Spoken Hausa for Non-Hausa Beginners.
Akamba, Bawah; Denteh, A. Crakye
This text contains 62 lessons in Hausa for the student of Hausa as a second Language. The principal emphasis of the lessons is in developing skills in the spoken language, and study is preferable with a native speaker of Hausa. The use of English is to be avoided except when absolutely necessary. Because of the attention given to oral skills, the teaching of formal grammar is also avoided, and blackboard notes are not to be provided for the students to copy. Each lesson is structured around a specific situation or topic, such as greetings, the market place, or parts of the body, and occasionally around an element of grammar. Repetition is the basic method used; students repeat a given dialogue after the teacher, and then memorize it. Substitution drills and question-answering are then used to reinforce what the student has learned. Review lessons are interspersed at regular intervals. (CLK)
