An Intermediate-Advanced Level German Refresher Course: Book 2, Part 2.
Defense Language Inst., Monterey, CA.
Book two, part two, of an intermediate-advanced level German refresher course for college students is presented. The volume consists of 42 lessons of text material and 42 prerecorded tapes. A typical unit is made up of spontaneous dialogues, substitution drills, and tests. A dialogue for listening is a short conversation between German speakers who did not use scripts and whose speech contains authentic segments of spoken language. A dialogue for memorization is a repetition of the dialogue for listening with an opportunity for students to repeat parts of the dialogue on tape to facilitate memorization of the material. A dialogue for fluency is a further step in facilitating student memorization of the dialogue. A dialogue for listening permits students to hear the original dialogue once again. The students listen to improve pronunciation and to hear the intonation of the native German speakers. The dialogue for participation is an informal checkup. Students test their ability to perform each of the two roles on tape from memory. On the tests at the end of each unit, students are asked to listen and immediately provide a suitable written English translation. (SW)
