Persian Basic Course: Volume IV, Lessons 39-52.
Defense Language Inst., Monterey, CA.
The fourth of 10 volumes of a basic course in Persian is presented that is designed for use in the Defense Language Institute's intensive programs for native English speakers. The central feature of the daily lesson is the structured dialogue, which systematically incorporates a number of grammatical features. Grammar is not explained through conventional explanations or discussions. After students perceive the morphological changes through intensive oral usage and class drill, they gain additional practice by after-class reading. The following sequence of text material is followed: (1) grammar perception drills using the familiar and known vocabulary to introduce the new morphological patterns; (2) daily dialogue involving new morphological patterns and new vocabulary; (3) dialogue translation into English; (4) grammar analysis, which exemplifies the structural patterns in a very simple language; (5) grammar drills; (6) a Persian narrative and questions; (7) oral and written homework; and (8) vocabulary lists. Tapes accompany the text. (SW)
