Mainous, Bruce H.; And Others
This manual, part of a one-semester course for North American agriculture specialists preparing to work in Latin America, is built around specimens of agricultural writing in Spanish. The manual contains 12 lessons on general agriculture, sugar production, grain production, geography, forestry, animal husbandry, soy bean production, agricultural economics, poultry production, pork production, and other food crops. Each lesson consists of several readings, questions based on the readings, lexical exercises for vocabulary expansion, multiple choice and completion exercises, a dialogue, and exercises using idioms. Two tests, a grammar review, and a Spanish-English glossary are also provided. Audio cassettes ((not included) reproduce in sound this basic manual. (MSE)
