LBRIG Newsletter: The Trimestrial Publication of the Language by Radio Interest Group, Vol. V, No.1, September, 1976.
Garfinkel, Alan, Ed.; And Others
This issue of the Language by Radio Interest Group newsletter contains: an article by Paul A. Gaeng on his experience as a radio listener, an article by Richard E. Wood on "Radio Peking," and a partial reprint of frequency listings from the January 1976 number. Gaeng reports that, when he was a student in Geneva, he developed skills as a professional translator and conference interpreter by listening to radio news broadcasts given in a foreign language and translating the news into other languages. The article by Wood reports that Radio Peking has resumed broadcasts of lessons in Kuayu (Standard Chinese) in English for listeners in North America on short waves. The schedule and frequencies for the fall season of Kuayu broadcasts are listed, and a free English textbook to accompany the broadcast is announced. (SW)
