Gikuyu ni Kioigire: A First Course in Kikuyu. 2: Aria-i na Aagikuyu: An Introduction to Kikuyu Conversation.
Bennett, Patrick R.; And Others
The second in a series of three volumes comprising a college-level course in Kikuyu, a Bantu language, this document contains a complete short, intensive course consisting of units organized by semantic categories. Its objective is to provide basic survival speaking and listening skills. The 10 units cover these topics: basic greetings; location; origins; work; negotiation, commands, necessity, time; modifiers; ownership, existence, buying/selling; objects, passives, quotations; auxiliaries, implied quotations, reasons, purpose; and completed action and temporal and conditional expressions. Each unit consists of four quarters covering unit subtopics, and each subtopic quarter includes an introduction to the topic, a set of initial drills, a summary of constructions covered, an inventory of constructions and, in some cases, a vocabulary list. The units also include taped drills and supplementary slides (not included in this document). In a typical university course, this volume would be combined with the longer course outline, "Wirute Gikuyu" (volume 1 of this series). (MSE)
