to accompany the listening comprehension passages (on tape), and a Cambodian-English glossary listing all the words contained both in this book and the "Introduction." Each lesson centers on one topic, which serves as the subject for reading and conversation practice. Lessons typically consist of two or three reading passages, a dialogue, seven or eight drills, vocabulary, and exercises called "applications," which reinforce analogy formation and give students a chance to use new words and structures. At least one of the reading passages in each lesson is taken from a Cambodian publication. The dialogues, drills, and application exercises are designed to prepare the student to discuss the kinds of topics suggested at the end of each lesson. Romanized script is provided only for those words for which the pronunciation is not evident from the spelling. (Author/LG)
