Gikuyu ni Kioigire: A First Course in Kikuyu. 1: Wirute Gikuyu.
Bennett, Patrick R.; And Others
The first in a series of three volumes comprising a college-level course in Kikuyu, a Bantu language, this document contains the outline for a full-length course whose objective is to provide oral mastery of grammatical principles necessary for more than survival-level proficiency. The 20 units are organized into grammatical categories. Each unit includes a series of statements introducing the topics to be covered in the unit, 5 to 10 taped drills with full instructions and an example, and a set of assignment exercises to provide additional practice in manipulating the structures covered. The course is designed to be combined with a shorter, companion course, "Aria-i na Aagikuyu" (volume 2 in this series). (MSE)
