Hawkinson, Annie K.
This handbook contains two types of materials: (1) texts in Swahili with English translations, and (2) vocabulary lists. The introduction of the book provides numerous suggestions for using the texts and lists to expand vocabulary, improve ability in using grammatical structures, developing writing and speaking ability, and improving listening comprehension skills. The handbook is divided into four sections: (1) culture, a collection of folktales; (2) health-related information; (3) articles on Tanzanian agriculture; and (4) articles on politics included specifically to help the volunteer learn to read the newspaper in Swahili and to talk about politics. The book is illustrated with pen-and-ink drawings. (AMH)
