Persian Basic Course: Skits and Supplementary Reader.
Defense Language Inst., Monterey, CA.
A supplementary reader and skits for a basic course in Persian are presented that are designed for use in the Defense Language Institute's intensive programs for native English language speakers. The collection of skits is written about everyday activities of the Persian people. The places and situations, as well as the language, have been chosen to portray the most ordinary and recurrent events of daily life in Iran. The skits are intended to be acted out in class with some preparation on the part of the students. Short stories and essays have been prepared to give the more ambitious student some extra reading material. They are intended to provide a useful and varied selection of words in an interesting context, and they should be easier to read than the daily newspapers and magazines. They should be read during the student's own time and as an extra curricular reading activity. (SW)
