Spanish for Peace Corps Volunteers in Specialized Technical Jobs.
Wilkens, Joseph P.
This text, intended for Peace Corps volunteers, aims to train them in the Spanish linguistic and communicative skills they will need to perform their specialized tasks effectively and expeditiously. The text contains two sections. The first is a series of units to be used by all students and is designed to teach basic grammatical structures and vocabulary. The units contain the following features: (1) practical conversations, drills, and linguistic situations; (2) pattern drills; (3) cultural notes on aspects of Latin American culture; and (4) grammatical notes. The second section contains units that present no new grammatical structures. The focus of this part of the book is technical language, that is, units designed to teach specialized vocabulary and usage. Also included are series of conversational units pertaining to the geography, culture, and dialects of different Latin American countries. (AMH)
