French Basic Course. Volume 1, Lessons 1-15.
Defense Language Inst., Monterey, CA.
This first volume of the DLI Basic Course in French contains 15 lessons, one for each day of the first three weeks and initial phase of the course. Every fifth lesson is a review lesson. The objective of the initial phase is to enable the student to distinguish and produce the sounds of French with sufficient accuracy to understand and speak French within the limits of the vocabulary and grammar included in this volume. The approach is audio-lingual and student-centered. The volume includes the entire phonology and the first grammar lessons. The stage is set, as well, for the study of French life and culture. The individual lessons include the following elements: (1) perception drills on new materials; (2) a formal dialogue which has to be memorized for instant recall; (3) homework consisting of intensive drill on known material, mastery of a certain number of vocabulary items, and the study of grammar notes; and (4) pattern practice and performance which leads gradually to free conversation.
