Reading instruction is stressed throughout, and the following other topics are covered: listening comprehension, grammar, pattern drills, vocabulary, composition, methodology, testing and literature interpretation. Suggestions for supplementary reading and home assignments are given in each part of the syllabus. (PMP)
