Spoken Chad Arabic.
Absi, Samir Abu; Sinaud, Andre
This intensive course is designed to teach students to understand and speak Chad Arabic. The course is intended to be covered in approximately 360 hours in the classroom and the language laboratory. About 90 hours should be occupied with the pre-speech phase, which emphasizes passive recognition rather than active production. This phase consists of 60 lessons and seven tests. The remaining time is occupied by the active phase, which puts more emphasis on speaking the language. It consists of 40 lessons which are supplemented by taped materials to be used in the laboratory. The typical lesson in phase II includes a dialogue, vocabulary, grammar, and exercises. The subjects of the dialogues are (1) Greetings; (2) Directions; (3) New Arrival; (4) The Family; (5) Getting Around; (6) Telling Time; (7) Holidays; (8) The Carpenter; (9) The Doctor; (10) The Market; (11) Departure; (12) The Weather; and (13) The Movies. A phonemic alphabet has been adopted to transcribe Arabic utterances. (CFM)
