Sara Basic Course.
Thayer, James E.; Maraby, Julien
The basic plan of this course in Sara is modeled after "An Experimental Course in Hausa" (FSI 1965). The course uses short cycles consisting of mimicry followed by conversations built on the same vocabulary and syntactic pattern. The format has been condensed and altered. The course contains 95 cycles and would require approximately 50 hours to complete. The Sara is followed by English on the subsequent page rather than face to face. The cultural material contained in the course is oriented predominantly toward those persons studying the course in an American culture, and toward the introduction of American volunteers into a new culture. The topics covered in the cycles include: names, nationality, origin and locality, activities related to a summer Peace Corps situation, travel, days of the week, the months, birthplace, school, biography, professions, and anticipated Peace Corps activities.
