This self-instructional book is designed for students interested in learning to speak present-day standard Albanian. It is intended to be used in conjunction with a teacher or with tape recordings that can serve as a model for oral/aural exercises. The 30 units provide material for about 180 hours of study. Each unit consists of five parts: (1) the dialog, in which the goal is to be able to recite the dialog simultaneously with the model after several repetitions, and then to coordinate the written Albanian version with accurate pronunciation; (2) an analysis which gives an explanation of how the Albanian language functions, along with generalizations the student may have missed; (3) hints on pronunciation and a practice section that focus on the details of Albanian pronunciation; (4) a listening section, where already presented material is worked into a new conversation; and (5) supplementary vocabulary. The Albanian-English glossary lists all the words in the book and the number of the page on which they were first presented. (PJM)
