Setswana: Communication and Culture Handbook. Peace Corps Language Handbook Series.
Hopkins, David B.
This handbook presents many situations in Botswana which the Peace Corps volunteer is likely to be involved in, and it establishes classroom activities that require the students to exchange messages in the Setswana language that are appropriate to the cultural context. An introductory section acquaints the learner with techniques of language learning, explains the purpose and design of the materials, and provides indications on how to use this handbook. Most of the units are divided into basic and supplementary lessons. Generally, units contain the following parts: (1) objective, (2) basic dialogue or narrative with translation, (3) cultural usage notes, (4) class activities, (5) supplementary activities, and (6) worksheets. The volume concludes with a unit on a comparison of the United States and Botswana cultures, an English-Setswana glossary, and a picture dictionary. (AMH)
